About Us

The Denton Affair

The Denton Affair (TDA) is Cincinnati’s best, worst, and only Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow cast! We perform at The Esquire Theater every other Saturday night at midnight!

Rocky Horror is an audience participation film. This means you will get out of your seats, dance around, yell obscenities, throw things in the theater, and much more!

Be sure to buy a survival kit at our merch table in the theater lobby before the show! Survival kits are full of goodies that can be thrown around during the show.

Buy tickets here!

Little Shop of Horrors Shadowcast!

The Denton Affair is proud to present a live shadowcast of Little Shop of Horrors! Our first shadowcast of Little Shop was on July 16th, 2022 at The Esquire Theatre. Missed it? Don’t worry! We are doing it AGAIN on Saturday, September 23rd! The same day AS THE MOVIE! HOLY PLANTS!

We are giving Little Shop the Rocky Horror treatment! So come prepared for pre-show costume contest, games, and Little Shop-themed survival kits!
