For the past two weeks, the Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium parking lot in Hilo was transformed into an outdoor playhouse of sorts as the Hilo Community Players (HCP) offered a six-show run of the cult classic Rocky Horror Show – Richard O’Brien’s celebrated pansexual rock musical. There were plans to present it last year, but it was postponed due to the pandemic.
