|To Rocky or not to Rocky?

So, the Warner Theatre is doing The Rocky Horror Show again this year. I was on the fence about doing it again - as much as I love the show, I didn't have the best time working with a couple of the people there. So when I found out I'd missed auditions, I was actually kind of relieved that the decision had been made for me.
Well, the decision had been made for me - they went ahead and cast me again. I found out Saturday when the director sent out a welcome e-mail to the cast. The first rehearsal is Monday. Tomorrow.
There's another show - that pays (RHS doesn't)- that I'd like to do that opens the weekend after Rocky closes, so it's highly unlikely that I could do both. So now I don't know what to do. I wish they could have given those of us who were in the show last year the opportunity to audition for some of the roles (if I was playing Magenta or Columbia I'd probably go for it! But I'm in the ensemble). Of course, if I don't do Rocky, there's no guarantee I'll be cast in the other show, either, which hasn't held auditions yet.
Most of the people I got along with best are not in the show again this year, judging from the e-mail addresses. And the one that completely hates me IS in it again.
Maybe I'll go to the rehearsal tomorrow and size up the situation. Or should I just do it? How often do you get cast in a show like that without even having to audition? Or should I just bow out, since I hadn't entirely planned on doing it again anyway? AAARRRGH! I don't know what to do!
