Halloween, the one day of the year
that they rest of the world dresses the way
we do . . . only this time, it's "cool". Welcome
to Midnight Insanity's Haunting Halloween
Show!!! We're glad to see you all come down
for our biggest show of the year and we
*DO* have some surprises in store for you.
Try not to get sick on all that candy . . .
This year, the month of October brought many of the Spirits of Midnight Insanity, past, back to our stage for a performance or two. Kristine has returned to the stage in the role of Magenta, once two weeks ago, and again, tonight. Natasha, gone a whole three weeks, returned to do Magenta for us last week. Also, Diana returned to us from her long absence and performed as "Kimi Wong", the front-center Transylvanian and former wife of Richard O' Brien, Leda and Carolee return from their departure after their roll-in-the- car last month. Travis, a former Riff-Raff and Transylvanian, showed up to grace us with the "Graveyard of Ships" tickets, the haunted Queen Mary excursion. In addition to the old faces, we've seen a number of new ones as well. Marty joins us as a new
Transylvanian, Mike gave us his debut
performance as Rocky Horror last week, and
Guenhwyvar Llewellyn Orfever joins us as our
new Props Slave. We also got to see
performances in the role of Magenta from
Kym (Senior Transylvanian) and Shawna
(Queen Prop-Tart) as well as performances
from Cecilia (hi Scotty!) and Becky in the
role of Trixie.
October Birthdays include Cecilia (Props,
10/4), Jan (audience, 10/5), Daniel (Frank,
10/12), Becky (Trixie, 10/14), Shannan &
Shonna (former twin Trixies, 10/18), and Lisa
(long-distance groupie, 10/20). November
Birthdays include Roger (Manager, 11/4),
Shawn (Tech, 11/4), Kristine (11/14) and
Keturah (11/16). Spank away!
No, not Christmas hams, those aren't for another month or two. This was just to inform you that the New Arkham Players decided to put on two *more* performances of "Much Ado About Nothing" (featuring various past-and-present Midnight Insanity cast members) this past weekend. These were evening performances, again, at the Dana Point Plaza. No
additional performances are presently
scheduled but with this bunch, ya never
know . . .
Barry Bostwick was seen in a Carol
Burnett special last Monday, 10/24. The
special was about (guess what?), Sex . . . in
particular, Sex in films. Barry was also seen
in Anacin commercials which may be in
rotation again now that the flu season has
descended upon us once again. Tim Curry
has landed a "regular guest star" role on
NBC's new space-TV (ie: Star Trek-like)
show, "Earth 2". "Regular guest star"?
Would that make him the equivalent of "Q"?
We'll certainly keep you posted on upcoming
details. Stars of our own stage, former
twin Trixies Shannan and Shonna, plus
present cast twins Mandi (Transylvanian)
and Melissa (make-up) will be on the TV as
guests on the Marylin Kagan show. The
topic of the talk-show is "Twins who don't
get along". The show is presently scheduled
to air on November 7th at 9:00am (yikes!)
on Channel 9 . . . though this could change, it
already has at least once! Yay, TV-Land!
As you should all be painfully aware, the "Interview with a Vampire", featuring Tom Cruise, is opening shortly. The opening night screening (Friday, November 11th), closest to 8pm, at whichever big Hollywood theatre it premieres at, has been unofficially designated "party night", and all Rocky fans are invited to attend. There will
be free buttons and other giveaways for those in
line. The purpose of our journey is to finally
"voice" our opinions of the movie, as only a
Rocky audience can. Additional details
should be in the program in upcoming weeks,
or see either Bill (Brad) or Laura (LeStat T-shirts)
Daniel will be departing for a few
weeks as he pursues his musical interests,
playing his guitar. We wish him luck and
hope for a quick return. The San Dimas
theatre closed down this month.
Management can be a bitch sometimes
which is why we love ours soooooo much!!!
(hi guys!) Midnight Insanity has started
issuing Trading Cards of various cast
members. The pick is pretty much random
so you're just gonna have to be here to find
out who comes out next!
Midnight Insanity especially thanks
The Art Theatre management and crew;
Moonbean, for staying open late *just* for
us; Raul Julia for his efforts in the two
Addams Family movies; Steve and Debbie at
Security Engineered Mach., for supplying us
with confetti for the past year; Andrea, for
tonight's trailer (you'll see); Bob, for that
wonderful, inspiring and uplifting post-card
(ya had to be there); and of course, the
people who make it all worthwhile, our loving,
devoted and sometimes psychotic audience,
no matter what you look like on a week-to-week
