Greetings and welcome once again
to the Art Theatre and the Rocky Horror
Picture Show!!! Midnight Insanity, your
performing cast, will be doing a special
Encore Performance of our latest creation,
"Transylvanian Paradise" . . . hope you like it.
You might also note that the cover art of
tonight's program is the joint work of our
newest Transylvanian, Eric, and his friend,
Sarah. Talk about starting when you're
young! Tonight, of course, is also the
traditional, standard, end-of-the-month
Lingerie Night. We hope you dressed up for
the occasion, since this is the last
standard-anything sort of show, you'll see
for a while. Read on . . .
While the mere appearance of one of us would send most "normal" people screaming for the hills, we *do* like to push the envelope a little, every now and again. The month of October has always found us doing odder things than usual. This month kicks off with "Tacky Horror" (Oct. 5th), the night when Midnight Insanity cast members switch off roles in a most unusual fashion. If you've never seen one, bend over and smack yourself one, and *be here* next week! Lest you get fed a crack of the whip by
Keturah . . . yes, she'll be Frank again! The
following week is "Dead Celebrity Night" (Oct
12th), where you are encouraged to come
dressed as your favorite dead Celebrity.
Yes, we'll allow Elvis. Next up is "Weekend at
Crim's" (Oct 19th) . . . which is essentially
"Weekend at Bernies", with that Midnight
Insanity touch. Our traditional Lingerie
Night will also be "Time Warp" night (Oct
26th), and we encourage you to come
dressed from your favorite decade (ie: 60s,
70s, 80s) . . . we'll be sure to tailor-fit some
music for you!!! Last, we have "Trick or
Treat" night (Oct 31), sorta. It'll be a trick
*and* a treat, if we end up having a
Halloween Show, which is at the moment,
tentative. Stay tuned for more details.
On September 7th, Labor Day weekend, we bid goodbye to our long-time Columbia, Leisa. After performing with us for six years, she has decided to move on. Shed no tears, it was a fun show, and a well deserved tribute to one of our longest- standing cast members. Although she'll not be performing with us, she *has* mentioned that she planned to stop by from time to time, so keep a sharp eye out for her. Some Rocky people never die, and we certainly hope she's one of them. Besides, who could forget all of you people?
Which brings us to our new Columbia
. . . Jamie is presently filling in the role of
Columbia. She has been performing on a
semi-regular basis up at the Montclair
theatre, Friday nights (along with a number
of other M.I. cast members). Also new to
us are new Transylvanians Fozzie, who is
braving the costume of the bald trannie
(trust us, it ain't easy!) and Eric, who, as we
mentioned, is already helping out with the
This past Tuesday, ABC showed "Spin City" at 9:591pm, featuring Barry Bostwick (what are you, drunk?), followed by "Relativity", featuring Cliff DeYoung. So apparently, *both* Brad Majors' have landed roles in the new fall lineup, and both on ABC. However, the "Relativity" broadcast was only a preview, it is moving to Saturdays. Oh, and if you don't know what "Shock Treatment" is, ask a cast member. We'll be sure to fill you in. On a semi-unrelated note, Tim Curry will be lending his voice to the likes of Disney once (actually twice) again. Tim will be providing a voice-over on "The Mighty Ducks", which will be broadcast Saturday mornings on ABC (hmmm, do you see a trend here?) In addition, Walt Disney World has come out with a new 25th Anniversary CD that features music from many contemporary artists (Barenaked Ladies?!), and some not-so-contemporary artists (Olivia Newton-John?!?!), as well as our own lovable Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Tim Curry, who will be singing "The Ballad of Davy Crockett".
Mark your calendars and save your
pennies. Midnight Insanity will be throwing
the 22nd Annual Rocky Horror Convention,
next year on the weekend of June
20th/June 21st. Confirmed guests include
Sal Piro (President of the RHPS Fan Club),
and numerous casts from around the
country, as well as a cast who will be
performing "Shock Treatment" for us
(again, if you don't know . . . ); it should be a
killer weekend, so plan for it now!!!
After an exhausting night at Rocky,
the place to be is Denny's. Our new Denny's
is located in Los Alamitos, off of Katella.
Take 7th Street back to the freeway, grab
the 605 North to Katella (~1 mile), exit
right, off of the freeway. Denny's will be on
your right in about three blocks. All we ask
is that you pay your bills, tip your
Midnight insanity would like to thank the Art Theatre Management and crew, for allowing us to perform here *every fucking week*; Happy Birthday to Steve, John, Leisa, Jen (lights), Rio and Bill; Congratulations to Pete and Mandi; more thanks to Joe, our ultra-cool Denny's Sunday-night waiter who even comes down to see our show; the crew at the new Los Alamitos Denny's, for the efforts they are about to put forth; and as always, our loving, faithful, Time-Warping-till- they-die, audience.
