June 27, 1998
Yes!!!!!!!!!! Summer is finally here and
we've seen literally dozens of friendly faces
magically reappear in line, after so many
months away. We've missed you all and
we're glad you're back. Summertime is here,
the temperature is rising, and clothing
seems to get flimsier and flimsier. Not that
we're complaining. Yes, of course, tonight is
Midnight Insanity's traditional "Lingerie
Night" (the last Saturday of every month),
and we invite you all the join us on stage to
show us what you've got!!
Speaking of special shows and theme
nights, two weeks ago marked Midnight
Insanity's first "Luau Night", which was a
considerable amount of fun. Grass skirts
(in rainbow colors no less!), coconut bras
and all that nifty Hawaiian attire (plus lei's
for everyone!!) made for a highly colorful
night, and a most entertaining show.
Shame on you, if you didn't make it, since we
probably won't have another until sometime
It's time for some fun-in-the-sun. Midnight Insanity invites you to a most unusual event. We'll be taking over Central Park on Sunday, June 28th (that's tomorrow!!!) to enjoy a little romp in the sun and enjoy some non-stormy weather for a change. The park is located next to the Huntington Beach Public Library, on Talbert Ave., between Gothard and Goldenwest.
Facing the library, you'll want to park to the
far left, where all the trees are. Take the
trail that follows the row of trees, and runs
parallel to the parking lot. It's a fairly short
walk to the restrooms, and on the left will be
a stage area (of course!) with a lot
bleacher-style seats. That's where we'll be!!
There's a map on our webpage, and possibly
on the back of the programs this evening.
Failing that, we should have some signs
posted (look for the big MI symbol). You'll
want to bring your own food, drinks and,
ummm, "playthings". Folks will start
showing up around 11ish or so.
If you were planning on joining us
next Saturday on the 4th of July (and we
know you were!), we're sorry to report that
we won't be performing next week. The
theatre will be closed and the rest of us will
probably be somewhere else lighting off
pyrotechnics, blowing stuff up, and possibly
getting drunk (not necessarily in that
order). We haven't quite picked our target
location just yet, but if you wish to join us,
contact a cast member, we'll try to let you
know where we'll be...
We *do* have a bit of sad news for you ... it seems our Frank-N-Furter, Chris, and his fiancee', Annette, have landed a primo job opportunity in the state of Arizona. Since the California <--> Arizona commute is a *bit* much, Chris has retired from the role of Frank-N-Furter. :-( Chris' last performance with us was Luau Night.
Midnight Insanity will miss Chris and
Annette, but we wish them lots of luck with
their new business, and hope to see them at
the Las Vegas convention, in October.
So ... who will fill Chris' high heels?
Ironically enough, it's "Rocky" (yes, folks,
that's his name), who comes to us from a
cast in Arizona, along with his girlfriend,
Missy, who has been performing as our
Columbia for quite some time now. Both
bring considerable talent and experience
from the Tempe cast, and it shows!! Rocky
has performed "Frank" and "Brad Majors"
for us several times, and we welcome him to
the stage as our Sweet Transvestite!!
Well folks, our favorite singing bald-
guy-in-the-window is once again appearing
on the silver screen. Richard O'Brien (Riff-
Raff) will in the new Cinderella movie entitled
"Ever After", which also features Drew
Barrymore and Anjelica Houston. Richard's
character is not given but he shouldn't be
too hard to spot. :-) "Ever After" is
scheduled for release on August 7th.
As for our other God, Tim Curry, he
can't seem to get a break these days.
Madness Reigns is on hold, and his new
movie, "The Addams Family Reunion" will
*not* be aired on the Fox Family Channel in
September/October, as we previously
mentioned. Instead, the new air date will be
October ... 1999!!! For those of you who
can't wait, we're also told it is being
released on video (at Suncoast) in August.
As October inches closer, we look forward to partying-down in the city of
sinful pleasures, Las Vegas!! If you didn't
know it by now, a Rocky Convention is taking
place on October 9th & 10th in Las Vegas
at the Four Queens Hotel (you knew it had
to be there, didn't' you!!) Midnight Insanity
will be a featured performer at this
convention, and we are scheduled for several
special performances. If you'd like to join us
on stage at a *national convention*, let us
know after the show. If you just wanna
come down and party with us, feel free to do
that, too!!! For info about RockyCon '98,
contacting Megan Tabor: 702-434-8361.
If you haven't been to the Midnight
Insanity webpage in a while, you may wish to
stop by again and sign our "Freakbook". It's
a lot like a guestbook, it's just designed for
folks like you. :-) We'd appreciate the
comments of all your loyal folks who come to
see us so damned often, and would love to
hear from you on the `net. If you *haven't*
been to see our webpage, then what are you
waiting for??? We have dozens of pictures
from the show, a calendar of special events,
some cast bios, a Transylvanian Tymes
Archive, and, well, a freakbook, but you
already knew that. :-) The URL to the site,
is at the end of this page...
Midnight Insanity would like to thank the Art Theatre Management Management and crew, for allowing us to perform *every fucking week*; the Shorehouse Café, for giving us a place to crash after the show; Chris and Annette, for all their hard work, we'll miss you!!; Bob, for buying all those costumes for Luau Night, and of course, for all her work in line; everybody who filled in last weekend and really made the show happen, even with a skeleton crew; and, of course, you, our loving and faithful audience, who come to see us, *every fucking week*!!!
