Antici-paShawn: The Drip - A New RHPS Font
blog image
Hey Folks, I've finally finished my first RHPS font, "The Drip". I wanted to expand on the work that Coda did with Double Feature by allowing there to be significantly more options for the drip pattern for each number and letter. With my font I've created at least four alternates for each, allowing...

Rocky Horror Cast "Types"....in Stereo
trixie icon
Here's a basic truth about Rocky Horror:  Every cast is different.   Here's another:  Every cast is the same.   Oh, they vary in many ways, some subtle and some not-so-subtle.  But when it comes right down to it, there are a lot of very similar (and similarly minded) peo...

Cast Spotlight

Denton Delinquents The Denton Delinquents was started in September of 2006 in Portland, Oregon, and remained at their original venue for nearly six years before making the decision to move to their current theatre in Vancouver, Washington.

On hiatus for nearly a year while they negotiated with FOX to get the license to show the movie and perform in their theatre, they have settled just 12 miles from their original start, which is still home to a cast. The Delinquents used to allow all ages to join, but in their new location cast membership is limited to 18+, though their shows continue to be all-ages. The majority of the Delinquents have been around for at least a year or more, and they really love what they do - and it shows! An incredibly dedicated bunch, they perform at The Kiggins Theatre in Vancouver, Washington on the 4th Saturday of every month.

    I really want to join a shadowcast, but I'm super nervous. Does anyone know how to join or who to ask?

    "Years ago, my group used a close variation on that:
    "Hey, Frank! What's your favorite high-protein drink?"

    When a bunch of our cast went up to D.C. to see the 1980 tour of RHS, our Riff actually blurted this out at that point in the play.

    The rest of us died of embarassment for a moment, because at this point in time, AP at the play was not done (and there was even an announcement to this effect at the beginning).

    Fortunately, the actor playing Frank shot back with perfect timing: "Milk! What's yours?" while leaning forward and giving him an "in your face, bitch!" look, and the audience went nuts.

    Afterward, we went backstage to speak to the actors, and when our Riff apologized, the actor laughed it off and said that he'd been waiting for someone to do it, and that it had given him him the best response of the night."

    Wow! That's cool that Frank talked to you! I wonder what would happen if I cheered for Columbia during her monologue, tried to cheer her up when Eddie died, or screamed at her not to run towards the gun when she was about to get shot. Something similar to your story happened during one of the 2009 Halloween Horror Nights recordings on YouTube, when the audience said "Goodbye, all of this!" the Riff Raff actor asked "Really?" and gave the middle finger

    I've only watched the movie on TV and DVD, but I have some favorite lines from what I have seen on the Internet in the AP scripts,in the Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights video and the Fame clip:
    I can show you my favorite obsession. "SEX!" (This one makes me laugh.)
    Dammit! (CLAP!) I knew we should have gotten that spare tire fixed!
    "Eddie says eat, shit, and die!"
    Well, I've had enough! "Peek-a-Boo!"
    "Hey, let's see if Columbia notices we placed her vibrator with a cactus."

    I've also have a clever line, but here is the background of how I thought of this one:
    In a play production from Korea I saw on YouTube, when Columbia dies, she sings "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?" How clever, especially since it's assumed she likes Disney things with her mouse ears and (if you paid close attention during the "ring around the lesbians" scene), a Mickey Mouse clock in her room!
    So here is the callback line:
    Excuse me. "THE COLD NEVER BOTHERED ME ANYWAY!" (Door shuts, and Columbia cries)

    Hello! My name is Ashley, and I am 16 years old, and I am both a virgin to this site and to RHPS. I first discovered this movie last summer, when reading a thing about limited releases (since I like anime, and most movies are limited release, and this quote was on the page:

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which first premiered in 1975, is still shown at limited theaters making it now the longest-running theatrical release in film history.
    Ever since that summer, I would research the movie every night during the summer I couldn't sleep. Eventually, I knew how the WHOLE ENTIRE movie went, but that didn't bother me much, since I used to cry whenever unexpected deaths happened in PG-13 movies. I had no favorite character at first, but it eventually turned out to be Columbia! She's so adorable and is quite similar to me: hyperactive,is upset when people are hurt, and hates if other people are acting mean towards her. Riff Raff is my least favorite character, because he likes to hurt people and is selfish because he only cares about Magenta.
    I eventually watched the movie on Halloween this year on LOGO, and then got the DVD and watched it.
    I hope I get to be in a shadowcast when I am 17.
