YEAH! [30 Jul 2008|08:56am]

[ mood | awake ]

 I'm sure most of you know that RHPS will be playing here in Fresno starting Oct. 31st!!! Now, I got a flier a couple months ago about this, so who knows if it is really going to happen or not.  Maybe it was, and then something happened.  

I can't find the flier for the life of me but I thought you could find out more info by contacting that new lil art institute down in Tower.  

Anyone else heard of this?

update [06 Mar 2006|08:12pm]

Hey guys. As you might've noticed, Mitch, the fearless leader of this here community deleted the journal that he had when he made it. He's still around, this time as glyndagoodwytch, but we're technically sans maintainer. He deleted his old LJ before making his new one, thus rendering it impossible to transfer maintenence to himself. (I think.) Whoops! Well, it happens. Dunno why he hasn't at least become a member here though. *drums fingers*
Mitch is very busy between school & GCP, but still interested in getting Rocky started around here. Keep talking, though! This community's only as dead as you make it. But for your visual enjoyment, if you're interested, here's a fun community you might want to add as well. http://community.livejournal.com/rhps_daily/profile

Halloween!!! [02 Nov 2005|09:50pm]

[ mood | predatory ]

Anyone have the pleasure of seeing the performers at Club DeJa Vu do the soundtrack on Halloween? I wasn't able to get right in front, but I could hear the songs and see a bit of what they were doing on stage. I was happy enough just hearing it. ;)

On another note, any news on getting this goin in Fresno?

I am very happy that I stumbled upon this community whilst sitting here in my
boxers, sipping my morning coffee for a number of reasons... The first being
that there is a group of people here in Fresno, myself included, who already do
pay tribute to his Royal Highheelness once a year, usually on Halloween night. I
am speaking of the cast of Club DeJa
... We put together a Rocky Show for our customers that usually just
consists of various musical numbers, my favorite character has always been the
sweet Doctor, but I am perfectly content with bringing Riff Raff to life...
Until my dear friend Michael takes a tumble down the stairs, of course,
Showgirls style.

I've thumbnailed a few pictures from our performances...Collapse )

Creating a Floorshow Cast- Part the First [08 Sep 2005|11:12pm]

One might ask- "But Mitchell, why are you so obsessed with creating a shadowcast in Fresno?" "Why take such a thankless and almost impossible task?" I answer these questions simply. Fresno needs Rocky Horror. The southern Central Valley, and more importantly the surrounding areas of Fresno, and Clovis, have a high concentration of Rocky Horror fans. With the closest showings of Rocky Horror at least up to a dsitance of a four hours drive away (you try driving home after a night of Rocky for four hours and you'll see what I am talking about). With this handicap in place, much of Fresno's youth see Rocky Horror for the first time, not in a theatre, with audience participation- and a shadowcast, at midnight as it is best veiwed. They watch Rocky at home, or with friends on D.V.D. or on Cable Television- Thus loosing much of the impact of the show.

It becomes clear, almost crystal clear- Fresno needs a shadowcast. I know others before me have attempted and failed, I know others have decided to throw parties, have people watch the movie with them at home. I know all this. But I am resounded to bring forth a shadowcast- or die trying.

So how do we do this?

Well that's easy.

1) Letter Writing Campaign- get the word out to the theatres, to the newspapers, to everyone basically that will listen. We are here, we are freaky, and it's better to get us off the street and into the theatres where we can put our creative energies to use worshiping our cult movie at the midnight theatre altar. But seriously. the more we get the word out, the easier it will be for us to find a theatre.

2) Petition, Petition,Petition- There are a lot, and I mean a lot of Rocky Horror fans out there. We need to hit the streets and get support. Shadowcast members out there in the Tower District,Riverpark, Fashion Faire, Fresno City College, Fresno State College, hell even Downtown buisnesses having people sign petitions not only shows the theatres and their management that Rocky Horror WILL SELL WELL, That it's a worthwhile risk, and that it has a market. Also those interested in being in the cast can get information on the cast, and thus the cast can grow.

3) Form a Cast- Thus said, the truely first thing that must be done is get a cast set. When that is done the cast can present themselves to theatre management types and it's hard to say no to Frank-N-Furter when he's standing in front of you with those sad puppy dog eyes. Not only is it important to have a cast, but everything in a cast, Security, Leadership, Techies, even a cast photogropher would be nice. Remember the theatres we will be talking to will be more open to talk to us if we have security already planned out. I personally plan to talk to the theatres in question about what they will and will not allow as for Props. Of course no Open Flames, Toast, Rice, Hot Dogs, Prunes, ETC. nowadays. But we can still sell prop bags. Anyways- the forming of the cast will be complicated, involving auditioning, and the likes. Which I will alert you to later.

4) Cast Leadership- We will need the usual leadership roles much akin to a high school drama club. We need a President (which will be me-it's a Rocky-tatorship...) a few show directors (which will help me cast the show), A Vice President, A Media Chairperson, a Treasurer,and a Secretary. In a few weeks I will post the "Rocky Horror Constitution" Setting forth the rules, the bylaws, and the general junkifications that needs to be set forth before casting begins. The more professional we look, the more likely a theatre will take the risk of Rocky. The Good news is- as a member of this community, I already know you are interested in Rocky. So you get vetoing power to anything in the Rocky Constitution. It's by the people for the trannies.

5) Inform the Masses- Talk to as many people you can, Spread the word. Lead them to this website,Make connections, talk talk talk. When I (or in the future the chairman of publicity) post flyers on here, help find a place to poster. In a cast's inception networking is important. Finding a theatre that's supporive to Rocky can be found through Networking.

But First Thing Is First

We need a cast name. One that shows what we are, who we are, and has a connection to Rocky. I'd be very happy if my members would reply to this post with cast name ideas. Later on we will vote for a cast name via anonymous comment voting. But first, nomination.

The rest of the questions are irrelevant.

Keep in mind, that despite moving home to Fresburg, WUT still bugs me about joining them & I just might. It shouldn't be a problem, as they're only once a month. However, if there's any schedule conflict, I will do their show, since I've known them longer.

[06 Sep 2005|06:18pm]

i was just wondering... what is it with everybody saying they're too fat to play a role in a shadow cast? i think large men and women are just as beautiful as the skinny ones, and often times, even better. i saw a RHPS production in AZ where all the women in the cast were very large. they were beautiful and very sensual, so don't limit yourselves!
(all of this was said trying to sound as little like a motivational speaker as possible. haha!)

Stunning!!! I've wondered for so long why there hasn't been a showing in Fresno (for awhile)!!! I didn't live here when I heard there was one. I was just looking on websites for the closest show to me, where I found one (complete with shadow cast) in LA, San Luis Obispo, and Oakland. I went to one in Oakland last year, it was ok but nothing like the show that my cousin and I went to every Saturday night in San Jose for 3 years. This is the one I miss most, so Oakland didn't really compare...however the layout of the theatre in Oakland rocked!!! There were tons of loveseats and couches in front of the stage!!!
