...and then, an unexpected return to my youth. *grin*triadruid
and I went out last night to see Fishnets and Floorshows do the Rocky Horror Picture Show at Screenland. We get in the door, having navigated the question "Are you here for RHPS, or the Bible study?", and are standing around idly (okay, I was gawking at a hot androgynous redhead... all RHPS troupes are apparently by law required to have a hot androgynous redhead, and thank all the gods for that really!).
Then, said H.A.R. is pointing at me. And saying "She's cute, let's ask her." Then, zie's walking over saying, "How many times have you seen this movie?". I fumble around in my brain for a number. "Well, I used to be in a cast in Florida, so, a lot
, but it's been a really long time since I've seen the film." Zie says, "Good enough. Our Columbia can't make it tonight, could you be Columbia?" I say... er. And then, I say "Sure, but I can't tap-dance. Do you have a hat?"
And lo, it came to pass that I did not get to sit safely in the audience and yell out rude things at the screen, but instead, got to run around for two hours variously screaming, dancing, and flailing. Apparently, I did all right, (or they're really short of players) because they asked me to come back next week and finish the October run. I'm divided. On the one hand, it's a lot of fun, and I probably wasn't doing anything at midnight next Friday and Saturday. On the other, I have *no* costuming, I still can't tap-dance, and I woke up this morning with glitter in my eye. Hrm.
Anyway, they put on a very funny show. Since I haven't been to a production in manymany years, there's a whole load of new lines that I haven't heard -- you'd be amazed how many Sarah Palin jokes you can fit into the script. If you are in the area and have any interest at all in the Cult of Rocky, I suggest you buy tickets now. The show runs next Friday and Saturday and midnight. Saturday's performance is alleged to be costume night, with some sort of contest.
EDIT: In other news, triadruid
wore PVC pants to the show. I believe the phrase "Hot Damn!" is appropriate.
