Someone unknowingly brought back a great memory for me the other day. Thanks Denise!
Almost 20 years ago, I saw a movie with my ex and a bunch of our friends. I only saw this movie once on the ‘big screen’, but it was a night and experience I’ll never forget!
A popular theatre in the area was closing and they were giving a final midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Let There Be Lips!
Don’t run out and rent it if you haven’t, it’s just not the same unless you experience it LIVE!
Not only were people dressed up like their favourite characters, they had PROPS!
Toast, rice, toilet paper, newspapers, water guns, things I had no idea what they were, and so many things I can't even remember.
The audience shouted things back to the characters onscreen. - Did you know you can buy an Audience Participation Soundtrack on Amazon.com? And you can find an audience participation script HERE.
When the characters got married, the audience threw rice, during the dinner scene, they threw toast, and lookout when it rained!!! The squirt guns were pulled out and the crowd got soaked!
So THAT'S why people had newspapers over their heads?????
For over 30 years, people have been jumping out of their seats, running down to the front of the theater so they can dance the 'Time Warp' with their beloved characters.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is all about audience participation. You can sing, yell, dance and throw things when normally this type of behaviour would get you thrown out!
You can try and watch the MOVIE when you go to the Rocky Horror Picture Show ... but if you do, you'll miss the best part of the SHOW ;-)
Like I said, the sights, the sounds, the characters in the audience ... it was totally awesome! A night I'll never forget!
Or maybe it was just the brownies .... 'Wadda ya mean we just saw Sound of Music?!?!?' ;-p
Let's do the time warp aaaaggggaaaaiiiinnnnn ......!!!!!
