Rocky Horror 101
Never been to an Audience Participation event before?
Don't sweat it! We've got you covered!
These few simple rules and tips will have you looking like a RHPS Vet in no time!
But what do you do with all this stuff? Here's a little tutorial to help you out:
HANDFUL OF DRY RICE:
To be thrown during the wedding scene at the beginning of the film (along with the actors on screen)
To be worn on your head when Janet does the same during Over At The Frankenstein Place
To be used when Brad & Janet sing "There's a light..."
To be used during the creation scene when the Transylvanians do the same
To be snapped when Frank does the same during the creation scene
To be thrown at the end of the "Charles Atlas Song" Reprise as Rocky and Frank head to the bedroom.
TOILET PAPER (streamers):
To be thrown into the air when Brad cries out "Great Scott"
To be worn when Frank puts on one during the dinner scene
To be thrown when Frank pulls the tablecloth off the dinner table
To be rung when Frank sings "Did you hear a bell ring?" in the song Planet Schmanet Janet
To be thrown during "I'm Going Home" when Frank sings "Cards for Sorrow, Cards for Pain"
PROP ITEMS NOT ALLOWED
We are all about having fun but we have to respect the venue and the other patrons.
In order to keep this an annual event, there are a few items that will not be permitted during the participation scenes.
EGGS, PRUNES, HOT DOGS, TOAST, ETC:
Basically any food item with the exception of the dry rice is a no-no.
Yep, squirting water all over the crowds, the costumes, and the carpets is not okay.
ROLLS OF TOILET PAPER:
No one wants us to have to stop the movie because someone gets knocked out by a roll of Scott
LIGHTERS OR CANDLES:
Let's just say that historic buildings, newspapers, and paper streamers don't mix well with open flames.
LED FLASHLIGHTS OR LASER POINTERS:
Come on. Do we have to explain why...Just don't.
CONFETTI OR GLITTER:
NOPE! We aren't cleaning that up! And if we catch you throwing it, you'll be cleaning it up with tweezers.
*You are more than welcome to bring you own items from home, provided you abide by the rules.
You probably won't be able to purchase everything on the list for less than $3. Just Sayin'.
PLUS purchasing a Participation Pack helps us be able to keep RHPS an annual event!
