Roles you perform regularly:
Magenta & the mysterious person behind the camera running Snapchat

Year you joined HoH:
2018!

Why did you join HoH?
It’s been a dream of mine to be part of a Rocky cast since I was 16. I adore the bizarre concept, I adore the all encompassing atmosphere, I adore acting, and I adore anything and everything odd- so it was a perfect fit for me.

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
It was my first time playing Magenta and right at the end of Touch-A I moved to fake attack Pam and wound up actually punching her in the face. Worst of all, her lipstick got smeared because of me. A true tragic accident. I’m sorry, Pam.

Interesting, non-Rocky related, fact about you:
I’m a practicing psychic! I read tarot cards, palms, auras, and more. If that’s not interesting enough for you, I can also speak pig Latin.

Roles you perform regularly:
Director of Operations
I also perform regularly as Frank N Furter, and less regularly as Riff Raff. I’ve been Eddie and Rocky as well, because sometimes it’s just fun to change it up.

Year you joined HoH:
September 2016

Why did you join HoH?
My best friend was on cast and I made his costumes and did his makeup, so I was at every show anyway. Naturally, I started helping while I was there -- merch, lights, photography, whatever. Being invited to join officially was mostly a "well you're basically on cast anyway, and we need help with event promotion." I didn't intend to start performing, but here we are. 

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
Performing in the Jersey City Cemetery in front of 350+ people was the first time I ever really felt truly confident in my performance.  Performing at the Newton Theater for 600+ people a couple weeks later is to date the most exhilarating experience I've had. Constantly sharing the stage with my friends is what makes it fun. 
 

Interesting, non-Rocky related, fact about you:
I love old music. In the past three years, I've seen The Who, The Beach Boys, Alice Cooper, Paul McCartney, and Paul Simon in concert.

Year you joined HoH:
2012

Why did you join HoH?
I've loved Rocky Horror since I was a young kid. My mother showed me and my brother her Canadian bootleg VHS for years, we even warped it out. We found out about HoH at a convention in '04, I believe, when we met Larry and one day, years later, my brother saw they were looking for tech people so we said, why not? The rest as they say, is history :P

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
Probably the RKO convention in 2013 when I put on the tiny columbia shirt on stage at a rocky raffle.

Roles you perform regularly:
Transylvanian, Trixie, Columbia, Magenta, and Rocky

Year you joined HoH:
2013

Why did you join HoH?
Because I love Rocky Horror and acting. Also, HoH is awesome!

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
The first time I ever Trixie'd. It was at my college and it was the first ever showing for our cast. I was very excited, until I saw how many people were there waiting to get in. (We actually had to turn away about 100 people because our tiny room couldn't fit everybody.) Then I got really nervous, as I had never done any performance like that before. In the end, it was a lot of fun and the audience LOVED it. It was very satisfying, and it marked the beginning of a very wonderful semester of shows. I will also never forget my first Rocky show. It was back in '09 and my friends and I went to see HoH in Bergenfield. I was quite amused by it, to say the least, and knew immediately that I wanted to be part of the cast. It took 4 years, but in 2013 I was finally able to make the phrase "don't dream it, be it," a reality.

Interesting, non-Rocky related, fact about you:
I know quite a few types of dancing. Since I was 4, I have taken ballet, tap, jazz, modern, latin/ballroom, international, and belly dancing classes. I also dance with hula hoops (sometimes while said hoop is on fire ;) ) and was in my high school's colorguard. Do all the things!

Corey

Roles you perform regularly:
Eddie, Dr. Scott, and the Criminologist

Year you joined HoH:
2017

Why did you join HoH?
I've been hooked on Rocky since my freshman year of college, and decided to give performing in it a shot as a part of Audience Night at HoH. After playing both Eddie and Dr. Scott, I knew one time wasn't enough and had to find a way to get back on the HoH stage.

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
 That would probably be my first official HoH show in May of 2017. When I finally got onstage with a lot of the actors who I've watched perform over the last two years, it was such an amazing feeling. But most of all I actually got Eddie's lift down in Hot Patootie, which I would have told you beforehand that I was not capable of.

Interesting, non-Rocky related, fact about you:
I've never broken a bone, but I really want a cast that people can sign.

Roles you perform regularly:
Criminologist and Riff Raff

Year you joined HoH:
1998

Why did you join HoH?
After spending so much time at the show, helping the cast find its first regular theater, hanging out with some of the members outside of the show, and performing in Shock Treatment; it seemed like the next logical step. 

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
My favorite memory has got to be from the first time I went to Rocky Horror (entirely by accident): A few friends and I were aimlessly driving around Teaneck when we ran into a group of cute Goth chicks hanging out in front of a movie theater. As I stood there wiping the smeared whiteface and misplaced angst off the windshield, this chick in a sparkly gold jacket and hat walked by and into the theater. Hypnotized by the shininess of it all, we followed her into the theater just in time for the Time Warp. I had no idea what the Hell I was witnessing except that there were a bunch of lunatics in crazy outfits running around, acting out this really freaking weird movie while other people shouted funny shit and threw stuff at each other. It was like some bizarre, magical dream come true and I was hooked from that moment forward.

Interesting, non-Rocky related, fact about you:
I regularly attend regional Burning Man events and even helped found one of the more popular regional theme camps: Camp TIKI.

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
My most memorable moment is my first Rocky convention. I got to perform as Betty in Shock Treatment and Transie in Rocky. Also, being stuck in a van with castmates you might not have spoken to much previously for 15 hours? Way cooler than it sounds.

It was "about damn time"

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
The sense of relief I felt during the first convention I ran, when 500 people pulled out their lighters and flashlights during "Theres a Light". I suddenly realized that my work was done and I need to sit back and enjoy it.

HOH was asking the universe for a stage manager and I happened to see that Facebook post. Coincidentally, I have stage management experience AND I needed something fun to invest my time into so this seemed to be a perfect soup.

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
Since I’m fairly new on cast, I don’t have anything outstanding yet but taking a cast road trip out to Pittsburgh to support the JCCP (another Rocky cast) and getting to meet Barry Bostwick at their show was pretty rad.
