Why did you join HoH?
My girlfriend pretty much made me. I didn't expect to love it as much as I do.

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
Helping out with the setup for the show at the 40th anniversary convention. I wasn't technically on cast then and it was really stressful trying to get everything set up. But it was awesome to see everybody come together and put on a great show.

I brew my own beer.

Roles you perform regularly:
Eddie, Dr. Scott

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.

Yas

Roles you perform regularly:
Janet, Trixie, and Tech

Year you joined HoH:
2016

Why did you join HoH?
I ended up auditioning for a production of the Rocky Horror Show in 2010 when I was 14 (without ever having seen the movie) and fell in love with it! As soon as I heard that there were midnight showings I had to go. I ended up losing my Rocky Virginity at the Home of Happiness and after that, I kept wanting to come back to do the Time Warp again! I even had the opportunity to Direct a shadow cast performance at my college!

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
Being starstruck by Barry Bostwick on stage. He interviewed me in front of a huge crowd, hugged me, and gave me a pair of underwear that he signed!

Interesting, non-Rocky related, fact about you:
I'm the first Romanian cast member at HoH (as far as I'm aware).

Roles you perform regularly:
Brad, Tech

Year you joined HoH:
2014

Why did you join HoH?
In the late forties, while searching for the ruins of Babylon with my orangutan companion, I came upon a sharply dressed man floating above a small pool of crystalline liquid, whistling an ancient melody. He spoke to me in a language I did not recognize, but it was yet familiar to me, like a childhood memory corrupted by the fascism of old age. I fell into a trance and, upon coming to, found myself in a dark and foreboding courtyard. I was in the Kingdom of Beelzebub, this much I knew. But what day was it? How long had I been entranced? These questions remain without answers, and I am beginning to believe that the questions themselves are merely riddles, meant to enlighten some and obscure others. I never found Babylon, but in the years that followed, came to realize it was within me all along, part of the battle between life and death that we all fight, every day, at the precipice of a dream. The orangutan and I parted ways that day, but on a clear, quiet night, I can still hear him, laughing like the day he was born.

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
The orangutan and I once lost our caravan in a game of rummy with a mustachioed street peddler, but the last laugh was ours when we stole away, barefoot but entirely enlivened, with his wife in tow. We feasted that night on Ful Mudammas and rich, Syrian wine.

Interesting, non-Rocky related, fact about you:
I have lived for 6,000 years and have no idea when I will die.

Year you joined HoH:
May 2017

Why did you join HoH?
I was active in two rocky casts in Maryland and D.C., and I immediately knew when I moved back to Jersey that I would need to join one around here! I joined HoH specifically because I really loved the performance the first time I went.

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
My first time doing Columbia. I did a punk version and wore a rainbow tutu instead of my Columbia shorts and a tiny little golden hat. It was awesome.

Boyscout

Roles you perform regularly:
Social Media Director, Frank N Furter, costume designer/makeup artist to Eric

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:
Meeting Barry Bostwick the first time - and having him mistake me as a performer - was cool. Meeting Barry Bostwick the second time - and having him remember me - was cooler. 

Performing on stage as Frank for the first time, with my friends, was probably coolest (no offense, Barry). 
 

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

To have an artistic excuse to cover myself in duct tape and hot glue at 1am for crowds of strangers and friends alike. Also to have wicked weekends at some sweet spaces with other rad freaks and deviants!

Unfortunately the memory that won't die is when I destroyed the cast Crim book with my butt while playing Rocky. Still sorry, Dante... Beware the booty!

I joined HoH because I was a regular audience member for so long, and I love to act and perform. I had so much fun in the audience that I really wanted to see what it was like to be part of the awesome cast that is Home of Happiness. And so far I am loving it!

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
My second time playing Trixie, I was so confident and walked onto the stage all smooth, and when I set down my basket of treats on the desk, it fell over and the candy flew everywhere. Ruined my groove but now I laugh about it!

Interesting, non-Rocky related, fact about you:
I have not burped since infancy. It's impossible even when I drink soda. I guess I'm just that classy! ;D

I was the first person that was asked to join the cast when it was founded. And then I was also the first person to quit. And then I rejoined again when they needed an Eddie. Its been all downhill from there. 

Why did you join HoH?
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. 

Interesting, non-Rocky related, fact about you:
I own a statue of Mayor McCheese. He lives in my basement. Given that, its somewhat sad that I have no idea who my town's *actual* mayor is.

I'm an artist. I love to paint, draw, sculpt, photography, basically anything creative!

Why did you join HoH?
My late father used to go to the shows when he was younger. Then my ex boyfriend brought me years later and I knew that it was something I needed to be apart of. I felt close to him cause every show felt like one big party and he was a party kinda guy.

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory:
One time when I was playing Janet. During Floor Show I was lying on this women in a wig and fake eyelashes motor-boated her face. That night when I left to go home I spotted her again and she revealed to be my high school math teacher for my senior year the previous year. Oops!
