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.

Roles you perform regularly

Dr. Scott and Dr. Frank N Furter (What can I say .. I love playing doctor.)

Year you joined HoH
I joined HoH in 2010 after sitting in the audience almost every Saturday night for three years. 

Why did you join HoH
I joined HoH because I was tired of paying $7 every week to see the show.  Actually, I joined after playing Frank on “Rock Star” night.  The experience of performing on stage (even in Bergenfield) was so awesome that I wanted to experience it every week and not just on random occasions.  And after going to Rocky on and off for twenty years, I decided that it was now or never to join cast.

Your most memorable Rocky Horror moment/memory
Before my wife and I even started dating, we went out with a bunch of friends to see Rocky in Philadelphia.  I was sitting next to her (‘cause I liked her) and every time I cursed (during a callback line) I leaned over and apologized profusely to her.  She thought that I was cute and funny and the rest is history.   This is a much better story than the time I took a date to see Rocky, lost my car keys in the theater, and had to call my parents at 3 a.m. to pick us up.  That was definitely a last date.

Interesting, non-Rocky related, fact about you
I own more than 50 pairs of shoes (not including my heels for Rocky).

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!

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.

I regularly attend regional Burning Man events and even helped found one of the more popular regional theme camps: Camp TIKI.
