RHPS VIRGIN - refers to the many unfortunate people who have never experienced THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (RHPS) in a theater with an audience and a live cast. Seeing it on home or on TV doesn't count!
You came to this page because you are hopefully going to consider attending a showing of Rocky Horror at Liberty Hall.
If you've already seen the movie by itself on TV or home video and wondered what all the fuss was about, read on. If you haven't seen the movie on TV or home video - GREAT! The more surprised you are on your first time, the more fun it is.
Rocky Horror is the first and only true audience participation movie. People yell back lines at the screen during the extended pauses between dialogue, dress up in costume and act out the film, and throw props at various times during the film.
First, the only thing you really need to bring your first time out in order to have fun is a sense of humor, and money for admission. Of course, being surrounded by 10-15 of your friends is also a good thing. You should dress in whatever makes YOU feel comfortable, but also does not violate any local standards (this usually means nudity is out.) Speaking of violating laws and norms of society, it is usually best to go to RHPS sober - not only will you be more in-tune to pick up all the clever things going on around you, Liberty Hall will not admit people who appear drunk - we don't want to clean up after drunk people!
But hey, what about the props and audience participation lines and dressing up in costume? Well, no one expects you to know much of anything your first time out. While audience participation is mandatory to keep the show alive, it is not mandatory that everyone participate, every time. RHPS Virgins are not expected to know a thing.
A prop bag will be available at the the door to purchase - so you don't bring a thing with you. Just watch along with everyone else to figure out when to throw these items.
So get your ticket - before they are gone - and join us for the time warp!!
