I went to the Rocky Horror Picture Show the other night and it was great!

The film was as I remembered it, and the audience participa … tion had gone up a notch or two.

When I arrived I was greeted by a young man with a slight limp and a hunchback discretely asked if I had been to one of these types of events before. I indicated that despite wearing normal clothes that I had; and so I ended up with a sticker that said “slut” stuck to my chest.

The people … the bustiers … the bustiers are the people !! (to mis-quote a literary work of my youth šŸ™‚ )

Most attendees got into the spirit of things and dressed … er … down for the occasion. There was a wet bar inside the theatre – no more smuggling your own in like the old days. And everyone danced and partied and threw the stuff in the loot bags provided – the toilet roll was most challenging. Fantastic !!

There was a nice bit of warm up before the movie with a costume parade and competition; and a bit of interjection practice: JANET, DR SCOTT, BRAD, ROCKY !!!!

Big thanks to the Embassy crew for getting into the swig of things – by dressing up – and being willing to clean up the mess after each of the two sessions.

If you want an excuse to wear your underwear on the outside and have a great time, then go next year. …. Now if they would only show Sound of Music again …
