Roles: Riff-Raff, lights, tech

Year joined: Joined in 2008 (I think), then migrated to Repo!, and now I have returned in 2017.

Favorite callback line: “Dark refrain, darling, dark refrain!”

Favorite food: I hope it has cheese in it.

Why I joined the cast: The Rocky Horror community is one of extreme acceptance and understanding. My first cast was the first place I’d ever seen such extreme bonding amongst random people. Nobody cared where you were on the LGBTQIA spectrum, and everybody was there for everyone else in the group.

How I lost my Rocky virginity: I haven’t! I’m still fresh meat. I managed to avoid being marked at my first show, and a month later I was a part of a cast. Then I left that cast and came to the Come Again Players, and couldn’t be happier.

I don’t actually remember the first time I saw the movie…because I didn’t actually see the movie. All I could see was this fabulous head of curly hair in front of me. I had just driven 12 hours and was falling asleep on a couch while everyone watched it on TV. In my delirious state, I didn’t even know what they were saying was “AP.”

Best Rocky Horror memory: My second time performing at Wicked Faire, we had to use the venue’s lighting guy. Luckily he had seen the show many times before. Instead of giving him a long list of what to light when and how… my directions to him were simply, “have fun.” And he did. And we did. And someone tried to make out with me during the show. It was a good night.

Fun fact: Ever since I was a little boy, dressing up has always been my greatest joy. But when it’s time to be discreet, there’s one thing you just can’t beat: and that’s a strapless backless classical little black dress.
