The fishnets are #FreeToFly, as we raise money to battle Domestic Violence!

Our #FreeToFly (Formerly Heroes For Hope) 5K Charity page is live, and you can find it here!

Each year, we raise money to help Family Shelter Services in their efforts to bring help to victims of Domestic Violence!  Please visit our page, and contribute anything you can to help those who truly need your support!  Our goal, as always, is a whopping $4,711.00, but we’ve exceeded that before – help us do it again!

Special Thanks to team members Audrey Fontaine, Ruth Fink-Winter, Jess Henry, and Brian Banks for bringing the first round of donations to the table, but you, too, can help!  If you’re a member of the cast, sign up to participate and help support this great cause!  If you’re an audience member, please feel free to donate, either at the above link, or at one of our shows (Pssst…we do them every Saturday night)!

Thanks to all of those who have already donated!

To motivate you, here’s a shot of our very own Jess Henry (aka “Pinky”), kicking ass for the cause last year!!!

Heroes for Hope Kickline!
We’re proud to announce that we are walking in the Heroes for Hope charity 5K for the 5th year to raise money for Family Shelter Service. We have raised over $20,000 for FSS in the last 5 years and we are collecting money at the show, so please bring a little extra when you come see us. No donation too big or too small – we will happily take your pocket change; we’re not proud.
The big walk is Oct. 30 at Midwestern University, and we’ll be rocking our corsets at 8am right after our big Halloween show – wait’ll they get a load of us!

We are teaming up this year with Indiana cast Help Me Mommy, and we have donations from as far away as Israel, Japan, France and Germany! You can support us with a credit card donation here:

Solidarity with Orlando

We are so sad about the shooting at the Pulse in Orlando.

We’d like to thank our audience for helping us raise $186 to go to The Center on Halsted so we can do a little something for the local LGBTQ community. These are our people and we can’t imagine losing our safe space the way people did in Orlando.

Our awesome audience raised $150 for The Center on Halsted  - we kicked in half of all prop kit sales from 6/18 as well.

We walked. We did Halloween. Now for the rest of the year!

Thanks very much to all our fans who donated and made the Hero for Hope event a huge success!

Our audience, friends and family raised over $5000 for the Family Shelter Service domestic violence shelter! The team won top fundraiser, with Audrey and Ruth netting top individual fundraiser honors, AND three cast members earned medals for their times (about an hour to walk 5K) – Desmond and Dylan won 2nd and 3rd, and Olivia won 2nd in their age divisions!

Thank you to everyone for opening your hearts and wallets. We went right from the 5K into the Halloween season, which was crazy and wonderful and we’re gonna LOVE next year, when Halloween’s on a Saturday! See you at the show…

Fighting domestic violence with the power of Rocky Horror!

It’s 2 days until the Heroes for Hope charity 5K, and with the help of the Rocky Horror community (and our families and friends – hi, Mom!) we have raised nearly $4500 to fight domestic violence. Rocky Horror plays in 32 states in the US – we have donations from 29 of them!

When we wake up Sunday morning to put on our makeup, pull on our fishnets and lace up our shoes, we believe we’ll have $4711 to hand to the fine folks at Family Shelter Service. Thanks to all of you for your help!

If you’d like to donate and you haven’t yet (calling our friends from New Mexico, South Carolina and Tennessee!), you can at http://fss.donorpages.com/HeroforHope2014/CompletelyCrazy/

Next week is October and we’ll be getting ready for Halloween.

Heroes for Hope (in fishnets!) Please help us beat the Girl Scouts!

We’re walking 5K in our Rocky Horror costumes for local domestic violence shelter Family Shelter Services on Sept. 28. We need your help – our goal is $4711! (Want to know why? Take a good look at Frank’s leg when you come see the show Saturday.)

Please bring a little extra cash to the show – we will be collecting for the charity. Every little bit helps, and we love you for it. The shelter is just down the street from our theater. They help thousands of people in our community, and even $5 will fund a child’s breakfast in the shelter. (And we really, really want to be the Girl Scouts team.)
