Summer is finally turning into fall – we love corset and stocking weather! Come join us, wish our college-bound members luck, and join us in the countdowns to Halloween and our annual 5K costumed walk against domestic violence!
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!
Next week is October and we’ll be getting ready for Halloween.
First, we’d like to thank all of our friends from:
The Heroes for Hope charity 5K is Sept. 28 at Downers Grove North (go Trojans!). Meet us there before the walk starts at 8:15! We’ve raised more than $4,000 so far, with help from our friends, family and fellow Rocky fans!
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.)
Or at least we hear they will on Saturday, Oct 12, at Hollywood Blvd!
Come see us – we’ve heard your brains are delicious!
In other news, THIS:
Google “Rocky Horror” + Charity.
Look at the top two results – we’ve been in the #1 or #2 spot for 2 weeks now! $3600 plus raised so far, with 3 weeks to go! Please help us reach $4711 by donating at the show or here: http://fss.donorpages.com/HeroforHope2013/CompletelyCrazy/ . We’ll post lots of pictures of us walking 5K in our Rocky costumes for YOU, our fabulous audience, and for local women’s shelter Family Shelter Service!
So far, Completely Crazy is the top fundraising team in the “Heroes for Hope” costumed 5K walk against domestic violence – AND the top four fundraisers are all from our team too! (Check out Frank N Furter’s page at http://fss.donorpages.com/HeroforHope2013/FrankNFurter/ – this is where we record all the cash donations that go to the cast as a whole.) Take that, Girl Scouts!
We’ve done this because of you, our Rocky Horror audience, and because of support from our Rocky Horror family – local casts from Milwaukee, Indiana, Chicago, DeKalb and Michigan, and fans from California to Rhode Island, even the UK and Australia, have come together to show that Rocky Horror people are amazing, raising more than $2600 so far with five weeks to go! We are $700 from breaking our record of $3310 raised last year, and more than halfway to our goal of $4711. Makes you proud to slut around in your fishnets, doesn’t it?
Remember to get to the Hollywood Blvd early this Saturday (or buy your ticket in advance) – the show will probably sell out!
This Sunday, we’re doing the 5K walk for the Run For Her Life to raise money for Family Shelter Service – we’ve raised $2100+ and need to get to $2500. Please help by donating at our fundraising page if you can. Bring your pennies to the show (last collection this Saturday!) and tell your Mom she should donate too – we did!
Here’s the casting for Saturday. Word is there may be a preshow too…see you there!

October, we love you! We nearly sold out tonight (200+ people!), and on October 27 at Hollywood Blvd, as part of our big Halloween blowout we will have TWO theaters with casts performing the film simultaneously! Warm up for that with Rocky at the Arcada in St. Charles Friday, Oct. 26…then come back for more on Oct. 31, where Rocky Horror will cap the Arcada’s big Halloween party (the Genitorturers will be there!).
Oct. 21, next Sunday, we will be raising awareness of Rocky Horror and raising money for Family Shelter Service by walking 5K in costume after putting on another kickass October show for you – thank you to our amazing, wonderful, we-love-you audience for contributing $140+ at the show. We’re gonna try to break $2000 raised- please help by donating on-line at our fundraising page if you can. $2, $5, whatever you can. Thanks!
When our audience at Hollywood Blvd. raised $91 last week for Family Shelter Service, including $50 from one very generous (if slightly embarrassed) gentleman, we were impressed.
So we asked you to beat that total this week. And did you. You guys donated more than $123 to the cause on Saturday. And we know most of you are poor-ass broke, so we are doubly grateful.
We will sweat our asses off for you as we strut through Downers Grove in our fishnets on Oct. 21 at the Run For Her Life 5K fundraiser. By then we expect to have raised $1000 to support Family Shelter Service’s work in our area – thanks to you. We love you!
