The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Flustered Mustard at the Melba

If you’ve been around a bit, you know my love for Rocky Horror Picture Show. I’ve done posts about the Rocky Horror Picture Show Festival as well as Rocky Horror Picture Show at Mineral Area College. I’m even an official member of the Fan Club.

So, of course I jumped at the opportunity to see the Flustered Mustard shadow cast at the Melba for a Midnight showing of RHPS.

The Office! The Musical Parody

Don’t miss this hilarious, unauthorized parody of the hit TV show, “The Office” featuring songs such as “That’s What She

Said,” “Marry Me Beesly,” and more.

It’s a typical morning at Scranton’s third largest paper company until, for no logical reason, a documentary crew begins filming the lives of the employees of Dunder Mifflin. Don’t miss this hilarious, unauthorized parody of your favorite TV show, now coming to a city near you. Mashable calls the show “the world’s most elaborate inside joke, created with a whole lot of love, just for fans.” Original Off-Broadway cast member, Madeline Glenn Thomas, joins the tour cast as everyone’s favorite receptionist, Pam.

The Office! A Musical Parody is now one of the most successful Off-Broadway shows in history. As Michael might say, ‘It’s been a dream come thru.’”

Rocky Horror Picture Show Festival

I’ve had a love for the Rocky Horror Picture Show for longer than I can recall. There’s something about that movie that brings me joy and makes me think of good times with friends: either watching the movie together, or seeing it performed at our local college and everyone dressing up and having a blast. This movie is special to me.

Four years ago, I was lucky enough to meet Barry Bostwick (aka Brad Majors), and he was an ABSOLUTELY funny and sweet guy.

So imagine my joy, and a bit of surprise, when I learned we were having a local RHPS event, held at Alexander’s at the Factort in Farmington, MO?

HHN 26: Updates

I’ve had a lot of things kinda drag me behind lately, so forgive my absence! I’ve missed updating you guys on the rest of the announcements for Halloween Horror Nights Orlando, and with it starting this week, and my own trip beginning next week, I probably need to catch up!

Here’s the rest of the house line up from the official Halloween Horror Nights site:

Shakespeare Festival St Louis 2016

Saturday was a pretty wonderful day, starting with a trip to the Saint Louis Art Museum, and ending with the Shakespeare Festival St Louis presentation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream – which is my favorite Shakespeare play. Since I have quite a bit to write about, I’ll start with the Shakespeare Festival St Louis.

I’ve never gotten to attend a Shakespeare in the park type event even though I’ve really wanted to, so this was my first exposure to this type of event. And I have to say – I cannot wait to go back!

You can pay for a reserved seat, bring a blanket, or go with our option and bring yourself a chair to sit in. We got there around 3 hours before the start of the main event – A Midsummer Night’s Dream – so we had a great chance to pick a shaded spot with a wonderful view.

Best of 2015

There were a lot of ups and downs to 2015. Being unemployed for a few months really ruined some travel plans or me. But there were definitely a lot of great moments over all! I’d like to look back on some of my favorite things of the past year:

SWW1

Ian McDiarmid aka Emperor Palpatine

Star Wars Weekend 2015 at Walt Disney World:

While I fully plan to do an actual full post on the insane coolness which was this event, I do need to spoil it some now. In May last year, we took my nieces for their first ever trip to Disney World and Universal, and strategically planned it so the girls could go for Star Wars Weekends. Well, long story short, my nieces were picked to be in the opening parade, in which they’d be dressed as Jedi Padawans and given lightsabers and some quick training from the Jedi Academy, before leading the celebrity guests in that were riding in the parade. And they needed two adults to walk the parade with the girls… I WALKED IN THE STAR WARS PARADE WITH EMPEROR PALPATINE!

Marvel Universe Live

Sunday was a fun-filled day of adventuring to St Louis for a few reasons. The first reason I’m covering is for the show Marvel Universe Live!

Here’s the trailer:

Marvel Universe Live is essentially a family friendly stunt show with a story line that involves more than 25 Marvel heroes and villains. I’ve been waiting for this tour to come through St Louis for well over a year now. I heard of it some time after the unfortunate end to Batman Live! (these two shows are not, from what I understand, connected to each other in any way in terms of companies), and decided since I loved Batman Live! so much, I’d definitely check this one out. It’s a similar premise – a super hero stunt show – and it was coming somewhere within a reasonable driving distance. I bought tickets a few weeks ago for myself, my nieces, and my mom and brother.
