25th Anniversary in Vegas Photo Album -- Page Three
It's time to play the music... It's time to light the lights...
Viva Las Vegas!! [ Page One | Page Two | Page Three | Page Four | Page Five | Page Six | Page Seven | Page Eight | Page Nine | Page Ten ]
These photos were taken at the convention for the 25th Anniversary of the Rocky
Horror Picture Show, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, in October 2000. Some were
taken on my camera (usually by me), a few were taken by Kristin Howe on a couple
of disposable cameras, and the rest were taken on Jeff Baker's new digital
camera. Page Ten has frames captured from VH-1's
coverage of the Con. As always, I suck at remembering names and placing them to
faces; so if any captions need to be added or corrected, just email me. (These
pages were designed under 1024x768 resolution.)

Unfortunately, I never got a copy of the program, or else matching casts to
preshows would be a LOT easier. At least I got to see most of them; I only
missed the first (Lip's),
because I was in the lobby and didn't realize they'd already started the
preshows, and a few near the end (before and after the one
I was in).
This was the first preshow I saw (#2), "Time Warpin'" by Midnight Madness.
On the left are Dr. Scott's Extra
Forks from Scotland, doing a sketch about Magenta and Columbia as old
friends, many years later ("Bosom Buddies", from Mame) On the right, an
Austin Powers pre-show by Charming Underclothes...
Quad leads as Frank and Ron Maxwell leads the Elvi during The New York City Cast's fabulous
Preshow In Three Parts...
Left: My personal favorite, the performance that had me laughing and cheering
so hard it hurt, was Transvestite Soup's complete
retelling of the Rocky Horror story using clips from "Weird Al"
Right: Permanent Record Cast (not the people who did that CD) doing "Not So
Proud Mary". And there's Fred on the tamborine.
"Fag Club", a Fight
Club parody, by A Jump To The
Broadway Bound And Gagged did "It Could Have Happened", asking "What if Richard
O'Brien had directed other popular movies?" (I think they meant "written",
Sharman directed Rocky). Variations on Being John Malovich,
A couple of Cats and other wildlife from Sins O' The Flesh's winning Andrew
Lloyd Weber preshow.
