|THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW|
AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION SCRIPT
Many years ago, Steve Thomas, John Dietsche, and myself were based together at Naval Air Station, South Weymouth, MA. One Saturday night we took a trip to Harvard Square in Boston to see Rocky Horror. Imagine our surprise when nobody else in the theater was yelling at the screen. So here is the audience participation script created by the three of us in 1995, using our combined memories and my laserdisc of the film.
If you see SOMETHING WRITTEN IN LIKE THIS you should yell it at the screen! Getting the timing right is going to take practice, sometimes you're yelling something for the actors to answer, sometimes you are drowning out their words to insert something more fitting.
Feel free to download and use a version of the script for your theater. If you're going to use them for a theater full of people I suggest cutting down the number of calls by a half. Some of the ones here are best yelled by a single person for clarity. My only request that credit is given to the website for providing it. It does differ from the official version, because it was written by a trio of us when we were in our early 20's. If you are looking for the official version, I definitely recommend the DVD, because it has a separate audio track and a subtitle prompter, along with the "Par-Tic-I-Pation Guide" book. Still, the only way to really enjoy this film is to be in a theater filled with veterans who know the calls.
