Audiences LOVE Rocky Horror!

At long last, here are some photos of various audience members who showed up in costume for The Rocky Horror Show.

 This is Roxanna Camargo's sister. (Right, Roxy?)

 Partygoers!


 Identical costume to Daniel Sosa-Porter's.
 This couple went all out.


The winner was Luis Olvera! Luis has taken classes in Drama and while he's a nursing major, he just can't resist the lure of Frank 'N' Furter. (I'm told he went ALL out ... if you get my drift ...)

Even the directors got in on the act. Here's Choreographer Kristin Arcidiacono, doing her best Columbia.
 Director Katie Rodda went tame, opting for Janet.
A great experience overall!

KCACTF Respondent Gerilyn Brault comes to see Rocky Horror

On April 21, MiraCosta College instructor Gerilyn Brault came to a performance of Rocky Horror and gave feedback to the cast and crew as part of our participation in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. Here are a few pictures of the event:


Here are actors (still in makeup) listening to her comments. (Thanks, Christian and Vanessa, for taking care of McKenna's mic!)

Following this performance, Gerilyn nominated Tyra Carter and Devin McKenna for the Irene Ryan acting scholarship as part of KCACTF. They join Lizette Hernandez and Sofia Patricia Palacios from the New Play Festival in this achievement.

Congratulations, everyone!!
