Rocky Horror Ringer Show In Portland

July 4, 2003 at 12:56 pm by Demosthenes  - 

Orangeblossom from BitofEarth.net sends along this announcement of a Rocky Horror-style showing of Two Towers in the Portland area on July 5. If you’re a fan of MST3k-ing and Rocky Horror – and LoTR – this could be a great night out for you!

BitofEarth.net, the website that brought you the Long Expected Party and Project Elanor, is putting on a fundraising event like no other. The Rocky Horror Ringer show is a fun, quirky, irreverent showing of The Two Towers with a twist, perfect for all those Northwest Rings fans who are tired of being told to sit down, shut up, and keep their hairy feet to themselves during their favourite movie.

What: An MST3K/Rocky Horror-style showing of the movie where everyone is free to snark, plus a variety of other cool events including an Emcee, a lowest-bidder Minion Auction, a Costume Contest (for best AND worst costumes), a Virgin Call, and a Live-Cast performance of selected scenes.

Where: The Avalon Theatre, 3451 SE Belmont St., Portland, Oregon

When: 8:30-Midnight, July 5

Who: Up to 65* Hobbits, Dwarves, Men, Elves, Ents, Dark Forces, and yes, even dates.

Why: A fundraiser for the December LotR convention TentMoot 2003

How Much: $10, includes movie ticket

How To Buy Tickets: Payment may be mailed or brought in person (checks or money order made out to Bit of Earth, cash also acceptable) to 9629 SE 43rd Ave Milwaukie, OR 97222 prior to Wednesday, July 2. After that, tickets may be purchased at the door on the night of the event. First come first serve, no reserve tickets, NO EXCEPTIONS. Please call 503-353-3095 with any questions.

BitofEarth is also putting out a casting call for anyone interested in participating in the live-cast performance. Actors must have no shame, supply their own costumes and transportation, and be willing to come to a rehearsal on the evening of the 3rd, exact time to be decided dependant on the schedules of whoever winds up offering to come make fools of themselves. Actors may be male or female, age 13 to Immortal. Resemblance is a plus, but takes a distant second place to willingness to have fun!

WE NEED:
Gimli
Legolas
Aragorn
Sam

IT WOULD BE COOL IF WE COULD GET:
Gandalf
Pippin

DON’T BOTHER, WE ALREADY HAVE A:
Eowyn
Frodo
