There's a light!  
Troubled?  Depressed?  Addicted?  Just need a place to vent about your lousy day?  No matter what your problem may be, SHE'S SEEN IT!

More caring than a civilized West Virginian!

While I've heard in the past about portions of the Rocky Horror community reaching out to the safety and well-being of the public, there doesn't seem to be anything of that nature on Facebook.  So, I've started "Columbia Cares," a community outreach group intended as a means for Rocky Horror fans to provide support, advice and much-needed answers to the Facebook community at large. 

The idea for this group was fueled primarily by one Rocky performer's comment that a RHPS performance should be a safe environment for everyone.  (I believe this was stated in "A Regular Frankie Fan," but I've forgotten who said it.)  My goal is to spread that credo beyond the boundaries of a theater, and show anyone seeking tolerance and understanding, Rocky fan or otherwise, that Rocky Horror fans are known for both.  While scattered casts may have suicide hotlines and things of that nature, I would like to see that willingness to help the public spread to the entire fan base.

Posts will be moderated in order to keep Columbia Cares as much of a safe, comfortable environment as possible.  No insults, attacks or discrimination will be tolerated.  And of course, this castle will turn no one away!

The group can be found here...

As this blog likely only reaches a small audience, that's all the more reason for more people to help out!  Richard, Pat, Nell, and many others connected to Rocky have opened their hearts to their public over the years; let's show them that we can do the same.

RHPS still playing?
Hello! I'm relatively new to the Pittsburgh area and was wondering if Rocky is still playing at the Hollywood in Dormont. I don't check in on LJ much, but please feel free to email me at MWFerrets@yahoo.com.

Thanks a lot!

Re: RHPS still playing?
No, the Hollywood shut down a couple months ago.

The only Rocky planned at the moment is at the Oaks in Oakmont, on July 30th.

Ah, it's a shame that the Hollywood shut down! Ok, well Oakmont is easier for me to get to anyway. :-) Is this a regular thing, or just a special showing?

Thanks for the quick response!

Re: RHPS still playing?
As far as I know, this is just a special showing.

Hopefully that will change in the future, though.
