SKRIBBL3Z is one of Help Me Mommy’s newest crew members—and possibly a future performer. The first time he saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show—ever—was at the Art Theatre at the first Help Me Mommy performance in 2008, which he refers to as the “best night ever.”
He loves “everything!” about being part of the Rocky Horror community. “It’s opened me up to so many wonderful people and made me learn a lot about myself,” he explained.
“I am honored to be part of this cast. It started as a dream but turned into the most wonderful experience of my life so far,” SKRIBBL3Z explained.
A machinist by trade, SKRIBBL3Z enjoys cars—“anything mechanical, really”—as well as archery and scale models. His favorite colors are blue, black, and grey. Mellowcream pumpkins (also known as candy corn) is his favorite candy.
An enthusiast of the television programs Wolf’s Rain, Deathnote, and Full Metal Alchemist, SKRIBBL3Z’s favorite movies are Silent Hill (the first one) and The Untouchables.
Borrowing a line from the film, SKRIBBL3Z sums it up best by saying, “Remember—don’t dream it, be it!”
A FILM BY JIM SHARMAN (1975, 100 minutes)
STARRING TIM CURRY, SUSAN SARANDON, RICHARD O’BRIEN, CHARLES GRAY, MEATLOAF, BARRY BOSTWICK
In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon), stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite scientist. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker (Meat Loaf) and a creepy butler (Richard O’Brien). Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”
Alice first saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show circa 2008—and it was really The Rocky Horror Show, performed as a musical theatre performance by a semi-professional cast. Six months later, her son (Randy) introduced her to the film itself on DVD. It wasn’t until January 2010 that she saw a live shadowcast perform the show when viewing Completely Crazy in IL.
She grew up during the time it first became popular—in the 1970s—but had never seen the film. Introduced to the experience, Alice was pleasantly confused. “My first thoughts were ‘this is weird, interesting, and fun all rolled into one.’ I wasn’t sure what to look at: the movie or the actors. I was kind of overwhelmed at first, but the more the night went on, the more fun I had,” she explained.
Her favorite character is Columbia, especially her personal floor show—which is also Alice’s favorite scene. Columbia is “colorful, quirky, and fun,” Alice noted. Her favorite audience participation line, however, is “what’s that smell; cover it up” (yelled to Janet, during her personal floor show). She also enjoys the line to the Criminologist about the “diabolical chicken” on his forehead.
“Help Me Mommy is a great cast. They really give their audience a fun-filled night,” Alice stated. She loves Kung Fu night “it’s a LOT of fun and very unique,” Alice noted. She continued, “The dance parties are always a blast. I’m really looking forward to pajama night, which is coming next month [in April]. Help Me Mommy has the best theme nights I’ve had the pleasure to attend.”
While she may have arrived late to the Rocky Horror party, she doesn’t intend to leave early. “I will always be a fan of Rocky Horror, and Help Me Mommy has a special place in my heart,” Alice explained.
“If it weren’t for my son introducing me to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, I might not have ever seen it—and, in turn, I never may have met such a wonderful group of people who are like ‘family’ throughout the entire Rocky community. They gave me the strength I needed to turn my life around for the better. Yes, Rocky Horror definitely saved my life,” Alice concluded, referencing the documentary in progress, Rocky Horror Saved My Life, which filmed at the Hobart show—as well as many other venues, internationally—in 2014.

Hello, Kristen here! I’m in the process of changing some things around on the website, and in general updating a bit here and there. I’m not changing the layout, but you’ll find all the navigation (soon) along the bar on the upper part of the website. I’ll also be adding photos to new galleries, which will include fabulous pictures from our regular performances, theme nights, outside shows, and also adding in a separate page for videos.

Are you interested in hiring Help Me Mommy to perform at your venue? While we perform every Saturday night at The Art Theatre in Hobart, Indiana, we are also always looking for new opportunities to perform special single shows elsewhere, especially during the month of October. Help Me Mommy has performed on a weekly basis at The Art Theatre since 2008. The cast has also performed 5 years in a row at the Legends sports bar & entertainment facility on the Notre Dame campus, as well as on the Grid Iron and at The State Theater in South Bend, Indiana. Several of our cast members have also performed during The Rocky Horror Picture Show during the annual RHPS conventions.
Not only are we interested in performing special shows outside of our normal theater, we are also interested in performing at various types of conventions and other non-traditional venues. If you are interested, you can contact us via our online contact form, or you can simply e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to hear from you soon!
