When did you first see Rocky Horror at a theater? I was 17 and saw it at the Crossroads back in the Pink Invaders era. I lied and said I was 18 so I could be sacrificed and lost to an older lady in a lace leotard.

When and why did you join Help Me Mommy? I am one of the original cast. I loved Rocky so much at the Crossroads and begged to join Pink Invaders and got to be Janet during one of the shows the last night it was at the Crossroads. When HMM was forming I was there to support it and I am so proud it is still going strong nearly 5 years later.

Favorite Rocky Horror memory? It’s not so much a memory as what I’ve gained from Rocky Horror. I used to be painfully shy but I loved to perform. Doing Rocky gave me a chance to star in a leading role which boosted my confidence in all areas of my life. I don’t think I would feel as comfortable as I do in my job talking to complete strangers if it weren’t for doing Rocky Horror. Whenever I think about something I have to do for work (eg. make a speech to a whole room of people) I think “Well, you’ve danced around in your underwear and did just fine; you can handle this.”
