Painted Perversion/The Rocky Horror Picture Show W/Special Guest

Hello fellow Transylvanians, Rocky Virgins and Worshipers of D.C.,

Hope each and every one of you enjoyed the holidays. It is a new year and Rocky Horror/Painted Perversion is celebrating this year with new and exciting pre-shows and contests. But we can't do Rocky Horror without your support. As it stands right now, this maybe the last Rocky Horror to ever grace the Michigan Theatre stage. We need at least 100 fans to attend and show your support. Otherwise, Painted Perversion and Rocky Horror will vanish from the history books as we know it. SO, invite your friends; invite your family; invite people off the street and come show the Michigan Theatre that Rocky Horror and Painted Perversion will be around for a long time from now. That said, onto the info you will need to know.

This month, Painted Perversion is proud to have as our guest Wednesday Lee Friday. Wednesday is an accomplished horror writer with astonishing tales of murder, pain, and pleasure (for more info, please visit her website at http://www.wednesdayleefriday.com/). Wednesday will be on hand for an evening of Q/A and book signing (she will even amaze us by reading an excerpt from some of her books). If you are fans of Wednesday, then you know this is an opportunity not to miss. And if your not, come see why you should be fans of hers. You get all this and of course.......

Painted Perversion proudly presents The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Michigan Theatre in Downtown Jackson, Michigan. Be sure to come early to experience our unusual and entertaining Pre-Shows. Drag Racing Returns in a whole new way!! Come dressed in DRAG (men and women) and challenge our #1 Drag Racer to a race!! Also, the costume contest returns. For this month, come dressed as your Favorite RHPS character and win a prize (1st prize is a set of passes from the Michigan Theatre; 2nd prize is a "one of a kind" Painted Perversion panty signed by the entire cast).

Show date is March 27th, 2010 at 11:00 PM. Since the doors will open at 10PM, Wednesday will be doing Q/A from 10:30-11:00PM and then the book signing begins at 11:00PM (with pre-show to follow). Tickets are $10 per person (the updated price is for the cleaning and maintenance of the theatre, not our idea; but we understand the need for a cleaning crew). For that classic Rocky experience, audience participation prop bags will be free for every person with a paid admission. With that in mind; OPEN FLAMES, outside props, outside food/drink; will NOT be allowed at the theatre. This is a Rated R movie. 17 and up can get in to see the movie. Anyone younger than 17 can get in with parent or guardian who is 17 or older. IDs will be checked at the door, so please bring them if you want to get in. The Michigan Theatre is located at 124 N. Mechanic Street Jackson, MI 49201. Free parking is available north, south, and west of the Michigan Theatre. So, if you are in Jackson (or just want more information), just call (517) 780-3255 for advanced "Rocky Horror" tickets (please leave a message).

Added for the new year is the Michigan Theatre bar. That's right, the Michigan Theatre is now offering alcohol for those of you that can legally drink the night of Rocky Horror. For more information, please call the Michigan Theatre at (517) 783-0962.

For those of you who know of D.C. (you have seen him and his full glory), he returns once again to the delight of our fans and the giggling of the VIRGINS!!!! And if you have already seen our show, you know why you need to see it again!! So, spread the word and come do the Time Warp with us again!! If you saw our last show, Virgin Torture returns for another engagement this show. So, bring a Rocky virgin; they will leave wanting more.

PAINTED PERVERSION MERCHANDISE NOW FOR SALE!!!! T-shirts, panties, and buttons; OH MY!!! With Painted Perversion's very own logo; so that you may proudly display that you were "Painted" by the "Perversion". Please help keep Rocky Horror alive in Jackson.

Painted Perversion Proudly Presents Repo! The Genetic Opera Road Tour III!!

TESTIFY!!

Painted Perversion, Michigan's only continuing montly Rocky Horror Picture Show shadowcast proudly presents (in conjunction with Repo! Road Tour III) Repo! The Genetic Opera. Here is the official press release:

"REPO! ROAD TOUR 3 SET TO KICK OFF JANUARY 13



“I think that the REPO! Road Tour must be seen to be believed. REPO! has inspired a community, and that community shows up in force on the road tour to bond, sing, and show off their fan-made REPO! costumes and props. I imagine this is what being there on the ground floor of The Rocky Horror Picture Show experience 33 years ago must have been like.” Stated Terrance Zdunich Actor/Co Creator.



The third and FINAL leg of the REPO! Road Tour is primed and ready to kick off January 13, 2009. Director Darren Bousman and actor/writer Terrance Zdunich will be heading out across the country to promote their film, REPO! The Genetic Opera. In anticipation of the dual release of the extended Soundtrack and the DVD on January 20th, Bousman and Zdunich will be taking over independent theaters and screening the film for fans in-person. The REPO! Road Tour is for fans to come out and be a part of the event together. Each city has put its own spin on the event, from fans dressing up as characters to theater-wide sing-a-longs, and more!



With sellouts on the first two REPO! Road Tours, Bousman and Zdunich look to repeat their success. Tickets are $15 and are on-sale Monday, December 29, at www.reporoadtour.com. The event WILL sell-out, so make sure to buy yours early! Recently on REPO! Road Tour I and II, several cast members have joined the tour in select cities including Paul Sorvino, Alexa Vega and Bill Moseley, as well as co-writer and band leader Darren Smith, so to all REPO! Fans; be prepared for special guests!



Bousman commented on the upcoming tour: “The REPO! Road Tour has become the single most important aspect of REPO. You haven't seen REPO until you have seen it with a packed house of dressed-up people singing with the movie. The Road Tour truly has turned into an event. It's like a concert. Every single show we have done thus far has been sold out. With lines wrapping around the block, the fan reaction is amazing.”



For the fans: REPO! Road Tour includes an introduction to the film by Bousman and Zdunich, a screening of REPO! The Genetic Opera, as well as a post-film Q&A session and autograph session with the filmmakers and Actors, and a chance to purchase exclusive REPO! Road Tour merchandise.

Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GENECO, a biotech company that offers organ transplants...for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by THE REPO MAN. By fusing ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW and BLADE RUNNER, this futuristic tale of horror modernizes the “rock opera” genre with original music and rich, dark production design. This rock opera boasts an entirely original soundtrack that blends equal parts goth and punk rock to form an eerie and powerful musical narrative and features vocal performances by an amazing cast; Paris Hilton, Bill Moseley, Sarah Brightman, Anthony Stewart Head, Alexa Vega, Paul Sorvino, Ohgr and more. Instrumentals and score provided by an all-star lineup that features performances from Joan Jett( who cameos in the film), Richard Patrick (Filter), Stephen Perkins (Jane's Addiction), Clown (Slipknot), Ray Luzier (Army of Anyone), Brian Young (David Lee Roth's band), Sonny Moore (From First to Last), Richard Fortus (Guns & Roses), David J (Bauhaus/Love & Rockets), Daniel Ash (Love & Rockets), Blasko (Ozzy Osbourne), Tommy Clefetus (Rob Zombie's band), Melora Creager (Rasputina).
