Information about the Virgin Survival Kit
Your first “Don’t Look Like A Virgin” Pro-Tip: DO NOT throw stuff at the screen – that’s just way NOT cool. This is the holiest of holy rules and the one that will get you ejected, will not tolerate any behavior that could damage property.
Our Audience is welcome to build their own kits and bring them in, but bear in mind we’ll poke through your bag and anything that we don’t let in will be given to hungry college students at Williams& Mary. We don’t care how traditional you think it is to throw a hotdog in a movie theater, take your pocket dog somewhere else.
SO! What’s in the bag??
A Card Explaining All This Stuff
We don’t expect you to remember all this or have the foresight to print this page, so we made these handy cards that come with the kits that explain everything!
When to use: During the song Science Fiction Double Feature, then immediately after “When Worlds Collide” is mentioned – pop the balloon.
When to use: During the song “There’s a Light (Over at the Frankenstein Place)”, while the ‘There’s a Light’ chorus is playing. (Transylvania may not have a fire code, but Chicago does).
Don’t Look Like A Virgin Pro-Tip: Only hold up and wave the light stick during the actual chorus, when they say “in the darkness”, lower/conceal it. You may also use flashlights or your cell phone.
How to Time Warp Flier
When to use: During Time Warp!
When to use: During Frank’s speech at the tank when he puts on the gloves, stretch and snaps yours.
When to use: During the “Lab” scene, when the Transylvanian Guests use their noisemakers.
When to use: When Dr. Scott makes his entrance and Brad exclaims “Great Scott!”. Remember: if you’re in the front you throw back. If you’re in the back you throw up. Do not throw shit at the screen or into the trees
(2 confetti streamer poppers are included with the kit)
When to use: One during the wedding in lieu of rice, one at the end of the “Lab” scene when the wedding march is being played and guests are throwing confett
When to use: During dinner, Frank will put on his party hat, and you should too – it’s a PARTY now!
When to use: When Frank pulls the table cloth off the dinner table.
When to use: When Columbia is doing her “bitch out” speech and says to Frank, “you’re like a sponge!”
When to use: After floor show, when Frank is doing his solo number and sits down and sings the line “cards for sorrow, cards for pain”.
Used during the song “There’s a Light (Over at the Frankenstein Place)”, while they are walking through the rain, you spray your watergun at everyone next to you and make some new enemies.
When to use: When Frank is chasing Janet after dinner and asks the musical question “did you hear a bell ring?” during the song “Planet Schmanet”
Don’t Look Like A Virgin Pro-Tip: A bell is preferred, but your keys work too!
Items that you may remember from that time you went to Rocky Horror in 1982, but we DO NOT have in our kits and DO NOT ALLOW at our show:
We include an extra confetti popper to use instead.
Used at the beginning of the film when the wedding guests exit the church. Kit buyers can use one of the confetti poppers included in the kit at this time. Rice is very difficult to clean up and makes the floor extremely slippery for the performers and can attract rodents and such if not completely cleaned up.
Hot Dog and Prunes
No, NO, NO!
It has happened, on occasion, where people use these items during their mention at the times in the film – we do not allow these, or anything else that spoils, in the theater and they will be confiscated during door search.
Again, small pieces of food are hard to clean and attract rodents. Usually used during/ after Frank is done carving, he will lift his class and proclaim “a toast.”
