When & where did you first see TRHPS?: March of 1987 at the Graceland Cinema in Columbus, OH
When did you join Simply His Servants?: I started performing at the Cedar Lee in 1993, the cast at the time had no name and no organization whatsoever. I was one of the founding members of Simply His Servants, which was formed in 1994. SHS set a new standard and redefined the Cleveland Rocky Horror experience by presenting a more organized, practiced, and distinguished show. In the years since we have been recognized and awarded by The Plain Dealer, Scene Magazine and Cleveland Magazine.
Characters played: Everyone but Rocky Horror and Columbia, and I'd prefer to keep it that way. My performing days are long gone, but every now and then I'll hop into a part if we're really REALLY in need of a role to be filled.
Approximate number of times you've seen TRHPS: I have no clue, I lost count sometime in the early 90's.
Approximate number of times you've performed TRHPS: I couldn't even guess......I've been performing for almost 18 years, so it's safe to say A LOT
