2nd Community Collection Event

2nd Community Collection Event

Saturday, May 20 12:00 – 6:00 pm Rear of Theatre

Our E waste collection event on EARTH DAY was an unqualified success! We filled our first bin and now have another bin to fill!  We are collecting Electronic Waste to raise funds to replace our Aron’s roof.

Unwanted electronics shouldn’t end up in landfills. Most of the parts—steel, glass, copper, aluminum, plastics and precious metals—can be recovered and made into new products or resources. To divert substances of concern from our landfills, the Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES), encourages responsible and safe recycling of out-of-use electronics. The program now collects 44 types of electronics.

WHAT’S ACCEPTED?

  • Printing, Copying & Multifunction Devices
  • Home Theatre Equipment, Equalizers, Amplifiers, Speakers, Tuners & Turntables
  • Cellular Devices & Pagers
  • Computer Peripherals
  • Telephone & Telephone Answering Machines
  • Desktop Computers, Portable Computers
  • Monitors & Televisions
  • Aftermarket Vehicle Audio & Video Devices
  • Personal / Portable Image, Audio and Video Devices
  • Home / Non-Portable Image, Audio and Video Devices

To date, Ontarians have helped OES divert more than 260,000 tonnes of electronic waste from landfills. Stacked end-to-end in tractor trailers, it would stretch north from Toronto to Elliot Lake. Piled one on top of the other, those trailers would match the height of 1016 CN Towers.

Recycling electronics through OES is regulated to rigorous environmental standards; keeping substances of concern—lead, cadmium, beryllium, mercury, brominated flame retardants—out of landfills, protecting our waterways, roadways and natural environments.

A VIRGIN’S GUIDE to participating in RHPS – adapted from RHPS Official Fan Site

VIRGIN – In the common world, this usually refers to a person who has not engaged in sexual relations. In the ROCKY HORROR world, this word refers to the many unfortunate people who have never experienced THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (RHPS) in a theatre with a participating audience. Seeing it on home video or on TV doesn’t count!

You are reading this because you are hopefully going to consider attending the showing of Rocky Horror at the Aron.

If you’ve already seen the movie by itself on TV or home video and wondered what all the fuss was about, read on. If you haven’t seen the movie on TV or home video – GREAT! The more surprised you are on your first time, the more fun it is.

Rocky Horror is the first and only true audience partici-(SAY IT!)-pation movie. People yell back lines at the screen during the extended pauses between dialogue, dress up in costume and act out the film, and throw props various times during the film. The audience participation phenomenon was observed as early as the film’s first run in 1975 (when it bombed during limited engagements in 7 of 8 cities), and was later re-released as a midnight movie where the audience participation really began to flourish. And by the way, for the “gore sensitive”, Rocky Horror is NOT a horror film. It is a rock-musical send-up of old science-fiction and horror films.

Enough history! You are interested in going, so here’s what you really need to know.

First, the only thing you really need to bring your first time out in order to have fun is a sense of humour. Of course, being surrounded by 10-15 of your friends is also a good thing. You should dress in whatever makes YOU feel comfortable, but also does not violate any local standards (this usually means nudity is out.) Speaking of violating laws and norms of society, it is best to go to RHPS sober. Not only will you be more in-tune to pick up all the clever things going on around you, the theatre will not admit those people who look drunk.

But hey, what about the props and audience participation lines and dressing up in costume? Well, no one expects you to know much of anything your first time out. While audience participation is mandatory to keep the show alive, it is not mandatory that everyone participate, every time. Virgins are not expected to know a damn thing.

If you want to bring props, check our PROP LIST. The safest ones to bring are rice (NO confetti please), toast (unbuttered), toilet paper and a deck of cards. Watch everyone else to figure out when to throw these items.

Hmmmm… sounds interesting. I am not going to be targeted for some humiliation because I am a virgin, right? NO. Since at any one time, an audience can consist of 25%-50% virgins, all audience members should follow ROCKY HORROR ETIQUETTE

Now get off your butt, come see RHPS. REMEMBER: Rocky Horror is like sex, you can only have one first time so make the most of it.

PROP LIST – adapted from RHPS Official Fan Site

Here is a basic list of props and instructions for their use in participation to RHPS.
________________________________
Rice: At the beginning of the film is the wedding of Ralph Hapschatt and Betty Munroe. As the newlyweds exit the church, you should throw the rice along with the on-screen wedding guests.
________________________________
Newspapers: When Brad and Janet are caught in the storm, Janet covers her head with a newspaper The “Plain Dealer”. At this point, you should likewise cover your head.
________________________________
Water, Water pistols, etc: Please do not use .
________________________________
Flashlights, phones, LEDs: During the “There’s a light” verse of “Over at the Frankenstein Place, “you should light up the theatre with flashlights, phones, etc. ABSOLUTELY NO lighters, candles, open flames of any kind permitted.
________________________________
Rubber gloves: During and after the creation speech, Frank snaps his rubber gloves three times. Later, Magenta pulls these gloves off his hands. You should snap your gloves in sync each time to create a fantastic sound effect.
________________________________
Noisemakers: At the end of the creation speech, the Transylvanians respond with applause and noisemakers. You should do the same.
________________________________
Confetti (PLEASE use Rice instead): At the end of the “Charles Atlas Song” reprise, the Transylvanians throw confetti as Rocky and Frank head toward the bedroom. You should do the same.
________________________________
Toilet paper: When Dr. Scott enters the lab, Brad cries out “Great Scott!” At this point, you should hurl rolls of toilet paper into the air (preferably Scotts).
________________________________
Toast (unbuttered only): When Frank proposes a toast at dinner, members of the audience throw toast into the air.
________________________________
Party hat: At the dinner table, when Frank puts on a party hat, you should do the same.
________________________________
Bell: During the song “Planet Schmanet Janet,” ring the bell when Frank sings “Did you hear a bell ring?”
________________________________
Cards: During the song “I’m Going Home,” Frank sings “Cards for sorrow, cards for pain”. At this point you should shower the theatre with cards.
________________________________

PLEASE DO NOT THROW ANY ITEMS AT THE SCREEN! IT CAN EASILY BE DAMAGED.

ROCKY HORROR ETIQUETTE – adapted from RHPS Official Fan Site

The difference between a true RHPS fan and someone just out for a rowdy time can be seen in their manners and etiquette. Here are some guidelines that should be deemed necessary by anyone looking to perpetuate our experiences of absolute pleasure.

The throwing of rice, toilet paper, etc. is part of the fun. It is not meant to harm people, ruin someone’s make-up or costume, or cause damage to the theatre.

Never make fun of someone for “dressing up” – especially if their costume or make-up is not exact. The point is that their heart is in it and this might discourage them or others from ever returning in costume and that’s what this is all about.

If you portray a certain character, don’t get upset or jealous if someone else comes dressed as that character. Remember that the movie and its characters are not your exclusive property.

Respect the wishes of the theatre and its management. Vandalism and the breaking of rules will lead to your ejection.

Help other audience members to get the most out of their RHPS experience and “Be part of the fun!”
