I am possessed.
My life has been taken over.
If you are reading this, do not be alarmed. The Laura that you know and tolerate will be returned to you. But not until after Halloween.
Until then, I live, breathe, eat, sweat and sleep Rocky Horror.
Ok, maybe I’m being a little over-dramatic. But we’re seriously into the Rocky process. We’ve got the venue, the rights permission (that we’ll have to pay for), the auditioners, some band and crew candidates, fundraising plans, a bank account, incorporation materials, mailing lists, promotional work, and a very promising studio/rehearsal space. It looks like this is going to happen, and dammit, we’re going to make it fabulous.
There’s a lot of work to do, though. I sent in the Articles of Incorporation for our company yesterday, and we have to hear back from the Secretary of State, get an Employer Identification Number, and ultimately complete the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit tax-exemption forms. We have to cast the show, get a band, and get money get paid. We have to promote the heck out of the show and throw an awesome Halloween party. I’m pretty sure we can do all of these things, and do them well. It’s worth sacrificing my free time if we can offer Chicago a new, hopefully-to-be-annual Halloween tradition.
Just sayin’, I might end up writing a lot about the show. So get ready for some Rocky Horror Show Overshare. As I’m sure Frank would say, why show a little when you can show a lot?
It’ll keep me much happier and saner than listening to Dan Brown’s audiobooks has.
