We suggest you peruse this Audience Props & Etiquette Guide; after all you don’t want to insult visitors.

THROWING RULE
Always throw ... Up and Back! NEVER into the aisles, at the stage or at the screen!
Unless you're in the back row ... then throw up and forward!

BUBBLES
NO Rice!

As with any wedding, when the Bride and Groom leave the Church, blow your bubbles!
You may even want to celebrate with Rocky and Frank at the appropriate time.

Restriction
Sadly we no longer permit the throwing of rice during any performance.
All too often it is thrown into the aisles, at the actors, at the screen and onto the stage.  Have you tried to prance around in six-inch heels or dance on rice?  Yeah, it's realy dangerous and therefore a no-no!

NEWSPAPERS

After leaving their car, Brad and Janet make their way to the castle through a rainstorm …
Janet covers her head with a copy of "The Plain Dealer" newspaper.
You should too … because …

SMALL SQUIRT BOTTLES
WITH WATER ONLY

A few squeezes in the air above your head as Brad and Janet walk through the rain … get it?
Rain … water. (This is why we bring newspapers.)

Restriction
Small squirt bottles may be used because they produce a mist rather than a soaking stream of water.
Again, we do NOT squirt water at other audience members, the screen as this may cause damage, nor do we squirt the performers as this can damage their costumes.

FLASHLIGHTS

When you hear the chorus start singing "there's a light over at the Frankenstein place"
hold-up and wave your flashlights or glow sticks.

Restriction
Common sense should tell you, and if not the Fire Department will, NO open flames will be permitted in the auditorium.  Remember, this will get you ejected from the auditorium. 

RUBBER GLOVES

Each time Frank snaps his rubber gloves; you should snap yours in sync … talk about sound effects!
Please don't snap them at anyone around you; in some galactic cultures it is considered a dire insult.

NOISEMAKERS

At different points of Frank's creation speech the Transylvanians express their approval
and delight with noisemakers and applause.  You should too!

BUBBLES
NO Rice! See above.

As Frank takes Rocky to the honeymoon suite, blow bubbles as you would for any bride and groom!

Restriction
See above.

TOILET TISSUE

When Dr. Scott enters the lab, Brad cries out "Great Scott!"
At this point, you should toss rolls of toilet paper into the air (preferably Scotts).

Restriction
Remember, when we toss ANYTHING, we toss UP and Back!
Do not throw at the screen, into the aisles, or onto the stage.

TOAST

Traditionally, when Frank lifts his ‘glass’ to Rocky’s birthday,
members of the audience would throw dry toast into the air.
We have not been able to come up with a substitute, so we'll skip this one altogether.
Suggestions welcome.

PARTY HAT

When Frank puts on a party hat to celebrate Rocky’s birthday, you should do the same.

BELL

During "Planet Schmanet Janet," ring your bell when Frank sings "Did you hear a bell ring?"

PLAYING CARDS

When you hear Frank sing "Cards for sorrow, cards for pain" during his song “I’m Going Home”,
toss a few playing cards up in the air.

Restriction
Cards are slippery on carpet; do not throw them into the aisles, at the screen or onto the stage.

NO Real HOT DOGS
plastic ones are cool.

At many shows fans will throw hot dogs at the appropriate mention in the film.

Restriction
Absolutely, no hot dogs.
We no longer permit this as some party hounds took the spoilt dogs from their fridge,
dumped them into one of the trash cans and stank up the theatre.
YUCK!  Nasty!

Much like a pocket phrase book you carry when traveling abroad, one should never attend a Transylvanian Convention without their handy dandy Call Back Guide to get you through the evening.

Usually it is considered rude to speak during a movie, but a true RHPS fan knows it considered rude not to speak back to the screen.

In addition, it is important to remember that The Rocky Horror Picture Show has been a universal success for 35 years; and there is always the possiblity, at any screening, that you may find a visitor from the Transexual Galaxy sitting next to you. So do not be surprised at the cultural and generational differences evidenced by a cacophony of call backs. Some Call Backs are out-of-date; some are regional, national or even galactic specific. Do not be concerned or put off. Remember, we are here to celebrate our differences, not to conform!

NOTE: If you have a call back, which is new or different from one of ours; and, if we hear yours and like it, you might just find yours included it in our next guide! So call back proudly!

It is considered rude to shout down another attendee.
