I was a pre-teen when I first heard of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. My sister Colette had long been into the cult movie craze and as the curious little girl that I was, I followed along. My sister even convinced the principle at Palm Desert Middle School to let her teach the "Time Warp" to all of my classmates during P.E. class one day. It was a great success! I'm sure todays parents would not allow such a thing to occur knowing the premise of the film, but this was in the early 80's, and how happy I am that I grew up back then.
I quickly became a fan of the film, learning every song on the sound track, singing and dancing with zeal every time I'd hear it, and with my sister in the house, it was alot. The Rocky Horror Picture Show debuted in 1975. The creation came from Richard O'Brien and starred Tim Curry, Susan Sarrandon and Barry Boswick among the other talented cast. It has been hailed the longest running film musical ever.
