The Midnight Madness "Virgin Kit"

main kit

The Midnight Madness Virgin Kit (or "prop kit", "throw bag", "shit to throw", etc.) contains a large portion of the things you need to use and throw at a Rocky Horror showing. This page goes into detail about what's included in the kit and what restrictions we have on what you can use and what quantity.

We sell the kits at The Music Box
The kits are 3 dollars each.

We usually do not get paid for performing, and 100% of the proceeds from kit sales go back to cast costumes, props, promotions, kit supplies, etc. Other than straight up donations this is how Midnight Madness gets our money to run.

So, what's in the $3 bag, babay?
Balloon, Glow Stick, Time Warp Flier, Rubber Glove, Noisemaker, Confetti Poppers, Toilet Paper, Party Hat, Sponge, Paper Plates, Cards, Instructions, Bag.

Audience Prop Item Details
Don't Look Like A Virgin Pro-Tip: DO NOT throw shit at the screen - that's just way NOT cool (and we will have you arrested for destruction of property if you do).

balloon

 

Balloon
In the kit? Yes (1 qty)
Is it allowed? : Yes at The Music Box
When to use: During the song Science Fiction Double Feature, the move When Worlds Collide is mentioned - pop the balloon at this time.

Rice
In the kit? No
Is it allowed? No - Not included in the kit and not allowed at The Music Box
When to use: At the beginning of the film when the wedding guests exit the church. Kit buyers can use one of the confetti poppers included in the kit at this time (but save one for later).
Don't Look Like A Virgin Pro-Tip: Unfortunately, rice is very difficult to clean up and makes the floor extremely slippery for the performers, and can attract rodents and such if not completely cleaned up. Don't use this at Midnight Madness shows.

Large "J"-"A"-"N"-"E"-"T" cards
In the kit? No
Is it allowed? : Yes at The Music Box (this is usually kind of hard to pull off and look good, and you need several people to do it, so it's not done very often by audience members)
When to use: During Dammit Janet when Brad says Janet's name, and when spells out Janet's name, each card is held up as he spells it. Some people also write "Oh" "B"-"R"-"A"-"D" on the back of them and use them then.

Water Guns
In the kit? No
Is it allowed? : No at The Music Box
When to use: During the song There's a Light (Over at the Frankenstein Place), while they are walking through the rain
Don't Look Like A Virgin Pro-Tip: It does NOT rain in cars! Start after they get out, and don't squirt at the performers!

Glow Stick / flashlight
In the kit? Yes (1 qty)
Is it allowed? : Yes (NO Lighters, matches, flammables due to fire code restrictions)
When to use: During the song There's a Light (Over at the Frankenstein Place), while the "There's a Light" chorus is playing
Don't Look Like A Virgin Pro-Tip: Only hold up and wave the light stick during the actual chorus, when they say "in the darkness", lower/conceal it. You may also use flashlights or your cell phone.
