At FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD in 2001, we invented the extended convention. It be the first convention that went 4 days instead of 2. It kicked major booty...as you can see on arrr website. In 2005 MI Hosted the 30th Anniversary. This event was under attack by the bilge-sucking residents of Davy Jones’ Locker, attorneys for Cirque du Soleil, because of the name. They threatened to sue but backed down because of the awesome power of Rocky Horror. Once again we be planning FOUR DAYS OF ADDLED DEBAUCHERY!!! We will give you an Overload of aaaRrrHPS but also a chance to put on yer dancing shoes and splice the mainbrace. If yer work or ship don’t permit the entire event, come anyway.

This is where ye put yerself on the Rocky (Treasure?) Map so summon all yer creativity and design a performance of ten minutes or less that bears yer own unique stamp.
