Words to live by: To me, bad taste is what entertainment is all about. If someone vomits watching one of my films, it's like getting a
standing ovation. But one must remember that there is such a thing as good bad taste and bad bad taste. --John Waters
Riff Raff/Musical Director/Producer

James Apollo & the Sweet Unknown
, and he has played in and co-produced Chandelier Productions Hedwig and the Angry Inch
since we first
started back in 2007. A Jack of all trades, he splits his time on our shows between graphic design, promotion, running sound, screen printing,
and even baking cupcakes!

. She also enjoys frying her hair with dye, sewing, drinking red wine, and listening

Hailing from the hot and sexy state of California, Anthony received raves for his portrayals of various corpses or otherwise disfigured souls in movies
and TV shows directed by Hollywood luminaries Steven Spielberg, John Woo, and Quentin Tarantino. Stage productions that notch his belt include Meet Me
in St Louis
(John Truitt), Anything Goes
(Lord Evelyn Oakley), and Thoroughly Modern Millie

life and lose his "Rocky" virginity with this fabulous and slightly deranged production.

, and Lucy, the robot who falls in love with a German cat/human scientist in the original student-written

cast in The Rocky Horror Show
, and also for all the love and support.
Paul Gauger (pronounced "GOW-gur") is a 23 year old Northwest native who has lived in Seattle for almost six years. Foregoing college and misguided
aspirations of Medical School, he moved to Seattle to pursue his dream of a career in opera. To that end he has spent the past five years training with
renowned vocal coach Erich Parce, as well as studying Italian, German, and French. From 2010 to 2011 he attended Seattle Central Community College to
study music theory and vocal performance, along with joining the SCCC Jazz Ensemble as lead singer and music arranger. Singing jazz gave Paul a taste
for performing outside the realm of classical music, and ever since he has been performing non-stop in Seattle's thriving musical theatre scene.
October of 2012 he played "Dr. Frank-N-Furter" (a dream role of his ever since he first saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the age of 14) in Chandelier
Productions' Science Fiction Double Feature
, and he is thrilled for the opportunity to reprise the role this December. Off stage Paul has many other
creative pursuits including writing and music composition, in addition to a less productive albeit equally passionate dedication to video games. However,
opera remains his focus and priority. For Paul this upcoming year will be dedicated to preparing for the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions,
a career-launching competition for young opera singers across North America.
Alex would like to quote her theatrical alter-ego and say: "I'm lucky, he's lucky, we're all lucky!" to be a part of this cast of total and
complete weirdo rock stars. Alex moved to (outside of) Seattle from Brooklyn, NY, just a few days before she was cast with Chandelier
Productions. This is her first ever Rocky Horror Picture Show experience and she couldn't be happier or more proud to call this her Washington
premier. Alex got an acting degree from BU a couple of years ago and hopes to put it to good use here in Seattle. She also says she loves her
family almost as much as doing the Time Warp, and thanks to them for everything. XOXO!
Saxophonist Aaron Jenkins has been playing music for over twenty years, the last ten of which he has been active on the Seattle scene.
A graduate of the UW School of Music, Aaron has shared the stage with many notable groups, including The Soul Providers, Sly Lothario,
and Allen Stone. His current project is the afro-latin powerhouse, Cordaviva
Dr. Scott / Eddie
Making his stage debut in this show, Joel was discovered in a local karaoke bar mopping the floor with the competition, and recruited
after a brief but incredibly intense backroom casting couch session. When not singing, dancing, and blasting away his enemies, Joel
enjoys long walks on the beach, taxidermy, and glass bead making.
Jim is a veteran rock musician & has been playing in Seattle since before grunge. Multi-instrumentalist Sadler has played keyboards for
songwriter Brett Phillips, Michael Dowers' Goats, and film-scoring freak scene Monkeys With Machine Guns. Along with Jack and Matthew,
Jim is also a nascent Devil Doll.
After graduating with a degree in composition and clarinet performance at the University of Idaho, Lauren moved to Seattle where she now
regularly performs on woodwinds with both rock bands and classical ensembles alike. She's no stranger to musical theater, although this is
her first performance on stage rather than in the pit since moving here.
Anna Urband is a mean-muggin' mo-fo that likes to melt faces and cut a rug. Although she has been keeping busy dancing and performing
at live soul nights (and things of the like) throughout the city, RHS will be her first production since moving to Seattle. By the light
of day Anna works in the U.S. national office of an international non-profit fundraising company...savin' the world n' junk. She is truly
grateful for the opportunity to be involved in this show, and gets downright giddy to see this rag-tag group of hooligans on a weekly basis.
I'm convinced that come performance time, we'll cause an uproar to bring on the End of Days. BAM.
It seems like fate that Brad would someday play this role. Seattle born and raised, Brad is an alumnus of the University of Washington,
where he studied both theater and marketing. Recent credits: Barnaby in The Matchmaker
(Taproot), Frankie in Forever Plaid

contributing vocals and guitar to the bands Throwaway Angels and Four Easy Pieces. Currently he plays bass in
and fronts On The Make

Last Mother's Day, we ended our first season with a spectacular eleven piece band Roy Orbison tribute concert at the Triple Door. In October 2012 we
performed a sell-out run of Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show
and John Cameron Mitchell and Steven Trask's Hedwig & the
presented as a live double feature. This four-night event earned $8,000 for Gay City Health Project
Similarly, during Seattle Pride 2011, we partnered with Rudy's Barbershop
and The Stranger
to perform Hedwig
sell-out crowd (550+) at the Crocodile in benefit of Dan Savage's It Gets Better Project.
Together with these businesses we helped to raise over $10,000.
If you would like to help us raise money for these causes the easiest thing you can do is buy tickets to our shows. If you are unable to
attend or would just like to help out more we welcome your donations, which help us put on bigger and better shows to raise even more money
for these great organizations. Basically every dollar we receive we will work our hardest to multiply into the biggest donation possible
through our stage shows!
