Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Little Shop of Horrors
Batman (original 1960's version)
I've participated in small bit parts in all of them, except Hedwig, which always ended up being scheduled on nights where either my band was playing, I had a wedding to attend, or just had other plans.
Ah, ironically, I have always used the term floorshow, being originally from NY/NJ casts... but in reference to performing other movies, I tend to think of it as shadowcasting. I think maybe the last 10 years of living elsewhere may also have caused me to hear the term Shadowcast more often.
Im with Moishe on this one, I guess Im showing my age. Ive always refered to us as " the cast " or " the floorshow "..when I hear the term " shadowcast" I think of shadow boxing...a bunch of people making RH shadows on a wall or screen. But as time goes on descriptive terms and slang tend to change tend to change. I can remember when " shouting lines " evolved into " call backs ", and when the word "Rockypalooza" did not mean the same thing as a " Rocky convention "...different era's of RH involvement bring different terms into usage.
But, I digress. getting back to the main topic...
Ive only done Shock Treatment besides Rocky Horror.
But I would love ( love love LOVE! ) to be in or see a floorshow for MURDER BY DEATH. How this film was not done yet is beyond me! Alsdo, I saw Forbidden Zone performed once, and it was awesome!
Shock Treatment (at a couple of conventions, my fat ass was Rest Home Ricky, currently working on a local production, which if it pans out, I'll be Bert (finally))
Clue (Col Mustard, about to do it for the 3rd time in June)
Hedwig (random fill in spots)
Little Shop of Horrors as Mushnik
Batman (The Penguin 1967 version)
I seriously want to shadowcast Shaun of the Dead, The Princess Bride, Ghostbusters and Spaceballs

I think that might be the closest I can ever come to my life long dream of playing Mrs. Lovett on stage. *drool*
I'm actually going to be doing Hedwig this next Saturday. I've been wanting to do it for a while but have always had scheduling conflicts so this is finally my time to do it!
In Alaska we used to refer to it as the "Cabaret" version. Which I think coming to the lower 48 made people think we shadowcasted Cabaret... which would be fun - but what I would really love to shadow would be Flash Gordon. Murder by Death would be fun as well... but FLASH...

I met most of the people at SINS doing their production of Grease 2.
I know they do Clue annually amongst others.
I always wanted to do Dick Tracy....
When Dick Tracy came out we used to joke around & instead of saying "I'm on my way" (or any similar phrase where it would fit) we'd just say "Dick Tracy!"
In terms of shadowing & AP, given all the intercutting people do with some of the movies, it'd be funny anywhere in the movie that DT does the "I'm on my way" line (like 100 times) to splice in Frank saying "Commmminnnnggggg."
