At Crazed Imaginations, we adopted the term "shadowcast" for the linguistic precision.

"Floorshow" meant either the scene or the cast, and it's shorter than "floorshow cast."

We address shadowcasts of other films at:
www.rockypedia.org/Pop_Culture_Reference...RHPS_Treatment.22.3F

Rockypedia also addresses films that have tried to piggyback on the Rocky shadowcast phenomenon, such as Showgirls and the whole Singalonga thing.

It looks like we need to update our listings. If your cast has done a complete shadowcast of another film, I'd like to hear about it, for completeness if nothing else.

I'd love to hear more about shadowcasting TOMMY!

Beyond Rocky Horror, our cast has done several productions of The Buffy Musical: Once More With Feeling. When we did a live production of Dr. Horrible's Sing A-Long Blog, we would perform a shadow cast of Buffy right after and offer a two for one deal. The owner of the theatre that we perform at is a huge Joss Whedon fan, so he was all for it. We are also a sketch comedy group, so we would perform skits during "commercial breaks" to give the actors time to change.

We have done live productions of Cannibal! The Musical and Dr. Horrible's Sing A-Long Blog, and we plan to shadow cast them in the future if possible. We started rehearsing to do Clue, but we canceled it due to a schedule conflict. It would be nice to pick that up again and make it happen.

I'd really like to do Young Frankenstein at some point, I think that would be a great movie to shadowcast. Usually when our group watches movies together, we want to shadowcast everything we watch.

The problem with the old term 'Floorshow' is that it's also the name of a scene in the movie... lil confusing.

Shadowcast also makes an easier one-word description to virgins and media.

During my tenure as Director of Sins O' The Flesh in Los Angeles we did the following films:

Clue every year since 2001 (I was Mr. Body)
Grease 2 (I was Michael Carrington/Cool Rider)
Cry Baby (I was one half of Crybaby Walker)
Super Troopers (I was Mac)

Since I retired, I know they have done:
Psycho Beach Party
Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion

I've also participated in two seperate shadowcasts not directly associated with a Rocky cast:
Rainbow Carnage performs HEDWIG and the Angry Inch twice a year(I host and played Sgt. Luther Robinson... cause I'm the blackest person we knew)
Addicted To The Knife (ATTaK) performs REPO every month (I host and play Graverobber and Nathan Wallace)

In the next year I will bring two new films to the Los Angeles shadowcast community... ;)


CryBaby was without a doubt the biggest thrill outside of Rocky as I had to learn challenging dance choreography and direct a 40+ person cast. It was the most intense undertaking. Super Troopers was the most stress free and a lot of fun, and we had all of Broken Lizard appear at our screening. They had a blast.

Since I haven't seen anyone from CI in San Diego on here I'd tell you I know they've done:
South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Little Shop of Horrors

Agreed! We've done it twice. Amazing movie, the audience loves it and an all-around fun time.

Shock Treatment
Clue
Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Little Shop of Horrors
Batman (1966)

I once heckled the guy who was touring with the "Once More With Feeling" Buffy shadowcast for implying that Rocky Horror fans don't actually like Rocky Horror. "Rocky Horror fans don't like you mom!"

I have been in a shadowcast of REPO as Pavi Largo and would love to do it again. My face was actually made out of latex and cast from a mold of Amber Sweet's face. I would love to someday do The Phantom of the Paradise as either Winslow/Phantom or Beef.
