She misses the seventies, hates bad '80s fashion, and says things like, "Your mom."" – Z "Don't worry about Ice cold, luke warm will do." – Wing "She is so Hannah. And we all love her not just because she is great and kooky but because she makes us feel ok with being kooky, and she is so Hannah. It's great." – Scully "Hannah is of Irish decent. I think this means she eats a lot of potatoes. She also sleeps weird. But she wears corsets so I guess that makes everything ok." – Kara "A delightful person, who enjoys bantering on all things naval. Of lesser stature but of greater character, and a better wit can not be found." – Dr. Maturin (well, actually Tegan) "She just IMed me." - Mullet

With so many changes and chapters between then and now, I think the only thing that remains the same is the spirit. Second, RKO Army is the linear cast dating back thru all the various names. My association with Rocky Horror was listening to the Rocky Horror album in 1979 of my best (and only) friend Bob who was going to the Cinerama on Hope Street in Providence. Having graduated college, I finally went there on Memorial Day w/e in 1980. That lasted a year and didn't go or end well, but ... lessons learned. I soon joined a cast in Newport's Jane Pickens Theater and eventually became de-facto cast leader. That show ended in 1982. After a run with another cast in Groton in 82-83, Bob and I pulled together the best of the casts of Newport/Providence/Groton and came back and performed the last show (and last movie) ever played at the now cast-less Cinerama in March of 1983. It was a sell out. That final night was the end of the beginning. From there, we ran shows every Friday and Saturday night every week at the Avon (1983), Cable Car (1983), Fairlawn (1983-4), Warwick Mall (1984-5), Cumberland Twin (1985-7), Meadowbrook (1987-1993), and back again to the Jane Pickens (1993-4). We had various names, for years the Rhode Island RHPS Cast, then Creatures of the Night, Wild & Untamed Things, and eventually the Absolute Pleasure Players. In 1994, we went from being a twice a week every week cast with 1400 shows under our belts to became a barnstorming cast, performing in theaters, clubs, colleges, and streets performing anything from regular shows to audio shows to slides shows to parades. Meanwhile, after 12 different cast versions from 1993 to 1996 at the departed Meadowbrook, a very young and disciplined group called the RKO Players had formed. We ran parallel in 1996, but we found great mutual respect and friendship with them and by 1997 we began attending and performing in each other's productions. Thru complimentary osmosis, we merged our forces, with the younger "RKO" using it's energy to focus on the (now) weekly show and the older "APP" using it's experience and physical resources to focus on everything else outside that, with no delineation on membership within a year. The Meadowbrook run ended in 2000. From there, we went to the Park Cinema (2000-1), the Limelight (2001, same building as the Meadowbrook), and the Castle (2001-3). Plus a monthly run at the Pastime (2002-3). It was during 2003 that we renamed everything "RKO Army". A new era began in 2003 with the turning to monthly rather than weekly shows and doing the shows at multiple sites. We had runs at the Holiday/Island 10 (2003-2010), Triboro (2004-5), South Kingstown (2007-2010), and East Bridgewater (2005-2011). We still have runs at the Foxboro Orpheum (2007-) and Lincoln CinemaWorld (2010-) and a fledgling run at the Flagship in West Wareham (2011-). Of course, we still road shows, parades, club shows, and anything else under the sun. At the 4711 Con in 2011, we were asked to host the 2013 national Rocky Horror Con, a calling we were humbled by and honored to accept.
Birthday August 15 Occupation Anything that pays the bills - Sean has been a disgruntled Government employee (US Census Bureau), a pretzel baker, a chauffeur at a whorehouse, a screen printer, a dish-washer, a janitor, and about a hundred other things, at least three of which could have gotten him arrested. Fun Facts I've also played Trixie once(in a gorilla suit), Rocky twice(as Crimmie and the Incredible Hulk), Hellboy for a preshow at the NYC Rocky convention, and Riff for the spacesuit scenes at The Big "O" con in Witchita,KS. Sean once performed a two-man show of Shock Treatment in NJ, for an actual paying audience, playing six different roles by quick-changing different costume pieces. He has played Eddie and Crim in the same show, and performed in two different states in the same night. Sean has the Rocky lips and title tattooed on his right shoulder blade. Favorite Quotes "Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain!!!!!" Tour of Duty 1997-2004? *** TECH *** Lights, Props *** STAGE *** Rocky Eddie, Crim, Dr. Scott Shock Treatment Judge Oliver Wright *** BIO *** Sean attended his first show at the Meadowbrook Cinemas on Halloween of '97 and he's been back every week since then. He joined the cast in Dec. of that year, after he got tired of waiting in the lobby while his friends were in cast meetings. The only remaining member of the old "Conn. Crew", Sean has been playing Eddie, Crimmie, and Dr. Scott since joining the cast, and running the light for almost as long. Later, he added the role of Judge Oliver Wright in Shock Treatment to his resume. He is a Master of an obscure style of two-fisted Ninja lighting techniques taught only in a small village in Tibet, as well as the owner of the Magic Rocky Bag, from which he's been known to pull entire shows at a moment's notice. A graduate with honors from the MacGuyver School, in his spare time he builds advanced technological devices from duct tape, drinking straws, and bubblegum. Sean has seen Rocky in ME, MA, RI, CT, NY, NJ, PA, W. Virginia, Kansas, and Florida (337 times as of 5-1-05), and performed in eight of those states, including national conventions in NYC, Wichita, and Philadelphia. As well as being a member of RKO and having free-lanced locally in RI and MA with both the Teseract Players and Absolute Pleasure Players, Sean has been the director of the short-lived Half-Ass Cast in CT, a member of another short-run charity cast in CT, and has guest-performed with casts in NJ, PA, and West Virginia.. And will gleefully prostitute his incredible talents for any cast willing to let him perform(pleasepleasepleaseplease). Sean got involved with theatre in his senior year of high school, doing makeup and props for the school's production of "The Hobbit". His arm made it's theatrical debut holding up a branch that had broken off of the cardboard tree in the background. After acquiring ten theatre arts credits at UCONN, where he played the evil Puppetman in a red cap and green felt lederhosen in a traveling children's partici....pation play, he took a year off from school before being forcibly press-ganged into the Three Rivers Comm.-Tech. College Theater Guild, where he built sets, acted, and worked as a stage hand on several productions, in addition to public readings of his original poetry. His hobbies include compulsive reading, old-school paper-and-dice role-playing games, painting fantasy miniatures, costuming, and anything else that manages to hold his attention for more than a second or two...
