Midnight Insanity began at the Balboa Theatre in Newport Beach, California in 1988. When the Balboa closed in 1991, the cast moved to the Art Theatre at Forth and Cherry in Long Beach, and have performed Saturdays at Midnight there ever since.
They are the only Rocky cast to be honored by a municipality as the mayor of proclaimed January 17th, 1995 "Midnight Insanity Day" in Long Beach in recognition of their various fundraising activities and work with local youth.
The cast and its members have performed at national conventions at Fox studios in Hollywood for the 15th, Las Vegas, Beverly Hills and most recently in Hollywood at the 20th. After their
special performance at the Pantages, Richard O'Brien requested the backdrop they had painted and used as a set.
In 1993 Midnight Insanity sponsored and hosted "The Age of Consent," a National Convention at the Hilton in Long Beach commemorating the 18th Anniversary, attended by fans from across the country which featured an appearance by Radio legend, Dr. Demento. At that convention over $1000 was raised for AIDS Project Los Angeles.
Midnight Insanity cast members have won several awards for costumes including "Midget Transylvanian", "Transylvanian", "Janet", "Eddie", "Magenta", and "Columbia." At the Twentieth, Midnight Insanity won for Eddie, Riff, Magenta and Transylvanian.
