A astonishing array of celebrities hit the stage in LA last Thursday, October 28, for a special charity tribute to The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Directed by High School Musical creator Kenny Ortega, the evening raised money for the Painted Turtle Summer Camp for critically ill children.

The show featured a massive number of stars strutting their stuff and doing the Time Warp for a good cause, including the Pussycat Dolls' Nicole Scherzinger, Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, Billy Idol, Jason Segal, Julian McMahon, Lea Michele, Jorge Garcia, Ricki Lake, Mario Lopez, Matthew Morrison, Evan Rachel Wood and many more.

The Painted Turtle is part of Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang camps for sick children. According to the organization: "In 1999, Paul Newman and Page Adler founded The Painted Turtle. Of the more than one million children in California with chronic illnesses, our needs assessment revealed that there are over 17,500 who are unable to attend summer camp due to their medical needs. The Painted Turtle provides these children and their families with an empowering, renewing experience completely free of charge.

“Since nearly 40% of our campers are from low income families, The Painted Turtle and our supporters give these children the gift of a lifetime, a gift of laughter, fun, and personal growth that they would otherwise not be able to experience. This gift has the potential to improve both the quality and quantity of our campers’ lives, because what makes them stronger, happier and healthier at The Painted Turtle, is exactly what they take with them into every challenge they face for the rest of their lives.”
