Sacred Fools 2011 – Serial Killers & Ten Tops!

Serial Killers - host Terry balloons

***

Sacred Fools Theater Co, in Hollywood, have plenty of great shows in their 2011 Season of madness and mayhem.

For the sixth year running, their wacky, late night Serial Killers” season kicks off on Jan 22, 2011, presented by Sacred Fools Theatre Company, and produced by Victor Isaac, J.J. Mayes, and Colin Willkie.

Billed as a late-night tryout show where “Five Plays Enter, Three Plays Leave,” new shows will be staged on Saturday nights at 11pm, from January 22nd -February 19th, 2011, following the current evening show Puzzler.

Tickets are $7; available only at the Box Office.

Head over on January 22nd to see the next episodes of adorable “Ask Elizabeth,” gleefully gross “Memoirs of a Scheissefrau,” aptly titled adventure about a pair of sisters and a lion, entitled – uh – “The Sisters and the Lion,” and epic adventure “The Whaler” (“They”™re on the high seas to hell!!”)

Yes indeed; thanks to a rare third-place tie, this time they have FOUR returning champions instead of the usual three. Normally, this is how it works: five serials face off, and at the end of the show the audience votes for the three stories they would like to see continue on to the next week. The following Saturday night, their subsequent episodes are pitted against two completely new storylines. Each week”™s serials could live on for weeks… or be quietly smothered in their sleep – it”™s entirely up to the voting audience.

The sixth season of Serial Killers will again culminate in a head-to-head battle royale between 16 competing serials; $1000 in prizes up for grabs, and a brutal showdown.

Critical acclaim!  Celebrity guests! Voting! Prizes!

Come see the show that spawned the hit musical Beaverquest, long-running cult classic and San Francisco Fringe Fest 2010 “Best Ensemble” winner Magnum Opus Theatre, and two of this year”™s mainstage shows; Carnevil and championship-winning Watson!

Head to Sacred Fools Theater on January 22nd at 11pm and kill something!
