Restart the Art Machine!

THANK YOU for helping turn our modest "Restart the Art Machine" fundraiser into a smashing success, exceeding our $8000 goal by $5621! We're abashed and grateful, and excited to get back to bringing you theater in 2022. HAPPY NEW YEAR!⁣⁣


An end of the year message from the President of the Sacred Fools Board of Directors:

Dear Sacred Fools Patrons, Friends and Family,

As we approach the end of 2021 we want to wish each and everyone of you a joyous, rewarding and healthy New Year. It's our hope that 2022 will bring with it more opportunities, more safety, more hope... and more theater.

And as we enter the new year, I hope you will consider a tax-deductible end of the year donation to help Sacred Fools "restart the art machine."

The frustrating realities of this past year - the one-two punch of pandemic and drastically increased production costs - prevented Sacred Fools from being able to fully restart our Artistic output and mount full, public performances. We were, however, able to present long time company member Victor Isaac's "The Word" as a simultaneous livestreaming and live-in-person event in the Fall which proved to be not only wonderfully entertaining but also truly cathartic... especially for the live audience in the theater.

While Sacred Fools may have appeared to be quiet on the public surface, 2021 was still a productive year for the Company off-stage:

• We engaged with the difficult but necessary introspection regarding equity, diversity, inclusion and access and the Board, Staff and Membership is committed to making changes where we need to and to keep justice and anti-racism centered as we move forward.

• We continued to make physical improvements to our home, The Broadwater Theater, which will benefit not just Fools but so many other local theater creators and patrons.

• We (in particular Artistic Directors Vanessa Stewart and Marc Antonio Pritchett) boldly engaged with CA. state lawmakers in an attempt to redress the unintended but serious damage that recent changes to labor law have wrought on the arts community in L.A.

• We began the process of re-thinking our staff structure in the wake of new labor law realities, beginning with hiring our first Producing Director (Scott Leggett) who will oversee and facilitate many aspects of our creative and marketing output.

And, Iím thrilled to announce to you that we will finally be having a full production opening in late January - "How We Got On" by Idris Goodwin, directed by company member Jaime Robledo!

2022 will be Sacred Fools' 25th year as a part of... and an important force within... the Los Angeles Intimate Theater community. It will be a transformative year for the company filled with great goals... and greater challenges.

First challenge... RESTART THE ART MACHINE!

If you can share anything at all to help us turn on the machine after idling for too long, it will be greatly appreciated and met with the deepest gratitude.

Thank you and may your new year be happy, healthy and arty.

Bruno Oliver
Board President, Sacred Fools Theater Company
