At the Broadwater Complex, Lillian Way & Santa Monica (Directions)
Step into the light and join in a chorus of celebration at our SACRED FOOLS SEASON 23 LAUNCH PARTY!
Gather with your favorite Fools on the opening night of our original musical DEADLY for our annual season kick-off and fundraising extravaganza.
From 7pm-2am, The Broadwater and The Plunge will be closed to the public for this private event, and guests will be treated to complimentary snacks and sweets. Music and mystery will fill the Black Box while The Plunge will feature your favorite cocktails for purchase.
Choose one of two paths: DEADLY ticket holders will see the show at 8pm while party-goers continue to enjoy mingling and entertainment in our Black Box. DEADLY attendees are welcome to partake in the above before and after the show.
When the show concludes, all guests will have the opportunity for a brief meet-and-greet with the DEADLY cast and crew, including actor extraordinaire FRENCH STEWART, celebrated writer VANESSA CLAIRE STEWART, and award-winning director JAIME ROBLEDO.
Then, stay for the exciting featurette: The FINDING YOUR VOICE Vocal Competition! After inviting Fools and Foolish Friends to pre-enter their singing submissions, we'll take to the stage to present the seven most entertaining vocalists in a spirited competition where YOU, the audience, will be a deciding vote! And you may even have the chance to perform, yourself... and win a CASH PRIZE! Details below!
More merriment to enjoy after the featurette until 2am.
Two options to attend:
1. Your $15 ticket to DEADLY will provide free admission to the event (please check in to the Main Stage for your ticket and wristband).
2. Attending only the party will cost $10 (please check in to the Black Box for your wristband).
This event will have several opportunities to help us raise money for a much-needed new sound system in the Main Stage. Gifts in any amount - large or small - are appreciated.
Three Cheers for Season 23!
ATTENTION SINGERS! Do you think you have what it takes to win the first ever Sacred Fools FINDING YOUR VOICE Vocal Competition? As part of our 23rd Season Launch Party, after the opening of our world premiere musical Deadly, we are hosting a singing competition with a CASH PRIZE and want YOU!
Please submit a short video (1 minute) showcasing your singing talents in order to be selected as a finalist to . In your submission tell us how you are connected to Sacred Fools. Do you regularly attend Sacred Fools shows? Were you in a Fringe show at the Broadwater? Have you auditioned for a mainstage show? Let us know! We'll announce our finalists September 1st!
"When is the actual singing competition?" It'll be starting around 11:30pm on September 13th - after the opening performance of our world premiere musical, Deadly.
"If I'm going to see Deadly (or am a part of Deadly), can I also submit?" Absolutely - there will be no overlap, since they'll be taking place in the same theatre.
"Do I need an accompanist for my audition?" Nope! Acappella is fine; if you've got a backing track, that's cool, and if you do have an accompanist, then that's also splendid. First and foremost, we want to hear you sing and see you sell it - it's all about entertainment! No need to stress over production value.
"Do I need an accompanist for the show?" The live
performances will be accompanied by a track, karaoke style. Finalists will
be provided the karaoke catalogue list to choose from, thanks to our DJ!
"What if I just wanna karaoke and don't want to compete?" Come hang out! After the competition, we'll have open karaoke for anyone who's found their voice in the course of the evening.
"How will the winner be selected?" There will be a panel of judges, but the audience will get input too. Since this is also a fundraiser for theatre, audience members will be able to donate in the name of their favorite contestant to add bonus points to their scores. And the winner gets the grand prize of $250!
