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. There will be carnival-style fare (including fresh hot popcorn), plus a celebratory cake in celebration of "Deadly" following their opening-night performance. 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.
