Late-Night Smash Serial Killers Returns
to Sacred Fools for its 14th Season,
Bringing New Surprises
Los Angeles, CA (October 5, 2017) Returning for a record 14th season, Serial Killers is back on the Sacred Fools stage for another season of Saturday night after-hours fun. In Serial Killers, the fate of five original serials is in the hands of the voting audience, making them the titular serial killers. The show returns tomorrow, October 6 at 11:00 PM.
Sporting the tagline ‘Five Shows Enter, Three Shows Leave,' Serial Killers predates Smartphones and shows no signs of slowing down. Over 300 storylines have premiered on the Serial Killers stage, some enduring a quick death after one episode, others enjoying long runs and, in several cases such as Watson, A Kind of Love Story, and Absolutely Filthy, graduating from late-night to prime-time slots as mainstage plays in the Sacred Fools season. This season's mainstage closer Tangerine Sunset by Peter Fluet emerged from the Serial Killers crucible.
“Over the past 14 seasons Serial Killers has been responsible for workshopping many of Sacred Fools' hit shows while simultaneously building a community of theatre makers and lovers,” said Travis Snyder-Eaton, who co-produces the show with Padraic Duffy, Scott Leggett, Cj Merriman, Jax Ball and Tim Kopacz.
Throughout its long run, Serial Killers has taken place on the stage of whatever show has been running on the Sacred Fools mainstage. This cycle of Serial Killers will take place on the Broadwater main stage, where Sacred Fools Season 22 opener Resa Fantastiskt Mystisk is playing. For more information about that show, see the previous press release here. Serial Killers will run each Saturday at 11:00 PM through November 17, taking the week of Thanksgiving off and then running through December 15 before breaking until February, 2019.
