For two decades Sacred Fools has opened its heart and stage to me and thousands of artists and volunteers. If most places in Hollywood have a locked door and no keyhole, Sacred Fools has an open entryway and all the widows lifted. No dues. Open auditions. Opportunities to show your work and passion. Supportive members. I love this place. Where else could you spend so much time planning to help others realize their dreams?
Sacred Fools is more than its plays (20 seasons worth of plays and events, over 100 local and national awards, thousands of hours of fun/entertainment/art/lofty dreams actualized), it is its COMMUNITY. I stepped inside Sacred Fools for the first time in 1999. The pulse of its membership remains as vibrant and energized today as then. Some faces are different, some babies have been born, some actors are on the small screen, but the essence of a community coming together to play and learn and laugh and revel at the magic of a dark theater remains the same.
There are so many unique ways to engage with community; our summer camp, donate what you can night – where audience can name their ticket price and all proceeds benefit a local charity organization, neighbor theater discounts and some of the best group sales ticket rates for school groups in town, to name a few.
Sacred Fools is embarking on its landmark 20th season. By helping our effort today, you are officially part of one of the great families of the nation. On behalf of our entire voluneer staff, thank you for being the big-hearted Fool that you are!
You are appreciated, and the door is always open. We hope to see you in the house—or on the stage—very soon.
