The Sacred Fools Theater Company is a Los Angeles-based theatre company and nonprofit organization. It was founded in January 1997. Their productions are typically staged at their theater space at 660 N. Heliotrope in Los Angeles, California. It is a member organization of the LA Stage Alliance.[1]

Organization[edit]

Sacred Fools is governed partly by a non-dues paying company, and partly by a traditional board of directors. A three-person Artistic Committee is elected each season from by the company, and also a three-person membership committee. The board of directors oversees business matters. Sacred Fools has an open door policy and does not restrict directors to casting actors from within the company. Sacred Fools is a primarily volunteer-run organization.

For Season 16 (2012-2013), the Artistic Directors were Alyssa Preston, Leon Russom, and French Stewart. For Season 17 (2013-2014), the Artistic Directors are Rebecca Larsen, Jonas Oppenheim, and Ben Rock. For Season 18 (2014-2015), the Artistic Directors will be Tifanie McQueen, Guy Picot, and Ben Rock.

History[edit]

The Sacred Fools Theater Company was founded by a group of theater artists in the Santa Monica living room of John Sylvain. The group very quickly formed a non-profit corporation, raised money, and found a space. They initially subleased the 660 N. Heliotrope space from Deaf West Theatre, and eventually leased the space outright.

Since its founding, Sacred Fools has produced over 100 different shows, including several World Premieres, West Coast Premieres, and Los Angeles Premieres.
