THE UNTAMED STAGE: Weimar Berlin Kabarett
A New Musical by Scrumbly Koldewyn
Hypnodrome Producing Director
Thrillpeddlers have been performing authentic Grand Guignol horror plays, outrageous Theatre of the Ridiculous musicals, and spine-tingling lights-out spookshows in San Francisco for nearly 20 years.
THEATRE OF THE RIDICULOUS
In 2008, Thrillpeddlers embraced another niche theatrical genre with the company’s annual Theatre of the Ridiculous Revival. That year they performed productions of Charles Busch’s THEODORA, SHE-BITCH OF BYZANTIUM; Charles Ludlam’s JACK IN THE BEANSTALK; and Link Martin and Scrumbly Koldewyn’s PEARLS OVER SHANGHAI. The tradition continues today, with several more works added to the repetoire, including Vice Palace, Hot Greeks, Tinsel Tarts in a Hot Coma, and Club Inferno.

Young devotees of Horror, Sci-Fi and Suspense have a summer camp to call their own! Creepshow Camps face “fright” with curiosity and creativity, revealing the secret techniques behind scary entertainments’ vitality and power. Workshops led by our dedicated staff of teaching artists engage participants, hands-on, in activities that teach and reinforce the fundamental skills in monster make-up, special effects, sleight of hand and stage combat. In our theatre venue, campers screen classic horror movies and rehearse on-stage for farewell performances given for family and friends on the last two days of every Creepshow Camp session.
