About the Ticket Supplier: Thrillpeddlers
Thrillpeddlers is the 2009 SF Bay Guardian‘s Goldie Award winner for “Outstanding Local Discovery” in the arts, and in 2010, 7 X 7 Magazine named them the city’s best underground theater company. They have been performing a unique brand of horror and fetish theatre in San Francisco for over a decade. The company is continuously engaged in translating, adapting, and producing classic plays from the infamous repertoire of Le Theatre du Grand Guignol (www.grandguignol.com) as well as developing modern works by contemporary masters of the horror genre. The Hypnodrome, Thrillpeddlers’ performance venue, has the distinction of being the world’s only purpose-built horror theatre. Thrillpeddlers’ annual pageant of terror and titillation, Shocktoberfest!!, has become a San Francisco Halloween tradition, running every year since 2000.
