Like the swallows return to Capistrano, S&F returns to Australia in 2015!
We'll be at Fringe World in Perth from 23-29 January, bringing back two hit shows, "Hitchcocked" and "Hamlet & Juliet" for the one-week run. Then we have a couple of weeks off, where anything can happen, and after we recover, we'll be in Adelaide for a couple of weeks of the Adelaide Fringe Festival, from 13 February to 1 March, reprising "Hamlet & Juliet" there - but for the first time in "prime-time" at 7:30pm each night (excl. Mondays)

Whatever you're celebrating, have a good season of it. If you're not celebrating something... maybe you should?
Other news: Just finished our 14th season at the Texas Renaissance Festival, and we'll be heading back to Australia in mid-January for 6 weeks of festivals and shows there! Details to come shortly!

FIVE STARS for 'Doc Faustus!'

Here's a link to the full review! (Have you seen us at the Fringe? You can add your review to the bottom of this one!)
'Doc Faustus' at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe!
We've opened our 3-week long run at Underbelly as part of the largest theatre festival in the world - and had a lovely opening night! Tonight is another preview night, and there's deals to be had next Monday and Tuesday too! We hope you can make it in to see the show!
We've returned for the 4th time to the EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE in Scotland - we're there the whole month (2-26, except 15th) as part of the Comedy Festival, at Underbelly, in the White Belly theatre, in prime time, at 8pm!July 30, 2012
'Dirty Fairy Tales' at The Winnipeg Fringe Festival!
In the Fall, some things are still in the works - but we're definitely back at the Crighton Theatre in Conroe TX (with "Dirty Fairy Tales") and for the full run of the Texas Renaissance Festival near Houston! (With "Hamlet & Juliet" and "Testaclese Descending!")June 5, 2012
'Doc Faustus' at The Hollywood Fringe Festival!
We got a couple of lovely reviews, plus a feature story that Richard wrote:
"Going on an International Fringe Binge" - L.A. Stage Times Article by Richard Maritzer
L.A. Artsbeat 'Best of the Fringe' - "All in all a fantastic show that should not be missed!" - artsbeatla.com
"[Made] the audience roll on the floor in laughter and amazement!" - examiner.com
THE AUSTRALIA TOUR
Hey Furies! We went back to Australia again, for TEN WEEKS this time! We went to the Perth Fringe Festival in Western Australia, for 4 weeks, then had a week off before the Adelaide Fringe Fest (where we were short-listed for the People's Choice Award!), and had a great time there for 4 weeks, and then toured NSW and QLD for two weeks... we did theatre and school shows in: Glen Innes, Armidale, Bundarra, Bingara, Barraba, Manilla, and the oddly named 'Kentucky.' Then up in Queensland we went to Port Douglas for our 3rd time, to perform at the Clink Theatre! Quite the tour - and it looks like next year will be an even longer tour to more places!
And here's a link to one of the best reviews we've ever gotten for any show, anywhere: The Punch review of DF
Also! The Doc Faustus DVD is available, and shipping now! Order yours NOW!

Doc Faustus is now touring the world!
After a terrific month of July in Canada with the new show, we're unleashing 'Doc Faustus' on the rest of the world! A parody mash-up of Western Films and Kit Marlowe's (only) famous play, it's got the trademark Sound & Fury silliness, song and sex...ual innuendo!
We're bringing it to Conroe Texas on October 28, New Orleans on Nov 2, and Austin TX on Nov 18 (a double feature with "Spaceship Man!") and then hopefully a night or two in L.A. Then in 2012 we'll be going to Perth Fringe, Adelaide Fringe (plus regional Australia touring), and the Edinburgh Fringe in August!16 April, 2011
