Sacred Fools Theater Company in Hollywood is CASTING for Forbidden Zone: Live in the Sixth Dimension! The live stage-musical adaptation of the 1982 cult film classic scored by Danny Elfman and directed by Richard Elfman. It’s a bawdy, sexy sci-fi/fantasy romp through Hell and back. Imagine “Alice in Wonderland” filtered through a surrealistic cartoon lens complete with sex, demons and talking chickens. A vast array of musical styles are explored throughout the play, from New Wave to American Jazz Standards.
KING FAUSTO – Little person, Male, any ethnicity, 25-40, some singing, some dancing.

Forbidden Zone is to be performed this May at the Sacred Fools Theater in Hollywood, CA. Last year the Sacred Fools Theater Company won the Franklin R. Levy Award for Musical in an Intimate Theater, five L.A. Drama Critics’ Circle Awards (including the Polly Warfield Award for
an Excellent Season in a Small to Mid-sized Theater), three L.A. Weekly Awards (including Musical of the Year), six Garland Awards, and
were voted MyFoxLA Hotlist’s Best Theatre Group; just a handful of the 51 awards we’ve won since the company’s founding in 1997.
Our eclectic 13th Season is emblematic of what makes Sacred Fools one of L.A.’s most dynamic theatre companies: we began with the wit,
charm, and foot-stomping glee of brand new musical Savin’ Up For Saturday Night (L.A. Weekly featured Pick), Hamlet Shut Up! (Ovation
Recommended and 9 LA Weekly Nominations including Best Production), a deconstruction of the Bard’s greatest tragedy. 2010 hurtles the Fools
into a darker realm with a fierce new multi-media translation of Bertolt Brecht’s Baal (LA Weekly GO!), followed by a nightmarish dive
into the suburban hell of Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom. We conclude with a freefall celebration of weirdness, the new
adaptation of a midnight movie musical cult classic, Forbidden Zone: Live in the 6th Dimension is directed by Scott Leggett, 2009 LA Weekly
Best Direction of a Musical nominee for Beaverquest! The Musical.
