It’s the season in which theatre companies announce their season. There are many to report on but SF Oasis seems to have some exciting things coming that I needed to share.
SF Oasis, an award-winning night club that also does Off-Broadway level shows as well as drag productions, is starting 2024 off with 9 to 5: Live! This takes the gay friend 1980 movie to a new level featuring drag queens and kings in the key roles. Oasis often relies on their troupe of performers to be in the various shows but this production features some fresh faces to the Oasis stage: Coco Buttah, Vanilla Meringue, Tater Tatas, Jota Mercury, Titus Androgynous and Elsa Touche. Don’t you just love drag names?
Sqream returns to the Oasis stage Feb. 14. The spoof of the popular movies is written by one of the most talented actor/director/writer’s the Bay Area has: Michael Phillis. Some of Oasis’ most popular actors return to this show including D’Arcy Drollinger, Snaxx, Manuel Canari and Phillis himself.
For both above shows, tickets are on sale now. But do keep in mind some of their other highlights for 2024.
Bitch Slap returns in April and one of the funniest shows EVER put on at the Oasis. This original production, from Dollinger, spoofs every soap opera and offers some multi-media recreations making the show seem as grandiose as the real soap operas.
The summer will bring back Star Trek Live! likely with the same drag kings that made the original Oasis productions popular enough to do encore productions.
Drollinger has become known as the ultimate Frank-n-Furter from The Rocky Horror Show and this will return to the nightclub this October as well.
The most interesting show of the season will be The Nanny Live! Who will play her? Who can put on that annoying but loved voice? You’ll have to wait until November to find out.
