8. Theater: Shocktoberfest 14: Jack the Ripper
Shocktoberfest, a San Francisco Halloween tradition, returns for its 14th year with an evening of screams, spanking, and songs commemorating the 125th anniversary of London’s Jack the Ripper murders. Taking place September 26 through November 23, Shocktoberfest 14: Jack the Ripper effortlessly combines the spirit of the horror-filled holiday with that of the City by the Bay, with entertaining performances of new and classic works including 1934’s Jack the Ripper, a witty musical take on Oscar Wilde’s Salome, and the Victorian spanking drama A Visit to Mrs. Birch & The Young Ladies of the Academy. Directed by Russell Blackwood, and performed by an enthusiastic ensemble cast, the passion of this performing arts troupe makes this S.F. ritual an absolute scream once again.
