Description
The Thrillpeddlers was a San Francisco-based multigenerational queer theater company specializing in Grand Guignol plays and Theatre of the Ridiculous. They also staged revivals of the Cockettes musicals. The theater company was operational for over 25 years and closed in 2016-2017. The collection includes set pieces, props, signs, including a large theater sign reading “Thrillpeddlers Hypnodrome,” and other artifacts from the company and the Hypnodrome, the longtime venue of the Thrillpeddlers.
