Shredder Orpheus
Oct 22

Co-presented with Light in the Attic Records and Scarecrow Video

Light in the Attic merch available for purchase before the show

Thursday, Oct 22 at 08:00PM

We're kicking off a new series with Light in the Attic Records with Seattle cult classic Shredder Orpheus.

Seattle's first and only skate rock opera shreds its way out of the depths of hell for a rare 35mm screening.

On the Boards founding artistic director Robert McGinley wrote, directed and starred in this late '80s rendition of the Greek myth, alongside familiar Seattle art staples like Megan Murphy, Jesse Bernstein and skate fixture Marshall Reid.

The Euthanasia Broadcast Network, a nefarious television station run by overlord Hades, is brainwashing the city. It's up to guitar-slinging skater Orpheus and his merry band of misfits to stop Hades and his minions.

Both zeitgeisty '80s camp and eerily prescient commentary on Seattle's continuous affordable housing dilemma, this gem of Seattle cultural history is taken to the next level by its wicked punk soundtrack, released by Light in the Attic and available for purchase here.
