The 2015 Sideshow Gala

An exclusive benefit for Sideshow Theatre Company


It’s an all-out war of pomp and circumstance as the Buckford-Westingtons defend ancestral belongings from their distant relatives, the Peascotts. The nouveau-riche and painfully hipsterish Peascotts are attempting a startup style takeover of the family Auxiliary Trophy Barn Annex, which they plan to utilize as a server farm for their new internet startup company, oölb. Backed into a corner, the Buckford-Westingtons will use their time-honored tradition to end family feuds:

The Buckford-Westington Foofera Assuagement Protocols

With the Buckford-Westington style competitive games already underway, we are counting down the days until the 2015 Gala, where the rousing conclusion of this high-class competition can be experienced up close and personal. You can even partake in the festivities, with high-brow adaptations of classic American games. Guests can look forward to:  


Champagne pong with butlers for pong ball cleaning, fetching and celebrity shooting


Updates on the scoring of the Foofera, in real time, up until the grand finale


A ceremonial bout of the Butler Battle, a combat style pioneered by the Buckford-Westington family

With plentiful food and drink, delicious desserts, whiskey tastings and more, the 2015 Gala will prove to be Sideshow's most exciting one yet! Join us for inter-family strife at its richest and purchase your tickets today!
