 Golden Corpse 

Cast members who perform with Golden Corpse are known for coming from diverse backgrounds in the arts and many have taken the stage in dozens of theater venues, locally and worldwide. We invite singers, dancers, actors, poets, and musicians on stage to delight audiences with stories about real characters who walked our streets, today and in yesteryear. We also set our stage for darker topics dealing with police injustice, corruption, murder, protests, and suicide as is seen in our show Journey of Memorie, about real San Diego characters and four ghosts. (pictured below)
