You’ve got a seat in the studio audience for the live broadcast of Serpientes y Escaleras, The Network’s most popular nightly game show. Maybe you’ll be lucky, and your ticket stub will be drawn from the fishbowl! You’ll get a chance to re-live key moments of your life and see if they were Serpientes (boo!) or Escaleras (yay!)… If you land on enough Escaleras, you could win the game and get your big break!

It’s a special night here at Serpientes y Escaleras. A new cast member, Justice (fresh from the Network’s Empathacting Institute) is joining the show, and Ida, one of the head honchos from Network, is here to make sure Justice settles in comfortably. Rumor is Ida may even do a little empathacting herself!

But don’t worry. All your old favorites are here. Show-runner Silverio Morena (Sye for short) and psychic mistress-of-ceremonies Saligia Jones. Fan favorite and associate-producer-on-the-rise Michael, and the Fabulous Chicas Bonita & Paprika. Whether or not you end up onstage, you’ll have a great seat, so just settle in and watch the show. As Sye says… “Welcome to the fast-paced game show of virtues and vices, successes and setbacks, where you can climb the ladder to the pillowy clouds, or take a scaly, snaky ride deep into the unforgiving swamp… Welcome to SERPIENTES Y ESCALERAS!

It’s just a game, right?

Directed by Laurie Dietrich (JSPC) and featuring Bosse (JSPC) & Kenny (JSPC) as well as company member Michele Simpson and community artists Monessa Esquivel, Martha Prentiss & Clint Taylor.
