Colonial Theatre

Emilie Autumn’s Fight Like a Girl tour comes to the Colonial Theatre this Friday, Feb. 1.

The Sacramento Horror Film Festival presents Autumn and her band the Bloody Crumpets. The current tour brings a delectable theatrical presentation by the versatile artist, who is also an author, poet, actress, singer-songwriter and trained violinist.

The North American tour that was scheduled to pass by Sacramento last year was rescheduled due to illness. The FLAG tour promotes their latest album “Fight Like a Girl.”

Local Autumn fans patiently waited for the tour to be rescheduled, and grabbed tickets as soon as they were released, nearly selling out the performance.

Autumn is no stranger to the Colonial Theatre stage. Last May, Autumn performed in SHFF’s presentation of the cult film “The Devil’s Carnival.” Autumn appeared in Darren Lynn Bousman’s film as the Painted Doll. “The Devil’s Carnival” is a musical horror film that continues to attract new followers.

Autumn has amassed a following of dedicated and passionate fans who love and appreciate her on-stage theatrics. The current tour aims to bring a spectacle to the stage that will showcase Autumn’s musical and melodramatic antics as well as her theatrical talent, and she is also involved in costume and stage set design.

Autumn intends the Colonial Theatre (and all FLAG) performance to be more like a musical than a concert. These performances are a precursor to a full-blown planned musical that Autumn has been working on. That production will be based on her 2010 novel, “The Asylum for Wayward Girls.”

The FLAG tour is in essence part of the musical that Autumn plans to present in 2014. Who knows, it may also have the potential of being put to film. Autumn is always thinking about new projects to fill her talented creativity.

Autumn’s writing, acting, songwriting, set design, costuming and music take center stage at the Colonial Theatre for an evening of pomp and musical entertainment. The creative performer, whose music touches classical, electronica, glam rock, industrial and other genres, will perform Feb. 1 at SHFF’s presentation at the Colonial Theatre.
