Firesign Theatre - Creative Rights
Here at Firesign Central World Headquarters, we occasionally receive requests from performance groups and organizations regarding access to Firesign plays and sketches, and how to obtain the rights to perform said Firesign works in public. We anticipate an influx of these requests now that there are three new books of Firesign plays and sketches available, in addition to Anythynge You Want To.
We therefore direct your attention to this page, which contains our policy and contact information.
Peter Bergman 1939-2012
We are very sad to report that Peter Bergman, a founding member of the Firesign Theatre and the driving force behind Radio Free Oz in all its incarnations, passed away in the early morning hours of Friday, March 9, 2012 due to complications from leukemia.
We have set up a Memorial Guestbook page on this site.
There will be a "Big Brouhaha" celebrating Peter's life and work, April 21st at the Kirkland Memorial Center in Seattle, WA. Check back here for details.
