Participant Registration Open

Participant registration for the Hollywood Fringe Festival is now open. We welcome artists and producers around the world to join the Fringe in Los Angeles.

Registering for the Fringe is a three step process: Create a Project, Find a Venue, Register with the Festival.

Do you have a project you’d like to bring to the Fringe? Create a project on our newly-launched website now. Creating a project costs no money and carries no obligation. Projects include plays, art pieces, special events, bands, films – the Fringe welcomes all disciplines and expressions. We provide online tools to articulate and promote your vision including picture/video sharing, collaboration, and team building.

Lacking resources to produce a show by yourself? Post your ideas anyway, you never know who might be interested in helping you.

We’ve already assembled nine top-notch Hollywood venues interested in Fringe programming. There are more coming including homes for film and visual art projects. Having created a project, registrants can apply online to any of these venues. If none of them fulfill your needs, you can bring your own. All venues need to be located in Hollywood and conform to basic safety standards.

Once a venue is secured, there’s one last step: Registering with the festival itself. This one-time fee of $200 entitles you to all the benefits of registration.

Need help navigating through the registration process? That’s why we are here. Send an email to [email protected] and our participant support team will guide you along your journey. You can also refer to our website for more information about participating in the Fringe.

The festival runs June 17-June 27, 2010 in Hollywood, CA, USA. Registration closes April 1, 2010.

We look forward to seeing you in Hollywood this Summer!

Festival Director

Our Newset Venue: Art|Works

We are proud to have another Hollywood heavy-hitter join us in the Fringe festivities: Art|Works Theatre & Studios in the heart of Santa Monica’s Theatre Row.

This is one of those ideal Fringe venues: A proper theatrical space perfectly sized for Fringe shows (84+ seats) with a marvelous front lobby, three studio spaces that can easily house fringe shows, and a wonderful lot in the middle – perfect for hosting outdoor events.

Special thanks to Olya Petrakova, the manager of the space and a fervent advocate for the arts in Los Angeles and the world.

Make sure to learn more about Art|Works on their website.


Theatre of NOTE Joins the Fringe

We happily announce a partnership with Theatre of NOTE – one of the heavy hitters in the Hollywood Theatre scene. NOTE is the seventh venue to join Hollywood Fringe for Festival 2010.

We’ve actually been working with NOTE for a while now and are most pleased to make it official. Ezra Buzzington, board member at NOTE and co-founder of Seattle Fringe and FringeNYC has been advising us for a while now.

Here’s a little more on NOTE from their website…

Hollywood who inspire, inform, and ignite our audiences by discovering courageous voices and creating entertaining, provocative, and revelatory theatrical works.

  • We find a strong sense of communal self in our generosity, integrity, respect, diversity, and the democracy of our organization.

Welcome, Lounge Theatre!

We are most pleased to welcome The Lounge Theatre to the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Lounge is owned and managed by Theatre Planners and its founder and managing director Racquel Lehrman. For those of you looking for help with your theatrical endeavors – marketing, design, printing, producing – make sure to check out their list of services.

This our our sixth venue to join the Fringe and our second on Hollywood’s Theatre Row. It also has the distinct honor of being the closest venue to FringeHQ.

Here’s a little blurb on the Lounge from website:


The Lounge Theatre is located at 6201 Santa Monica Bld @ El Centro just one block East of Vine. The Lounge is a completely renovated 50 seat theatre. Our space is unique in that we offer a full kitchen and huge Lounge area where guests of the show can network on our comfortable couches in the Lounge while enjoying beverages before or after the theatre show. Call us for more information about rates and availability. Come see what the best on Theatre Row has to offer.

Theatre Asylum Joins the Fringe

Matthew Quinn and Theatre Asylum were amongst the very first to support us during the planning process. It is the first venue to join from that part of Hollywood’s Santa Monica blvd know as Theatre Row.

Mr. Quinn is a partner with C.A.F.E. Arts and owner/manager of both Theatre Asylum in LA and Off-Market Theatres in San Francisco. He has witnessed first-hand the benefits a Fringe can provide a city’s arts scene. Matthew has been amazingly supportive of our efforts thus far (he is on our advisory board) and we couldn’t be more grateful for his sage counsel and encouragement.

This is a fantastic space (two, actually!); I think it wins my personal honorable mention for “most comfortable seats” in Hollywood. Theatre Asylum is an ongoing host to some of the most interesting and innovative work in comedy. Check out their MySpace for more information on what’s coming up.

This is the fifth Fringe venue to sign for those keeping count. More to come!

Here’s some more information on Theatre Asylum for the curious amongst you:


This beautiful 72 seat (from Warner Brothers Private Screening Room) Venue is located on Santa Monica Blvd & Vine 0n Theatre Row in Hollywood.

It’s 1900 sq/ft with a 20 × 20 and a full inventory of lights, sound and video. Part of the Elephant Stageworks and originally called Elephant Theater Asylum, we are proud to be part of this thriving artistic community.
