Calling all Production Companies

Greetings, all. I hope everyone in our great arts community is having a wonderful Summer. Everyone works so hard (for so little money) throughout the year, I hope you are all taking a break and soaking up some sun.

I want to touch base to let everyone know that plans for our Fringe Festival are rolling right along and we are all hard at work on this project.

It’s great news to hear that my home town’s Fringe is having a banner year. I am always excited when I see an arts company succeed. Renews my faith that the dedication of the few towards a greater culture and lifestyle is worth the blood, sweat, and tears. My love of Fringe Festivals (really, my love of all arts festivals) is that all the experimental artists out there get a chance to show their work to a ready audience.

We are at a juncture in Hollywood Fringeland where we’d like to start meeting face to face with all you producers, directors, and artists who think a Fringe Festival in Los Angeles is a good idea. We got ideas, we don’t have all the ideas. Got ideas? Well, go on and drop me a line at benhill (at) hollywoodfringe.org.

Also wanted to point you all to blog post by Need Theater’s Matt Wells…an interested round up of theatre related blogs. His company has a noble mission indeed: Expanding the role of theater in society.
