The LA Weekly Theatre Awards

Greetings, Fringers-

Every year we partner with the good folks at LA Weekly and offer participants discounted advertising and exposure through Los Angeles’ highest profile weekly paper. You may have caught our beautiful ads gracing the June issues, as well.

One of the most anticipated evenings of the arts world is the LA Weekly Theatre Awards, this year held on April 2 at 7:30 (6:30 doors) at the Avalon in Hollywood; that’s one day after the registration deadline for those of you paying attention. Tickets are a very reasonable $25 which can be purchased here.

Make sure to bring your toga because it wouldn’t be a real theatre party without a theme. In the words of Steven Leigh Morris: “The event will be a replication of the first-ever theater awards ceremony, circa 450 B.C., honoring Dionysus, god of fertility and wine.”

To make this even more Fringey for you folks, the hosts of the evening will be perennial HFF group (and winner of the 2011 Fringe comedy award) Lost Moon Radio. I am sure we will be enjoying the music of the Moon Units, the band that powered the infamous karaoke nights in the Fringe Tent.

Check out this fun slideshow from their 2011 Awards and congrats to the nominees.

We will be there having a great time…hope to see you, as well!
