About the Company
The company behind the Hollywood Fringe Festival was founded in January 2005 with a singular mission: Produce new and provocative works by undiscovered artists for benefit of the community.
Our inaugural production was The Hatchery Festival in Washington DC. Its mission to introduce new works was widely received as a critical injection of vigor into the community’s literary culture. The playwrights underwent an extensive dramaturgical workshop process to improve their plays, and prepare them for production. In recognition of our efforts towards community enrichment, we were awarded a grant from the DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities.
In June 2010, The Hollywood Fringe Festival launched its inaugural festival, filling over 17,000 seats in over 30 different venues throughout central Hollywood. We featured 186 distinct showswith over 800 performances. Approximately 10% of our festival was international with one third of all participants coming from out-of-state
The 2014 Festival debuts on June 12 in Hollywood, CA.
