Sponsored by Flat Tire Theatre Company


The mission of Flat Tire Theatre Company is to develop new works, reimagine familiar stories, and present eclectic yet relatable theatre about the necessity to keep moving forward no matter what. Flat Tire is looking for First Year Fringe Participant shows that share in this mission for The “Spare Tire Award”. Flat Tire is also looking for shows that run on the collective power and energy of its ensemble to tell these stories of perseverance- whether it is through their art or the artists themselves. The “Spare Tire Award” is looking for 1st year Fringe participants who are, just as they once were, starting their Fringe journey in hopes to assist them in continuing to create their art- and provide the “spare tire” on this adventure of creating art in LA and in the Hollywood Fringe Festival for years to come.
