Hollywood Fringe Builds on Its Success

Hollywood Fringe Builds on Its Success

The Hollywood Fringe Festival is getting longer. The 2013 theater expo will run June 13–30, with a week of previews leading up to opening curtain.

That’s a week longer than the previous three years, organizers announced Thursday.

Festival organizers, who say they have a “come-one-come-all” mentality, are hoping to improve on the 25,000 tickets sold in 2012, which generated some $200,000 for artists and venues.

“This supportive community is part of the reason our attendance has increased dramatically from year to year,” Ben Hill, the festival’s director, said in a statement. 

“By adding an additional week for Fringe 2013, we hope that we can provide a wider range of entertainment for audiences while also welcoming more producing groups into our already-diverse pool of performing artists.”

Interested in participating? The first workshops to assist venues will be held Jan. 17 at Theatre Asylum. Registration opens Feb. 1 and closes April 1.

Organizers say the event is “open and non-curated” meaning that “any artistic group able to book a venue within the festival’s boundaries.”

The website has more information for performers, venues and volunteers.
