The Hollywood Fringe Announces Dates for 2012


The third annual Hollywood Fringe Festival will take place June 14-24, 2012 with a week of previews scheduled beforehand (June 7-12). The festival is an 11-day explosion of theatre performances, solo artists, dancers, experimental art, comedy, films, and cabaret which sold over 20,000 tickets its second year. Artist payout more than doubled from 2010 to 2011 with artists receiving over $87,000 in 2011. The not-for-profit festival has established itself as both a gathering place for artists and a unique entertainment experience for Los Angeles culture-seekers.

All Fringe programs started in 2011-- Fringe Film, Fringe Family, and Fringe Cabaret-- will all return in 2012, as will the Opening Night Gala, Award Ceremony and Closing Night Party hosted at Fringe Central (the location for 2012's Fringe Central will be announced in January).

The event is open and non-curated; any artistic group able to book a venue within the festival's boundaries may register. Traditional theatre spaces as well as found/DIY spaces are encouraged. Venues can list their space on the festival's website starting Nov. 15.

Registration for the Hollywood Fringe opens February 1st. Potential participants should be aware that registration for the festival is a three-step process, and the first two steps can be completed before February. The first step is the creation of a project page on the festival's site. Second, the project must be booked at a participating venue within the festival's boundaries. Only then can projects register for the Fringe.

Participants may attempt to book a venue that has already signed up, or they may bring their own venue. All registrations complete before April 1 will receive placement in the Festival's Guide, which will be distributed throughout Hollywood and greater Los Angeles starting May 2012.
