WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD Premieres Live At The Hollywood Fringe

2Cents Theatre's immersive offshoot Loose Change has announced the World Premiere of their new show, Welcome to the Neighborhood written by Scott Golden and directed by Kristen Boulé. The show will feature seventeen performances during the 2021 Hollywood Fringe Festival running from August 14th-August 28th, 2021 at The Anthony Mendl Workshop located at 905 Cole Ave in Los Angeles.

In the spring of 1953, after an errant nuclear missile test off the coast of California, residents of Los Angeles were given a choice: evacuate Southern California for the foreseeable future or retreat into their own personal underground bunkers until the worst of the fallout subsides. Over fifteen months later, the government has given the "all clear" and folks have started to emerge from their protective subterranean shelters to resume their lives. Summer is here, birds are finally resuming their migratory patterns and Bob and Cindy Nelson want to invite you to their 7th annual (technically 8th) 4th of July Celebration BBQ! Come meet your new neighbors, bring your appetite and enjoy the freedom that comes with living back above ground!

Welcome to the Neighborhood is an outdoor immersive experience. All shows will be live in-person, not streamed. For all in-person performances at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, patrons will need to present proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative COVID-19 test (within 72 hours) along with a photo ID. Food and drink will be offered free of charge with each ticket.
