The entire Los Angeles theater community is invited to support the Hollywood Fringe Festival by attending the Fringe Benefit on Thursday, May 29th at King King Nightclub in Hollywood.

You can buy your ticket here for the annual fundraiser bash, which begins at 7:00pm on Thursday, May 29th at King King (6555 Hollywood Blvd). All proceeds from the night will go toward production of the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival, L.A.’s largest celebration of the performing arts.

The fantastical circus-themed event will feature live entertainment as well as a silent auction.

Backstory:

The Hollywood Fringe Festival (HFF) in back this June for its fifth year. The lively theater and music festival has been growing since its inaugural year in 2010, when Artistic Director Ben Hill, the all-important Communications Director Stacy Jones Hill and their tireless team first carved out a space in the LA arts calendar. Their intention of becoming an annual celebration of the emerging arts and a theatrical extravaganza was met, and the highly popular fest is now approaching their fifth summer. Savvily concentrating an abundance theatrical energy within one geographical area—central Hollywood—last year saw over 200 shows presenting more than one thousand performances at over a dozen Hollywood venues. It was calculated that an astonishing 25,000 theater seats were filled. Expect one-person shows, new musicals, comedies and edgy dramas to descend on Hollywood once again.

Great news, early birds! You can start planning your attendance.

Tickets for the various shows of the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival! (#HFF14) are now available for pre-purchase.

Because it can be difficult to navigate the ‘Fringe-iverse’ and determine what shows to see, this party will kick off the Fringe season. Many participants will be in attendance hoping to meet someone just like you, so this benefit is a great opportunity to start mapping out your Fringe adventures.

Show your support by purchasing a ticket here.

In four short years, the Hollywood Fringe has become the biggest performing arts festival in Los Angeles. The 2013 Fringe hosted over 200 artistic projects with over 1000 performances in dozens of venues all over Hollywood.  The festival sold over $250,000 in ticket sales and returned every dollar to the artists and venues.  Over 35,000 seats were sold. The 2014 Fringe is already showing more than 30% growth.

The Fringe is an expensive animal… It costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to stage the HFF every year. The Festival organizers are on the proverbial hook for printing, rent, insurance, advertisements, equipment, supplies and the myriad of services and goods required to serve and support this community event.

Why not help them put a dent in those looming costs by attending a party filled with friends old and new?

Fringe On!
