Combined Artform Announces New HOLLYWOOD INDEPENDENT THEATER FESTIVAL – Gia On The Move
Combined Artform is partnering with artists and venues in Hollywood to launch the Hollywood Independent Theater Festival (HITFEST) opening this September 2023 at the Hudson Theaters on Santa Monica Blvd. and Stephanie Feury Studio Theater on Melrose Ave. The HITFEST is a new festival concept from the company that brought Los Angeles the “Hollywood Encore Producers’ Award” and “Pick of the Fringe,” which features the top shows of the Hollywood Fringe Festival.
The HITFEST will present at least two shows each night on various Mondays through Wednesdays. These evenings are better days to showcase work to the Hollywood entertainment industry, bookers for school events, theaters looking for shows, and other organizations who are scouting for talent. Furthermore, audiences can come see top shows and save money by buying passes for multiple shows.
The HITFEST inaugural selection of shows are from this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Upcoming months will feature shows from other festivals. September shows represent a range of ensemble and solo work, dance, comedy, music, and drama. Some of these shows will have short runs, others will just be showcased on certain evenings. New shows and venues will be added each month creating an ongoing, flexible, and scalable festival.
Ticket prices will range between $20 to $30 with discounts for senior citizens, students, and SAG/AFTRA and WGA members. Show passes are also available offering discounts on tickets for multi- show packs. See below for a listing of participating venues and shows.
