Under the snow and palm trees this weekend, we had several exciting things happening in our venues.
First up: Auditions!
The creative team of Truly Outrageous: An Unofficial Jem and the Holograms Parody Musical held auditions at The Madnani Theater on Saturday. They’ll be performing at studio/stage during the Hollywood Fringe Festival this June. This fun and campy homage to the 80s favorite, Jem and the Holograms is being developed and written by Brandie June with music by Becca McGlynn and directed by Jim Blanchette. We’re thrilled to have this powerhouse creative team in our venues this summer! Tickets go on sale in May, and they’re sure to go fast! Check out their show page for more details.
Meanwhile, at studio/stage…
Yesterday, the Habesha Film Association celebrated their third anniversary with a screening of four short films made by their members, a panel discussion and networking mixer. This was the first time the HFA has held an event at studio/stage, but it sounds like it certainly won’t be the last!
Skypilot will present the Skypilot One Act Festival from March 23 – April 2 and Playground Renaissance Theatre Company will present Much Ado About Nothing from April 13 – 16th. More info on both productions soon!
This week we have lots of Fringe tours scheduled as well! studio/stage is very close to selling out, but we still have plenty of great schedule options at all of the venues. If you’re producing a Fringe show this year check out our Fringe pages and contact us to schedule a tour.

Now for some BIG NEWS!
The StageCrafts are now partnering with Stagey Technologies, the fantastic ticketing platform that powers the Hollywood Fringe and offering a FREE ticketing service to all productions in our venues! We used this platform ourselves for our production of A Very DIE HARD Christmas this past December, and from a producer’s point of view it was really user friendly and convenient. We’re so excited to be able to offer this service to our clients and their patrons! Check it out at events.thestagecrafts.com!
