Event Info


Studio C Artists is proud to present their next series of one acts… IN THE KITCHEN. This series of brand new short plays is a collaboration of 4 producers, 4 directors, 8 writers, and 23 actors and is comprised of 8 plays that all take place in a kitchen setting. The theme of this series is gossip… because IN THE KITCHEN is “Where The Food Is Hot And The Gossip Is Hotter!” The shows cover a wide variety of topics including family heritage, romance, coming out, signing God up for Facebook, and even a one night stand with Batman! There is a nice balance of dramas and comedies.

This series is also being entered as a participant in the Hollywood Fringe Festival.  The festival runs from June 12-29, 2014, along Theatre Row in Hollywood, CA.  Awards are given out to shows in various categories.  PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL TICKETS FOR THE FRINGE PERFORMANCES (ALL JUNE SHOWINGS) ARE ALSO AVAILABLE THROUGH THE HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FESTIVAL BOX OFFICE.
