Celebrations are in order, as the Festival of Independent Theatres is beginning their fifteenth year of showcasing new talent and premiering new works. Over those years more than 600 local actors, directors and designers have presented their skills, and almost fifty world premieres by more than twenty-five local playwrights has kept FIT on the forefront of theatre festivals nationwide. Blending one-act local plays with classics from writers such as Carol Churchill, Horton Foote, David Mamet and Tennessee Williams, the festival encourages innovative risk taking, and the sold out audiences year after year is proof they are doing something right.

“Festival of Independent Theatres runs four weeks and shows one-act plays running sixty minutes or less. FIT was created in 1999 as an outlet for smaller companies without a permanent performance space to give them an opportunity to produce seldom seen, new or avant-garde works. FIT exists to promote awareness and growth of Dallas area theatre through collaboration, participation and cultivation”.
