As an annual participant in the Hollywood Fringe Festival, LA-based theatre company Theatre Unleashed (TU) consistently stages phenomenal performances that span most every genre while never wavering in their quality or spirit.  Encompassing everything from westerns (Round Rock) to sexual politics and gender relations (Sleeping Around), TU remains a mainstay in the LA theatre community by providing a solid platform for talented creators to hone their craft and entertain audiences through a variety of artistic endeavors.  This year, the ensemble returned to the Fringe Festival with the 2015 hit, A Feast of Snackdemonstrating that even musical theatre is no match for the intrepid members of Theatre Unleashed.

Every year, the Hollywood Fringe Festival provides countless writers, directors, actors, choreographers, and other talented individuals in the theatre community with the opportunity to hone their craft and, perhaps more simply, to do what they love.  Creators of all experience levels take the stage to experiment, to take chances, to make their debut, to revel in the creative process, and - in some occurrences - to truly leave a lasting impact on their colleagues, the audience, and the community as a whole.  Having recently attended a performance of the one-woman show, My Big Fat Blonde Musical, I can say with utter certainty that this show is what the Fringe Festival was made for: to provide a platform for rising stars to shine.  While the show may appear to be a musical comedy that pokes fun at Hollywood and the entertainment machine, it transcends mere folly to stand as a glowing example of female empowerment and body positivity.

In this week's installment of #GeeksCare: How You Can Help, Fanbase Press would like to highlight Meghan Caves who is actively working to raise awareness about Alzheimer's Disease and the Alzheimer's Association.  Each year, the Alzheimer's Association hosts The Longest Day, a team event that raises funds and awareness for the organization.  For The Longest Day this year, Caves will join Saving Throw for a 24-hour role-playing game fundraising event, with the proceeds from the event going to the Alzheimer's Association   In the following interview, I chat with Caves about her efforts to raise awareness about Alzheimer's, how she became involved with Saving Throw, how viewers can watch, donate to, and interact with the 24-hour role-playing event, and more!

LA-based production company AwesomeTech Industries has joined Hollywood Fringe Festival this year with a new and improved production of Wheel of Invention, a dark, dystopian comedy that gives audiences a first-hand look into the twisted fictional theme park, Weintraubsylvania, and the demented mind of its creator, Herman J. Weintraub.  Wheel of Invention invites visitors to explore Weintraubsylvania through a guided tour, painting the picture of a troubled visionary who dared to dream big, creating a disturbing theme park full of bizarre attractions with a strong, underlying theme of anti-authoritarianism.  With a stylized playbill designed to mimic a theme park brochure, a personalized tour of the park, and the chance to see several attractions, Wheel of Invention delivers a strangely unique and thought-provoking experience for theatregoers.

North Air Entertainment, a production company designed to develop and produce entertaining properties for TV and film, recently made its first foray into the comic book world with Shake the Lake #1.  Part Lords of Dogtown and part American Pie, the comic book series dives deep into the sport of wakeboarding - a new territory for comic books to be sure - and focuses on the wild and raucous activities of a handful of its participants as they hit the waves and navigate a path for an endless summer.
