On behalf of everyone at Fanboy Comics, I am excited to share that Sci-Fest LA has announced its 2015 lineup for its 2nd Annual One-Act Festival! Sci-Fest LA is Hollywood’s first one-act play festival that celebrates all things science fiction, and it will return for its sophomore year from May 5-31, 2015. Co-founded by veteran Los Angeles theatre producers Michael Blaha and Lee Costello and actor David Dean Bottrell (Boston Legal), Sci-Fest LA’s mission is to produce an annual festival of new, beautifully realized, and visually compelling sci-fi one-acts featuring many well-known actors from beloved sci-fi and fantasy franchises.
Don’t forget to check out Sci-Fest LA’s Indiegogo campaign, which is currently running to raise the necessary funds for the festival.
Please see Sci-Fest LA’s full press release and one act lineup below.
