NEW STYLE-SAME FIT
The 22nd Annual Festival of Independent Theatres will be presented for on-demand viewing, October 8-31, 2020.
The 22nd Festival of Independent Theatres has had to change its style, but the FIT is as perfect as ever. This annual mainstay of the DFW performing arts scene switches to a virtual, on-demand format this year and will be held October 8-31, 2020.
Six performing arts groups offer audiences something for everyone and, for the first time ever, viewing on-demand and from the comfort of home. One of the most beloved features of the area's longest-running theatre festival still remains: Two show blocks are available for one low ticket price, so viewers can try out something new, as well as festival passes so they can explore it all.
This year's line-up features original works, dance, comedy, drama and more—all performed by some of FIT audiences' favorite artists. The festival includes the following performances:
Audacity Theatre Lab presents Daylan Hillis in Space
