Sci-Fest L.A. Returns May 7th!

GameStop, Inc.

11117880_10153241042794941_1860701977_nLast May, SCI-FEST LA: The Los Angeles Science Fiction One-Act Play Festival debuted, bringing 2 rotating evenings of scary, hilarious and mind-bending short plays to Los Angeles starring an incredible cast of actors famous for their work on such iconic TV franchises as STAR TREK, THE X-FILES, LOST, STARGATE: UNIVERSE, HEROES, TRUE BLOOD and FRINGE.  The Fest was such a success (with packed houses & great press) that this year, we’re producing a whole new slate of show including new, knock-out adaptations of Neil Gaiman’s “The Case of Four and Twenty Blackbirds”and Clive Barker’s acclaimed short story, “The Departed,” (sent to us by Mr. Barker himself).  We’re tremendously excited about bringing all these new stories of time travel, ghostly obsessions and intergalactic journeys to life – LIVE ON STAGE!  www.SCI-FESTLA.COM


Sci-Fest LA is the only festival of its kind on the planet.  This year, in addition to our stage shows, we have initiated two new Sci-Fi short fiction contests: THE ROSWELL AWARD (for adult Sci-Fi writers from around the globe) and THE TOMORROW PRIZE (for LA County High School Students).   All funds raised at the presentation ceremony for the Tomorrow Prize will be awarded to the winner’s high school science department. Info:  Last year, we floated astronauts in space and figured out how to make an live actor’s face grow out of an elastic wall.  This year, we have to create a giant space bug, create a renegade cyborg and rip somebody’s head off.  We can’t wait!


The festival runs from May 7 – May 31, 2015.  All performances will be at the beautiful ACME Theatre, 135 N. LaBrea Avenue, Los Angeles (Just south of Beverly Blvd.)


In response to our out-of-town fans’ request, Sci-Fest LA has created INVASION WEEKEND (AKA “Memorial Day Weekend”) where ALL of the Sci-Fest LA shows will play over a two-day period (Sat, May 23rd & Sun, May 24th).  See attached schedule.

Please note:  We are happy to accommodate organizations that would like to purchase a block of tickets so that their members can attend a specific performance as a group.  We have two great evenings of mind-bending Sci-Fi entertainment to choose from.  Our line up can be seen on our website:  or by clicking this link:!2015-lineup/c67l   For groups of 10 or more we are able to offer $5.00 off each individual ticket and also offer members of your group a 25% discount on dinner entrees at Amalfi (the wonderful Italian restaurant next door).  Street parking is available and there is a valet right next to the theatre.

Please see the attached document that features our May 2015 line-up and a calendar of when the various shows are playing.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email or call me.  See contact info below.  We look forward to seeing you in May!  Please check the 90 second video below.  It’s very fun!  Also check out the incredible line-up of talent currently scheduled to appear live on stage at our festival!
