Let the curtains open and the show begins at The Old Fitz Theater. We invite you to come and join us to witness outstanding performances. As they say, sit back, relax, and enjoy the performances brought to you by our talented theater artists.
The Old Fitz Theater was built in the 1990s by artists who truly loved their craft. They tried to veer away from commercial theater performances by giving independent thespians, playwrights, directors, and crew a chance to feature their work on the stage. Through the years, it has become a sacred ground for independent theater artists and a respected venue where great performers are tested and seasoned over time. And in their rawness and lack of commercial influence, artists are able to show their true passion and dedication to their craft. In turn, the audience is treated to moving and outstanding performances worthy of awards and recognition.
The Old Fitz Theater is currently managed by Andrew Henry as the Artistic Director, Vanessa Wright as the Executive Producer, Shell McKenzie as Venue Manager, Matthew Cheetham as Associate Producer, and Iain Sinclair as Associate Artist. Together, they hold the helm to ensure that audiences get nothing but the best theater experience when they come and watch the shows.
