Be Careful What You Wish For...

MACHINAL is a provocative play that explores the elements of human growth, desire, and survival or destruction in the grip of the consuming Machine of society. 

THE OPEN FIST is an award-winning theater company in the heart of Theater Row Hollywood, California dedicated to producing quality theater that is both timeless and relevant.  With our latest production, MACHINAL, we want to present the best possible production of which our company, designers and cast are capable.  We also want to reward the diligent and dedicated members of the company who freely give their time and commitment for the art and love of theater.  

We have gathered together an amazing director, a talented group of actors, experienced award winning designers and brilliant production support to bring you a show that will stick in your mind for years to come.  Please check back here often to see profiles of our team as we get closer to opening night.  The cast is set, the plans drawn up, sound and lighting design has been created, the costumes have been chosen and rehearsals have begun!!  For the next few weeks our dedicated company will gather to build and paint the set, re-hang the lights, setup the sound and create the WORLD OF MACHINAL.  We hope that you will help us in our quest to bring this world about in the form of living theater.

The money you provide will be transformed into many different elements.  Lumber for the set, costume rental and cleaning fees.  Paint, props, printing.  Design fees, light bulbs, material for set dressing, Hardware for hanging and software for the sound booth.  A small portion will be credited to the theater for our most dedicated and needy members of the company and this show.  Every penny will be dedicated to the show and the OPEN FIST THEATER. Your heartfelt donation will help this show be the best that it possibly can be and will allow THE OPEN FIST to continue to bring you the unforgettable experience of live theater.
