Hit the Lights! has gathered notable credentials and performance opportunities since our start in 2013: well received and sold out showings at Ars Nova (currently Company In Residence), FringeNYC, Dixon Place, The PIT, La Mama, and The Hive. They’ve appeared around the country at the Know Theater of Cincinnati, Ohio, The Ritz and Jungle Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Portland Stage Co. in Portland, Maine. HTL! is not only committed to excellence in performance, but also in education. We’ve led a series of wildly successful workshops for both students and professionals in our signature aesthetic of Less Talk/More Rock, including higher education workshops at Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and Williams Collage.
HTL!s production, WHALES at The Hive was nominated for the 2016 New York Innovative Theater Award for Outstanding Original Production, Outstanding Original Music, and Outstanding Original Design (puppetry). WHALES also won the Artist Pick of the Fringe for our 2018 production at The Ritz in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their 2017 production of DUNGEON at Jungle Theater in Minneapolis won the Editor's Pick of Minnesota Fringe 2017 from the Twin Cities Arts Reader as well as the Audience Pick of the Fringe.
