You don't have to be a theater aficionado to appreciate the incredible, annual FIT. In fact, it's a great way to dip your toes into Dallas' thriving, underground performing arts scene. The festival's website describes the vibe as one of "creative risk taking," and that always seems to be the case. It's where you'll see envelope-pushing writing and performances by homegrown talent.

The Festival of Independent Theatres (FIT) showcases the vibrant independent theater community with a four-week run of works by local theater groups, visual art and live music. Now in its 19th year, FIT will feature 8 different one-acts presented in rotating pairs each Thursday through Sunday, July 14-Aug. 5.

Single tickets (for a two-show block) and festival passes are available online in late June, and at the door.
