About the Fringe

Dates for the 2011 Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival (the 20th annual) are May 18-30.

Here is the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival’s own description of what it’s all about:

The Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival is a 12-day festival that is founded on the concept of offering 100% unjuried, 100% uncensored, 100% accessible theatre, music, dance, art and madness to all types and ages, where 100% of the box-office ticket sales go directly back to the artists within the Fringe. The Orlando Fringe is the longest-running US Fringe festival. The mission of the Orlando Fringe is to provide an accessible, affordable outlet that draws diverse elements of the community together and inspires creative excellence through the arts.

The Fringe is held in beautiful Loch Haven Park, just north of downtown Orlando, at Princeton Street and Mills Avenue. The shows are in various theaters at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center, Orlando Repertory Theatre and some outdoor or ad-hoc sites; most of the venues are identified by colors May 18-30. Box-office hours on weekdays are 4 p.m.-midnight; on weekends, 10 a.m.-midnight.
