What is Atlanta Fringe? It is a performing arts festival whose mission is to provide an accessible, unjuried, uncensored outlet for all manner of theatrical work. Joining an international circuit of such festivals, Atlanta Fringe is dedicated to showcasing original, nontraditional work that celebrates diverse and multi-cultural artistic expression and that pushes audiences to consider new perspectives.
Festival goers can get the best value by pre-purchasing 5-Show, 10-Show, Weekend, or All Access passes. Not only is there a price break when you buy a pass, each pass also includes one Fringe button! Single tickets will be $10 per performance at the door, cash only, plus a one-time purchase of a $3 Fringe button.
Fringe’s inaugural festival will feature artists from the Atlanta area and ten other states. The genres of work range from solo performances and spoken word to modern dance and cabaret, as well as a mix of comedic and dramatic theatre productions. Content ratings range from family friendly to general audiences and mature audiences – so there’s something for everyone “on the fringe.” Learn more at http://atlantafringe.org/home/schedule/show-schedule-by-date/.
