“We're thrilled to announce the 33rd Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival!” says Interim Executive Director Scott Galbraith.  “These two weeks are truly packed with exciting, new, and innovative shows that will entertain and uplift audiences, perhaps make them ponder and re-think.  After all, Fringe is never the same twice!  There are always new artists to discover, and we're always eager to explore new venues and see Orlando through the eyes of both local and visiting artists.”

Anchored at the main festival campus in Loch Haven Park, the festival features venues at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center, Orlando Family Stage and the Orlando Museum of Art, plus Fringe ArtSpace in Downtown Orlando on historic Church Street. 


BYOV’s (“Bring Your Own Venues”) this year include returning venues Renaissance Theatre Company and The Starlite Room @ Savoy and new venues CityArts and Stardust Lounge, along with various site-specific venues chosen by artists. 


The Outdoor Stage themed nights are back on a revamped lawn with more entertainment, food and beverage offerings. Digital and printed programs continue, as well as enhanced accessibility and two shuttle services between venues.

“I can’t wait to welcome the most amazing bunch of audiences, artists, staff and volunteers, share all of the surprises we have up our sleeves and see what kind of magic unfolds this year!” says Festival Producer Tempestt Halstead.  “Whether folks are joining us for the first time (or the hundredth), they’re in for a treat - a world of new venues, fresh talent and vibrant energy.  From intimate spaces to grand stages, each venue offers a unique adventure.  This year, we embrace the diverse array of artists, from seasoned veterans to rising stars, all ready to ignite the imagination.  Fringe is all about embracing the new, the different and the weird!  With this year looking semi-new with new venues and festival components, we wanted a theme to play into that.  We’ve been ‘comfy, cozy’ for the last couple of years because that is what the community needed with the pandemic shifting a lot, and we wanted to be more edgy this year.  With endless possibilities, we embrace the change and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime.  Let's do this thing and Get Fringed!”
