The 11th Annual Atlanta Fringe Festival will take place June 5-11, at venues in Little Five Points, East Atlanta and the Old Fourth Ward. And tickets for all are now on sale.
The 2023 festival roster will feature 28 groups from nine states and Australia, with the week-long theatre event boasting performances in live theatre, improv, puppetry, storytelling, magic shows, free kids programming and more.
Among the Atlanta-based performers taking part is puppetry by Then What, clowning by Couch House Collective and comedy by Merry Cat Productions. Out-of-town acts include up-and-coming artist suhREEtah, who is bringing her Kennedy Center award-winning one-woman show.
There’s also the benefit show, Five/5ths of Ghostbusters, hosted by Mark Kendall, which will see five performance groups come together to re-tell the classic movie, Ghostbusters—resulting in a hilarious genre mash-up. The show runs at 7:30 p.m. June 5 at 7 Stages Theatre in Atlanta.
Those interested in Atlanta Fringe can get a sneak-peak of some of the great acts taking part at a Preview Party at 7 p.m., June 7 at 7 Stages Theatre, which will offer three-minute previews of all 28 ticketed productions.
