Theatre from the Edge

"The fringe theater event of the Southwest!" 
-Austin American Statesman

That's right: it's time to heat up  your winter nights again, with the historic 25th season of FronteraFest at Hyde Park Theatre. Silver jubilee! The Short Fringe, the Long Fringe, BYOV, or Mi Casa--as always and ever, FronteraFest is five weeks of alternative, offbeat, new, and just plain off-the-wall fringe theatre. Too bad there's no actual way to expect the unexpected, because that is your only hope.

FronteraFest is produced in collaboration with ScriptWorks, a group dedicated to supporting emerging playwrights and developing new dramatic works.



The Short Fringe
January 16 - February 17, 2018
at Hyde Park Theatre

Every night we present a new, unjuried bill of four or five plays no longer than 25 minutes each. Brilliant monologues? Plays in progress? Comedy improv? Cabaret singers? Avant-garde dance? Short films? Multimedia? We've seen it all. 

Every Saturday night is a juried "Best of the Week" performance, and the last week, February 13-17, is the juried "Best of the Fest"--with a few wild cards thrown in. A complete schedule, updated regularly, will be available here as the festival approaches.

Soon all FronteraFest 2018 tickest will be available, but right now you can get Best of Week and Best of Fest tickets today--while they last (they do go fast).


PARTICIPANTS: We're full up now--but we're starting the waiting list, and in past years, most people on that list DO get in to the festival..
