Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival
The 2012 annual Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival continues to offer the community a one-of-kind theatre experiences to adults and families as the longest running of its kind in the U.S.
Thousands of fans of theatre and the arts attend the 21st annual Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival. Enjoy a distinctive array of theatre, music, dance and art for all ages. Events take place north of downtown in Loch Haven Park and several local theatres.
In its 21st year, the Orlando International Theatre Festival is a much anticipated 13-day cultural event on May 16-28, 2012 with 100% of ticket sales benefiting the performing artists. All ages can enjoy the shows at several venues north of downtown Orlando: Loch Haven Park, The Lowndes Shakespeare Center, and the Orlando REP while kid-friendly shows (KID’S FRINGE) are at the Mennello Museum.
Although there are numerous family-appropriate events, the beauty of this festival is allowing the artists full artistic reign. Therefore, the programs are uncensored, but rated accordingly in four categories of audiences: Family-Friendly, General Audience, G-14, and Mature. Enjoy many free performances and events on the outdoor stage in the vendor/beer tent area. BYOV shows (Bring Your Own Venue) are randomly located in unique venues, such as bathrooms, theatre lobbies, or parking lots, throughout the festival.
Tickets can be purchased online or at the Fringe Box Office, and prices range from free to $11. Limited free parking is available within Loch Haven Park and street parking on Mills Avenue. Additional paid parking is at garages of the Orlando Science Center and Florida Hospital.
