The annual IndyFringe Theatre Festival returns August 19-September 5 with a revamped format to showcase local and Midwest talent while providing a safe theatre-going experience.

Departing from the typical non-stop pace of the 10-day festival, this year’s fest will be spread out over three extended weekends with performances running Thursday through Sunday. 

At this moment of time when we all crave an escape, moments of joy and catharsis, audiences can expect the mix of comedy, drama, dance, cabaret, magic and unexpected surprises that they have come to love at the IndyFringe Festival. 

All venues will be in the Mass Ave Cultural Arts District, including The Basile Theatre and the Play Ground at IndyFringe, The District Theatre, The Athenaeum, and The Oasis at the Murat.  

Forty productions have been confirmed with more to be announced. These productions will be created by more than 280 performers and production staff - for many this will be the return to the stage after a year of not performing. As always, 80% of the box office will be returned to the performers.
