Atlanta, GA, April 16, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The first annual Atlanta Fringe Festival, scheduled for May 9-13, will be a five-day extravaganza featuring 27 eclectic shows from artists across the country.
What is Atlanta Fringe? It is a performing arts festival that follows the “fringe” mission to provide an accessible, unjuried, uncensored outlet for all manner of theatrical work. Joining an international circuit of such festivals, Atlanta Fringe is dedicated to showcasing original, nontraditional work that celebrates diverse and multi-cultural artistic expression and that pushes audiences to consider new perspectives.
Fringe’s inaugural festival will feature artists from the Atlanta area and ten other states. The genres of work range from solo performances and spoken word to modern dance and cabaret, as well as a mix of comedic and dramatic theatre productions. Content ratings range from family friendly to general audiences and mature audiences – so there’s something for everyone “on the fringe.” Learn more at http://atlantafringe.org/home/schedule/show-schedule-by-date/.
Festival venues are Beacon Dance, COREDance, Horizons School, and WonderRoot in Decatur, and The Mask Center in Atlanta.
In addition to these 27 performances, Atlanta Fringe is also hosting Bring-Your-Own-Venue shows, as well as Fringe Radio and audio performances.
Tickets will be $10 per performance at the door, plus a one-time purchase of a $3 Fringe button. Multi-show passes are on sale now. Visit http://atlantafringe.org/home/buy-tickets/. Access to the audio performance archive will be $2 and available for purchase soon.
