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 29th season of FronteraFest at Hyde Park Theatre. 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.

Every Tuesday-Friday night through February 11, 2024 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. See this year's complete Short Fringe listings and ticket links, updated frequently. Most nights will sell out, so don't delay.

Every Saturday night through February 10 is a juried "Best of the Week" performance: these tickets go even faster, so grab your Best of Week tickets now.

The final week of the festival, February 13-17, is the juried "Best of the Fest"--with a few wild cards thrown in. These tickets go fastest of all so get your Best of Fest tickets as soon as possible.
