Baby Bob Saget, by Linzy Beltran, Aaron Walther, AJ McKeon, Lindsey Moringy, Frank Netscher, Laura de la Fuente (Baby Bob Saget).
Baby Bob Saget features performers who have trained at comedy institutions from Chicago to New York to Austin, and includes both students and seasoned performers from ColdTowne Theater and The New Movement Theater. Each show begins by randomly selecting one of Bob Saget’s actual tweets. Inspired by that tweet, Baby Bob Saget creates a thoughtful, witty, high-energy improv show that will leave the audience asking themselves “Is Full House on Netflix? What does Adult Bob Saget look like?”

Macbeth, written by William Shakespeare, additional lyrics and music by Alex Garza.
This solo performance explores the classical text of William Shakespeare's dark tragedy. Alex Garza uses the script, movement, and songs to re-invent this 500 year-old tale of murder, revenge, and the battle for power. All the timeless characters including Lady Macbeth, Banquo, the Witches, and Macduff return for their reincarnation onto the FronteraFest stage. This 25-minute performance is a preview of Alex's Garza longer production to be premiered at the Dougherty Arts Center in Summer 2017.

Berserker, by Kari Floren.
Teenager Olga Larson has finally begun to fit in at school, after she and her gay father moved from Minneapolis to Florida. Olga’s blog for the school paper has transformed her from a funny talking, slightly overweight outsider into an influential trendsetter. But when Olga’s new-found popularity is about to be snatched away, she finds solace through a surprising link to her Norwegian heritage. Olga appears to get her confidence back, but in fact she slips into a darker reality. Featuring Sarah Alessandro, Lowell Bartholomee, Van Tracy and directed by Michael McKenzie. 

The Horror Show, by Turning Tricks With The Darlings.
In an homage to the horror film genre, magicians Jack Darling and Christine Darling take their audience on a ridiculous and spine-tingling journey, sure to make the audience scream! 

O, Sea! by Brianna Susan Smith. 
O, Sea! is solo performance piece from multidisciplinary artist Brianna Susan Smith utilizing dance, music, ritual, storytelling, and sensory experience to explore issues of violence against women. The performance is built on a mix of ritual theatre, ancient mythology, contemporary digital techniques and personal experiences with emotional and sexual abuse. O, Sea! connects us to something ancient to create space for individual experience and collective discovery.
