The Free Fringe

Buy Tickets

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the Austin improv scene is bursting with creativity.

There are hundreds of performers, and every single one of them is prone to saying things like “Wouldn’t it be crazy if…?” or “I just had the most insane idea.”

This is where those dreams go, not to die, but to live gloriously on the stage for one night only.

Every week will be dramatically different.

There could be shows with improvisers tied up in rope, 50 performers onstage, blindfolded actors, improvising dogs, or 1000 other things.

THE FREE FRINGE IS FREE.  FOREVER.

Reserve your tickets in advance to guarantee yourself a spot.

UPCOMING INSANITY:

 

 

Fancy Nancy and Plain Jane, produced by Kaci Beeler

Two unlikely sisters, Fancy Nancy and Plain Jane, are as opposite as they come. Nancy has a luxurious life as a famous actress, a rich and eccentric starlet of the stage and screen, while Jane enjoys her days making less than minimum wage and as little noise as possible as a Librarian’s assistant, counting the seconds until her next herbal tea break. Will Jane ever take on a more exciting life? Will Nancy ever settle down?

Only one way to find out…TONIGHT in Fancy Nancy and Plain Jane.

Something involving Theo Daley, produced by Kenny Madison

Kenny Madison is devising some masterful piece of showmanship somehow involving Theo Daley.
