Short Fringe @ Hyde Park Theatre

Since 1993, Frontera has turned its stage over to Austinites for five solid weeks of unjuried, uncensored theatrical adventures of 25 minutes or less. That tradition continues this year as the newly renamed Short Fringe.

As before, all Short Fringe performances are at Hyde Park Theatre, 511 W. 43rd, at 8pm. All tickets are $10. Discounted passes are available.

Performances are likely to sell out early, so reservations are strongly recommended. For tickets to any FronteraFest 2000 event, call 479-PLAY (7529).

The following schedule for the FronteraFest 2000 Short Fringe is tentative and subject to change at the artists' discretion:
