    FronteraFest Short Fringe

    Austin’s most beloved performance festival has returned for its 29th year, with the Short Fringe bringing a slate of five different 25-minute shows each night at the legendary Hyde Park Theatre – featuring actors, artists, poets, dancers, and performers of all types from Texas and beyond. Tonight’s lineup showcases “They Eat Sunshine Not Zebras” by Dara Murphy; the musical “Miss. Adventure” by Rachel Pallante; the juggling-infused “The Magic of Yes” by Paprika; the mental health explorations of “Treat Yourself, Stella!” by Sandy Maranto, and Raymond Abel Gutierrez’s “Latini-Duh!™: The upside-down side of the Latinoverse!” with music by Mexican Institute of Sound. – Wayne Alan Brenner

    FronteraFest

    Austin’s longest-running and most beloved performance festival returns for its 29th year! This unique collaboration between Hyde Park Theatre and ScriptWorks attracts actors, artists, poets, dancers, and performers of all types throughout Texas and beyond. (Over the past quarter-century, performers have traveled from as far as Chang Ung University in Seoul, South Korea, to perform an adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest.) FronteraFest includes two separate components: the Short Fringe (four different performances of 25 minutes each, every night) runs Jan. 16-Feb. 17 at Hyde Park Theatre; and Mi Casa es Su Teatro happens only on Sat., Feb. 10, primarily in private Austin homes. Look for the Short Fringe to thrill you with talented Fest regulars Zell Miller III, Hank Schwemmer, Jennine DOC Kreuger, Tristan Mercado, Janet Maykus and Tom Booker, Teresa Johnson and Gloria C. Adams, Collin Carrothers, Pamela Paek, and the Knuckleball Now.
    Through Feb. 17. Tue.-Sat., 8pm. $20 and up.
