FronteraFest: The Place to Start
Hyde Park Theatre and ScriptWorks' annual performance festival keeps giving artists a spot to launch a stage career in Austin
Arts Story  January 7, 2016, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...FronteraFest, now entering its 23rd year, has become a tradition in Austin's annual arts calendar. For years, Hyde Park Theatre and ScriptWorks' unjuried jamboree of performances has followed the same format: a Short Fringe featuring five short pieces per evening for five weeks; a two-week Long Fringe that offers a handful of one-act and full-length shows; plus some works in unconventional locations, including a full day devoted to such works (Mi Casa Es Su Teatro)..."

"...Welcome to Christi Moore's world. For nine years now, the secretary and executive director of playwrights service organization Austin Script Works has shouldered this Atlas-like burden as the producer of FronteraFest..."

Portraits of the Artists as FronteraFest Regulars
Why they perform year after year after year
Arts Story  January 12, 2007, by Barry Pineo
"...Since 1993 the uniquely Austin event known as FronteraFest has been allowing anyone with an idea for a performance and the gumption to get it up on a stage several weeks at Hyde Park Theatre to do just that. Over 14 years, literally hundreds of writers, directors, and performers from Austin and beyond – the festival bills itself, and rightfully so, as the fringe theatre event in the Southwest – have taken advantage of that opportunity, but only a handful can qualify as FronteraFest regulars, those stalwart souls who come back year after year to pay their Short Fringe entry fee and take their chances..."

An Idiot at FronteraFest
Diary of getting a homegrown 25-minute play onto the stage for Austin's biggest annual performance festival
Arts Story  February 9, 2017, by T. Lynn Mikeska
"...I make rash decisions, I procrastinate like you wouldn't believe, and I have ideas that turn out terribly. All of this was proven thoroughly as I prepared a 25-minute piece for the 2017 edition of FronteraFest, the annual performance event at Hyde Park Theatre..."

FronteraFest 2000
The Chronicle's guide to Austin's biggest performance event.
Arts Story  January 7, 2000, by Robert Faires
"...If you had to define Austin theatre through a single event, you couldn't do better than FronteraFest, the performance jamboree hosted annually by Frontera@Hyde Park Theatre. All the qualities that distinguish theatre in the capital city can be found there: the range of expression, the passion for performance, the abundance of original writing, the desire to experiment, the willingness to put it out there no matter what it looks like, the heart..."

FronteraFest 2013
Performance jamboree's 20th brings back old faves and welcomes new stars
Arts Story  January 11, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...All it takes is a serious milestone like a 20th anniversary to make you want to get the old gang back together. That's how it goes with high school graduations, so why should performance festivals be different? FronteraFest, our annual jamboree of homegrown theatre, poetry, improvised comedy, puppetry, interpretive dance, and everything in between, hits the big 2-0 this January, and one way it's commemorating the occasion is by inviting some former Best of the Fest winners and longtime participants back to present a piece this year..."

FronteraFest 2003
It's time again for that annual performance jamboree FronteraFest, and time to mark its first decade of presenting Austin with adventuresome new theatre, comedy, dance, and spoken word by anyone with the courage or folly to take a stage.
Arts Story  January 17, 2003, by Robert Faires
"...Are you ready for the Eastern European heavy metal fans? The bickering couple and the talking cow? The virtual world of interior design and geekish attention to furniture arrangement? Are you prepared for the multidisciplinary, spoken-word, neo-soul/funk musical? Can you handle the "Interview With U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Translated Into English"? If so, hie thee to Hyde Park Theatre, where performers of all stripes are already defying death (and sometimes good sense) presenting the above spectacles and more in the 10th anniversary edition of FronteraFest! Yes, it's time again for that annual performance jamboree and time to mark its first decade of presenting Austin with adventuresome new theatre, comedy, dance, and more by anyone with the courage or folly to take a stage...."

FronteraFest
On a wet and shivering Saturday night, FronteraFest offered something, finally, to combat the chill outside: the warmth of great performers.
Arts Story  January 31, 2003, by Sarah Hepola
"...In Bar Fight, Mike Henry's poems gave us nothing less than a peek at his soul, and Rebecca Schwarz's Heat Wave charmed with a simple chat about chicken-salad sandwiches. On that nasty Saturday night, FronteraFest offered something, finally, to combat the chill outside: the warmth of great performers...."

Play brings TED Talks to 10th-century Sweden
DAILY Arts  January 29, 2019, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...I’m talking here about Shield Maiden, yes, that FronteraFest Long Fringe show in which a TED Talk sort of gig gets an extremely retro variant via 10th-century Sweden. In which one Ingrid Larsdottir, motivational warrior, reveals the untold truth of Viking women warriors as she seeks new recruits...."

"...After the Christmas wrappings are thrown out, the Kwanzaa kente is folded up, the Chanukah dreidel stops its spinning, the Yule log ashes are discarded, the Festivus grievances are aired, and the new year has been rung in, Austin performers and performance enthusiasts gear up for a second round of celebrating and events.
