Fringe Fort Myers Festival taking artist applications

By Staff | Oct 9, 2019

In partnership with the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, the Alliance for the Arts will present the first-ever Fringe Fort Myers Festival on April 22-26 and artist applications are being accepted.

Emerging and experienced artists in all disciplines are invited to apply. Categories include, but are not limited to, theatre, dance, magic, film, music, stand-up comedy, puppetry, performance art and more.

One of the great things about Fringe is accessibility for anyone to perform. The selection process will occur via a Nov. 22 lottery, where all applications will be placed in a hat and the lucky ones pulled.

Fringe Fort Myers will kick off on April 22 with the fun and frenetic Teaser Show. On April 23, full performances begin at each of the four venues, with stages at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre and Alliance for the Arts. The festival will conclude on April 26. Each performer and group is guaranteed three performances in the same venue and are given a three-hour technical rehearsal before opening.

For an artist application, visit ArtInLee.org/Fringe.

Applications must be submitted no later than Nov. 15 at 5 p.m.

Applicant artists are encouraged to hit the Florida fringe trifecta. The Tampa International Fringe will run from April 30 to May 10, while the Orlando International Fringe will run from May 12-25.
