Legend has it that the concept of a "fringe theater" was born in 1947 when eight theater groups, unable to gain admission to the prestigious Edinburgh International Festival, performed anywhere they could. Today hundreds of Fringe Theater Festivals and thousands of Fringe Theater companies exist throughout the world.
In 2011, Fringe Theater Key West joined those ranks! We follow the tradition of fringe theatrical troupes by being a “point of entry” into the theater world for people who used to do theater, always wanted to do theater, are looking forward to the new experience of doing theater! Our vision is to create theater that is intriguing, diverse, and affordable.
We hope you will find a way to become a part of the Fringe experience.
