What is the New England Fringe Festival? Fringe to your heart's content with theater, music, stand-up, improvisation, performance art and who knows what else will decide to get their fringe on in New England's fifth annual fringe festival.
What's a Fringe Favorite? Glad you asked. A fringe festival is a collection of performances and performers that are on the fringe - they may be independently produced, they may be soloists, they may simply be on the fringe in terms of content. The audience chooses their favorite production by vote and the winner receives cash. Cool, huh?
What's the Producer's Award? The Producer's Award is given to a performance we simply want to recognize, among the many, many talented performers in the Fringe, as a great production. We invite them to return to the NEFF next year as our guests. Who are you? Atlantis Playmakers produces the NEFF each year. We're a New England theater company committed to bringing unusual plays to the stage, and the stage to unusual places. You can learn more about us at www.AtlantisPlaymakers.com.
