About IndyFringe Theatre
Every August, IndyFringe’s signature 10-day Fringe Festival brings local, national and international theater artists together for a one-week theatre marathon of sorts. Occupying multiple venues, including Mass Ave itself, IndyFringe presents compelling avant-garde theater, dance and comedy for audiences of all types. The rest of the year is no different, as the IndyFringe Theatre welcomes local and touring groups, from kid-oriented productions to more adult-themed shows. Regular occupants like Jabberwocky, in partnership with Storytelling Arts of Indiana, bring storytellers together to tell their tales. DivaFest, launched in 2010, gives female playwrights a chance to shine. And Onyx Fest shines a spotlight on African American playwrights. Volunteers are recruited year-round.
