Get ready for the Capital Fringe Festival, a festival that will be one of growth and creativity with more than 145 inspiring and eclectic productions that are gearing up for the non-main stream Festival–- exceeding 2013’s 130 productions.
Dipping into the Festival’s future, Fringe will have three venues at the Atlas Performing Arts Center on H Street NE. Eighteen days of creative and uninhibited performances. Fringe is for all!
The Atlas will be showcasing a total of 29 productions, all full of adventure, diversity and uniqueness. Expect to see productions such as;
- 13 Men; a fun, lighthearted comedy about the DC dating scene.
- The Inaugural Election for President of Mrs. Jacobson’s Sixth Grade Class; an interactive, all-ages comedy allows the audience to examine the absurdities of modern day elections through the eyes of children.
- We’ve Come to Play; a production by new contemporary dance company ArasDance. “We’ve Come to Play” is an ode to the company making their footprints in the DC dance scene with their first full length program.
