Opportunity: FronteraFest 2013 Applications Available via Hyde Park Theatre

FronteraFest 2013 runs January 15 - February 16, 2013. Applications and information now available at

FronteraFest 2013 Austin TXThat's right: it's time to heat up your winter nights again, with the holy-smokes-this-is-momentous 20th anniversary season of FronteraFest at Hyde Park Theatre (typically one gives emeralds on the 20th, hint hint). The Short Fringe, the Long Fringe, BYOV, or Mi Casa--as always and ever, FronteraFest is five weeks of alternative, offbeat, new, and just plain off-the-wall fringe theatre. Too bad there's no actual way to expect the unexpected, because that is your only hope.

FronteraFest is produced in collaboration with ScriptWorks, a group dedicated to supporting emerging playwrights and developing new dramatic works.

The Short Fringe

January 15 - February 16, 2013 at Hyde Park Theatre

Every night we present a new bill of four or five plays no longer than 25 minutes each. Brilliant monologues? Plays in progress? Comedy improv? Cabaret singers? Avant-garde dance? Short films? Multimedia? We've seen it all.

Every Saturday night is a juried "Best of the Week" performance, and the last week, February 12-16, is the juried "Best of the Fest"--with a few wild cards thrown in. A complete schedule, updated regularly, will be available here as the festival approaches.

PARTICIPANTS: Get your application in PDF format turned in right this second, or at least by November 1, 2012. (Seriously, we give out slots on a first-come, first-served basis, so don't delay.) The fee is $50, but there's a $10 discount if we receive your application by October 1, 2012. Print it out, fill it out, sign it, and mail it to us with your wee check.

The Long Fringe
January 21 - February 3 at Salvage Vanguard Theater
