Expanding KIDS FRINGE
After a positive response to our pilot Kids Fringe in 2015, we are expanding our programming from three to five family friendly shows and a bonus Kids Fringe Day in a local park in the summer.
Reimagining TEEN FRINGE
We are expanding our Teen Volunteer program to further tailor the experience to each participant. Interested teens can continue to work with Kids Fringe, but could also help with other aspects of festival production -- assisting with front of house, stage management and more.
CFF is run entirely by volunteer staffers, some of whom receive a small stipend in exchange for their hundreds of hours of work each year. We continue to strive to build a sustainable model for our nonprofit in order to make working with Chicago Fringe a rewarding opportunity to both improve the Festival and also grow professionally.
Hosting a SPRING Benefit
The Benefit during the festival has always created a conundrum for festival-goers who want to support the Festival but also see shows. This year we will be producing a whole new benefit on May 19, 2016 that will alleviate this problem and give us all something to look forward to in between Fringes.
