WHO: 53 performance groups from Indiana, U.S.A. and the world. WHAT: More than 270 live theatre performances in 10 days, plus fine arts, films, live music, street performers, and other outrageous outbursts of off-beat theatrical fun. Tickets are $l0 maximum, shows last an hour and there is something for all ages! Theatres are within walking distance of each other.
WHEN: August 21-30, 2009 WHERE: Six venues in the Massachusetts Avenue Cultural District.
WHY: Because it's the best way to support independent performers, new ideas, and artistic freedom and have a fabulously fun time! 100% of ticket sales go to the performers! Show descriptions and times are listed individually on indyarts.org and at www.indyfringe.org/shows.php
In addition to our diverse offering of shows, we've also got lot of great live music and performances at our free Outdoor Stage, and we'll have buskers roaming the streets to entertain you in unexpected places and ways. Keep an eye out for musicians, magicians, and other random acts with crazy costumes and skills. Shop at the eclectic boutiques on Mass Ave or enjoy one of the independently owned and operated bars and restaurants that make Mass Ave one of the most unique destinations in Indianapolis.
