FringeNext Application

Cincy Fringe presents 200+ performances of 40+ productions as part of our Primary Lineup and among those productions are a small number of FringeNext offerings. Conceived, written, directed, performed, and produced entirely by local high school-aged artists, FringeNext represents the future of theatre by giving these younger artists a chance to flex their theatrical voices in an uninhibited and unique setting.

FringeNext productions are treated just like everyone else, requiring approval from our jury and, if accepted, receiving up to 5 performances and an opportunity to walk away with the FringeNext Audience Pick of the Fringe Award (which now includes an Encore performance on the last day of Fringe).

Before applying, you're required to review the Cincy Fringe Handbook of Information so you know exactly what you're getting into. We've made some significant changes this year, so even the most veteran of applicants will need to brush up on all the ins and outs of producing at our Festival.
