Fringe announces virtual plans


Posted by Bob Evans


Dear Bob
The resiliency of our KC artists and the generosity of our audiences during these challenging times have been an inspiration to all of us at KC Fringe. Although we are eager to get back to live in-person events, in the interest of everyone’s welfare, we will again be a Virtual Festival this year.
Summer isn’t the same without the Fringe Festival, but we can still connect adventurous artists with adventurous audiences to celebrate the performing arts.
During our regularly scheduled festival time, July 18-August 1, we will again present online events for your enjoyment at home. We will be offering online visual art exhibits, recorded performances, FaceBook lives, Talk back sessions, interviews and more!
Join us on June 10th for our Fringe Benefits kick-off on FB Live. We look forward to seeing you on the FRINGE!
Fringefully Yours,
Cheryl Kimmi
To give a voice to emerging young writers, The Coterie Theatre offers a virtual teen playwriting seminar in the 2021 KC Fringe Festival.
Students will learn to create settings, devise scenarios, and build characters.
Following this seminar, some promising participants may be selected to develop their plays in The Coterie’s Young Playwrights’ Roundtable.
The virtual workshop will take place via a secure Zoom link. This workshop is available only to those entering grades 7-12.
Calling all thrill seekers, KC lovers, and anyone looking for a fundraiser that’s a little, shall we say, crazy – this is your year to go Over the Edge for KC Fringe Festival.
Over the Edge is a unique fundraising event, providing participants the thrilling opportunity of rappelling down a building in an exciting and completely safe environment. Limited to the first 75 participants, individuals who want to participate are required to raise a minimum of $1,000.
Over The Edge 2021 will be held August 28th, at The Netherland, 3835 Main St, KCMO.  At 10 stories up, participants will have the distinction of rappelling over 100 feet! If you are a thrill seeker or want to challenge yourself to new levels, this is an experience you won’t want to miss.

Thanks to all who have contributed this year!
A Big Thank you to all who have given this year through our various fundraising efforts!
Without your support we would not have made it through this unprecedented, unforeseeable year!!
We’re looking for sponsors as dynamic as we are!
KC Fringe Festival is the perfect opportunity to engage with the more progressive people within our communities.
Our audience is multi-generational with a heavier lean towards retirees and those with time to take in the multitude of shows offered during our festival. They are grassroots Art Supporters. They are people who love the Kansas City “up and coming” arts scene. They are an open-minded, energetic community looking for a variety of entertainment. Wherever you are in life, there is something for everyone!
