fringe /frinj/ adjective not part of the mainstream; unconventional, peripheral, or extreme.

This is NOT the York Fringe Festival. The mini-FRINGE is an homage to the original and hopes to begin a wave of encouragement for the Fringe’s triumphant return to the White Rose City. Unlike our predecessor, this is NOT a city wide event, but will utilize all 39,000 square feet of DreamWrights Center for Community Arts.

In addition to our traditional performance spaces DreamWrights’ mini-FRINGE opens all areas to stage your show and encourage your creativity in selecting a site specific venue to best showcase your story. TYPE OF mini-FRINGE SHOWS We invite all styles and genres of performance including everything from theatre, music, comedy and dance to children’s entertainment, spoken word, visual arts and so much more. mini-FRINGE shows in our traditional spaces should run 90 minutes (or less) and have simple load-ins and load-outs with all other spaces staging pieces that are less than an hour. With the full acknowledgment of the artistry of the set, costumes, and props design, the mini-FRINGE celebrates the performance itself above all.

Keep it simple! As amazing as it would be to stage both parts of Angels in America it would not fit in the mini-FRINGE.

HOW TO APPLY Submissions will open on Groundhog Day February 2, 2023 at 12 p.m. est and be accepted through April Fool’s Day April 1, 2023 (no joke!) at 5 p.m. est.
