Charm City Fringe announces festival artists and venues
Fifth anniversary of Charm City Fringe runs 11 days across 10 venues

BALTIMORE, MD – Charm City Fringe will present its fifth annual festival, featuring new and independent theatre Nov. 3 to 13 at venues across Hampden and Station North.

The November festival will showcase nearly 20 full-length productions. Acts will reach far beyond the typical standards of comedy and drama, including multimedia theatre-cum-film, contemporary ballet, slapstick-dance-puppetry mash-ups, and God himself exposing the myth and magic behind the miracles. The final lineup and schedule of performances will be announced in September.

An exclusive early festival production of third-year Fringe alumni Two Lorens’ 2014 sellout hit, Sex, Drugs, and Audience Participation will be performed Nov. 4 and 5. The full list of artists and shows coming this fall can be found below.

This year will see three new venues, including a festival headquarters and performance venue at the Ideal Arts Space in Hampden, an additional venue at Saint Mark’s Lutheran Church, and the newly added Stillpointe Theatre in Station North. Fringe will reprise their late night music and comedy series, Fringe After Dark, at Joe Squared, the Crown, and The Windup Space.

The festival kicks off November 3rd with an opening party at Joe Squared (33 W. North Ave). Attendees will be able to meet the artists, catch special previews, and more.

For more information, visit Tickets are $10 per show with the one-time purchase of a $5 button, and will be available in September.
