About Holiday Cheer with Fringe

Join us at our first fun-raiser of the season and enjoy a little Holiday Cheer in the Garden of the beautiful Gardens Hotel. We're presenting the musical tunes of the Coconut Elves, a trio formed during the pandemic, featuring Gary Rivenson, Roberta Jacyshyn, and Mark Rose. Enjoy a little Bach and a little Jazz sprinkled with some of your favorite holiday tunes. Doors open at 6:30pm. Show starts at 7pm. THEN it's ‘All Aboard’ the Holiday Lights Train. This open-air train will travel to New Town and back in search of the best light shows our little island has to offer. (Please check the weather so you'll know what to bring.) Your $50 includes the program and the train ride. And it helps to support our education and outreach programs. For more info, email us at [email protected]

Fringe Theater Key West

Since 2009, Fringe has been creating unique opportunities for people to see and do theater in Key West! When you attend a Fringe production, you'll be immersed in a theater experience that is intimate and engaging. You just never know what to expect from Fringe.

Our season is filled with Main Stage shows that provoke thought and laughter – whether it's a new play or a classic presented a new way. And our programs nurture  emerging artists and technicians as well as seasoned theater folk!

As a 501(C)(3), we know the importance of education, outreach, and enrichment. Our programs, include Field Trip to Fringe, Shakespeare in Schools, and community - focused Play Readings. We hold open auditions at least twice a year, and we encourage folks who “used to” and “always thought about” to get started with Fringe. We have tech opportunities, too!
