Just because OUR seasons are complete as of July 20, that doesn't mean our students aren't out producing theatre and dance. Below is a listing of events from the Mnnesota Fringe Festival that will have participation from current or past Minnesota State Mankato Theatre & Dance students. Ticket information can be found on the Fringe Festival page or any of the show pages.
Minnesota Fringe Festival is a Minneapolis-based nonprofit organization that organizes an annual festival, this year running from Aug. 1-11. This year marks its 19th anniversary. Since 1993, Minnesota Fringe has grown by leaps and bounds into the Midwest’s largest performing arts festival—and the largest nonjuried, uncensored Fringe in the United States. The organization does not judge, jury or censor the work of any artist—the goal is provide a platform for performance, and they leave it up to the audience to evaluate the results.
