How to Fringe

You’re spoilt for choice in 2020 with 19 brilliant performances.

Read on to see which Global Fringe shows will be streamed live or on-demand, which you can attend in-person, and which you can enjoy in multiple ways.

Our international performances come courtesy of our Global Fringe partners around the world – Brighton Fringe, New Zealand Fringe, San Diego Fringe, Stockholm Fringe and Hollywood Fringe.

Live In-Person

Live theatre returns to Sydney stages in September with four shows at the Old 505 Theatre.

 

How do I attend?

 

These ticketed events give Sydneysiders an opportunity to see independent theatre in person. Each show has four performances from Wednesday to Saturday, with limited, socially-distanced capacity. See the full live in-person program.

 

To ensure artists, audiences and staff are kept safe, you’ll notice a few changes to the booking process and event day experience. All tickets must be booked in advance, and tickets must be booked in groups of 1–4 people who you’re happy to sit alongside without social distancing.

 

If you’re planning to attend any of our live in-person performances, you can read about all our safety procedures before you arrive.

 

How else can I watch?

 

All live in-person events will also feature in our Gala Live Streams. Some will also be available to stream on-demand for the remainder of the the week.
