KC Fringe Artists Bring Exciting Variety to Online Festival

KC Fringe July 12-26

Nothing can replace live performances, but KC Fringe and its lineup of artists in 2020 did all they could to give its audience something as close to the real thing as possible. The result is something truly Fringe worthy.

This year’s festival, running now through July 26, is all online, meaning audiences purchase tickets to watch videos anytime they want. The on-demand experience gives audiences the flexibility to watch every show, or just one or two. They can watch morning, day or night, any day of the week.

Tickets are available for $5 or $10, depending on the length of the show. All-access passes are also available for $200, which provide access to all 2020 shows. Categories include theater, music, dance and movement, film, storytelling and more.
