Kids Fringe at Orlando Fringe Festival

Orlando Fringe, producers of the nation’s longest-running, independent Fringe theatre festival, have announced details for this year’s Kids Fringe.

Kids Fringe is free to attend, and will include live performances, workshops, and art activities. Performances will be thirty minutes or less and include plays, music, puppetry, and magic.

New shows coming to Kids Fringe this year are:

  • Beautiful Blackbird, a puppet performance based on Ashley Bryan’s classic children’s book of the same name
  • Purple People Storytime, which teaches kids that “Purple People” are fun people and show how kids can be a “Purple Person.”
  • Paul Strickland – Adventure Stories!, an interactive musical with a fun, silly story from award-winning storyteller Paul Strickland.

Returning favorites are:

  • Mad Science LIVE!, which features cool and exciting experiments that are easy and safe for little ones.
  • Mr. Richard and the Pound Hounds, Orlando’s only rock band just for kids that plays fun tunes that will make you want to dance.

Activities for the sessions will be centered around the theme “Happy Birthday, Fringezilla!” Fringezilla is the fun-loving dinosaur mascot of Orlando Fringe, and one of the newest events at Kids Fringe will be Fringezilla’s Scavenger Hunt, where families will find clues and complete activities to earn a rainbow of Fringezilla stickers. Activities in the hunt include art-making, dancing, acting, and exercising.

Kids Fringe will occur on Saturdays and Sundays during the festival (May 22, 23, 29, and 30), in and around Orlando Garden Club, and will run from 10am to 2pm each day.

Free tickets will be required to attend shows at Kids Fringe. Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, beginning fifteen minutes before each performance outside the Orlando Garden Club (710 E. Rollins St., Orlando, FL 32803).
