Twenty-By-Twenty Fringe (TBTF) is a new pilot program that was conceived in an effort to provide a platform for artistic directors, theatre practitioners, and theatre-goers across the country to watch bold, innovative, and intimate new works created by the most refreshing and current voices, 20 year olds*. 

 

TBTF values justice, equity, and resonance in theatre and strives to be a catalyst for young artists in celebrating their work, uplifting their voices, and providing low-risk opportunities for creativity and exploration.

This year's Fringe will feature 172 artists from 24 states! We've got a beyond-exciting lineup with something for everyone including a thriller radio play, a Latinx musical, an adaptation of Pinnochio, and shows exploring the themes of queerness, spirituality, diversity, inclusion, and multilingualism. 

Individual show tickets are available below and Fringe Passes are available for purchase here. If funds are a barrier for you, please feel free to email limeartsproductions@gmail.com with the ​show(s) and date/time and we'd be happy to provide comp tickets.

Today, women make up about half of the college educated workforce, but as of 2018, female STEM professionals only make up about 28% of the field. With the ingrained sexism and imposter syndrome typical of STEM-fields, this statistic is only suspected to worsen over time. This show aims to amplify the stories and experiences of the women we never heard about, and still don’t hear about now. Created from personal interviews and performed through a series of monologues, this piece reminds us that, although we have made some progress, there is still much farther to go.
