2020 FronteraFest Short Fringe Application

NOTE: The Short Fringe is now full but we are continuing to take applications for the wait list. We get 10-12 cancellations a year, so your chances of getting in off the wait list are very good. To get on, fill out this application and print (Chrome is recommended) and send it in with your check for $60 to Hyde Park Theatre, 511 W. 43rd St., Austin, TX 78751, ATTN: FronteraFest. We'll hold your check until you get a spot in the festival. Checks MUST be made out to  HYDE PARK THEATRE, in order to secure your spot on the list. 


Welcome to the 2020 FronteraFest Short Fringe Application! This is an unjuried festival so slots are filled on a first-come basis. The deadline to apply is November 1st, 2019, but there is a $10 discount to the application fee (automatically applied), if you apply by October 1st.
