While the official Scranton Fringe Festival, the annual large fall festival of arts, culture, and community is officially cancelled, Team Fringe will host an exciting new project that will provide a unique, safer theatrical experience for local audiences.

Fringe Under Glass is a pilot program of performing arts set behind the windows of various downtown Scranton venues and small businesses.

The live works will feature solo artists or small groups of creative talent who are already living or working in close proximity, creating strong visuals as well as engaging live audiences safely from a distance.

Featured artists & cultural groups include:

Black Scranton
Gaslight Theatre Company
The Pop Up Studio
Mostly Opera
Simone Daniel
Nicole Nicholas

Wireless audio transmission will be utilized to provide small groups of live audience members the ability to maintain a safe distance from the artists and each other as they travel from window to window in the Electric City.

WHERE? Various sidewalks of downtown Scranton PA

WHEN? Friday September 25th thru Sunday September 27th (times vary)

Ticket sales will go live August 10th 2020 via !

All performers will be behind glass, distant from the audience (with use of wireless audio to ensure all can hear and enjoy the work). All audiences (in small walking groups) and Fringe tour guides will be required to wear masks while attending this event. Masks, gloves, and other PPE supplies will be available at all times during this event. Fringe staff will ensure each locale is sanitized between each performance.

If your organization / business would like to help bring this concept to life and join us as a creative partner -- or if you as an individual want to assist -- please reach out to
