About

We are thrilled to close our season with our third annual explosion of our students’ creativity, skills and (sometimes wild) imaginations. During Fringe Fest, we turn our spaces over to them to produce sparkling new plays, delightful takes on established work, and pieces that test the boundaries of theater. All work is free and open to the public and will be announced in Spring 2024 — join us in celebrating this exciting generation of theater artists!

We can’t share the titles yet, but expect to enjoy contemporary musicals, several original plays and performance pieces created by students, an art installation, a 24-hour play festival and a cabaret.

Events are slated to take place May 4-12 in locations around campus, times and ticket details to be announced.


Visit this page for event updates in spring 2024. All events will be free, reservation details, if any, will be made available in spering 2024 as well. Not part of our season subscription.

This event is part of the UMass Amherst 2024 Spring Arts Festival. Learn more about the festival on the website.
