With the support of key advisors, stakeholders, staff, and board, we are excited to announce that the next BorderLight International Theatre + Fringe Festival will take place July 2021. We hope you will join us in advancing BorderLight’s growth as an enduring biennial summer theatre festival and a sustainable organization.


 

And thus, our work continues! The last few months have included everything from touring prospective new venues downtown, attending a national convening of fringe festival producers, building our base of supporters, and preliminary work on the international programming front. It is a fertile and active time for our young organization. We welcome your interest, your curiosity, your commitment, and your support.
