And We’re Off!

WOW. We can not explain how excited we are to finally be kicking off our First Scranton Fringe Festival weekend! The outpouring of support from our community has been overwhelming, and we’re so excited to continue to build the Fringe family!


Various preview performers give us a taste of their shows

To recap Thursday’s Preview party, we had many supporters and artists alike flock to the Leonard Theater for a night of fun performances. Some of the artists who put on a teaser performance included: Presenting the Spectrettes, Une Soiree au Cabaret, St. Arbor the Nursery, My Billions. Mine, Unpopable Molly, Bunny Bunny, and many more! This gave our audience a taste of the weekend to come! Terra Preta had some of their incredible menu items for sale, drawing many people back more than once for a taste of their delicious, locally sourced cuisine. Many great handcrafted artists had tables to display their items, and some lucky winners walked away with amazing raffle prizes. Afterward, many of our crowd put on their best Disney outfits and headed to the Bog for the Panked after party!
