How to fringe

Buttons & tickets

;

First, buy a Fringe button. And we suggest buying it in advance, which you have to do in person. REPEAT: Buttons must be purchased in person. It's $8 and is required for entry to all performances, but NOT for Visual Fringe, Kids Fringe, the outdoor stage or the beer tent. Buttons are available only at the Ticket Central location (4 p.m.-midnight weekdays, 10 a.m.-midnight weekends) inside the Lowndes Shakespeare Center and the Orlando Repertory Theatre – not online and not by phone. Proceeds from the button sales benefit the festival; ticket revenue goes directly to the performers.

;

After you have the button (sold in several collectible designs), buy tickets (priced up to $10), which are sold inside the Shakespeare theater and the Orlando Rep up to three minutes before show time. Advance tickets – the way to go – are available at www.orlandofringe.org. Online sales stop at 10 p.m. on the day before a specific performance. A $1 processing fee is added to all ticket purchases. After you buy advance tickets, you can print them yourself. Free parking is available at Loch Haven Park on a first-come, first-served basis. There is also limited street parking on Rollins Street and Mills Avenue and paid parking at the Orlando Science Center and Florida Hospital.

No late seating will be permitted.
