The Free Fringe is a performance slot at The Hideout Theatre.
The Free Fringe happens every Thursday at 10pm at the Hideout. It is free to attend, and features two experimental, one-off shows followed by a headliner act.
The show is concept-driven, rather than troupe-driven. The Hideout accepts online submissions for show concepts, and picks several to showcase each week.
The show is hosted by Jessica Arjet. Firth & Arjet was the Free Fringe's headliner through 8/9/12. Then, after Kristin Firth left Austin, a rotating set of Jessica's projects have occupied the headliner slot.
Many of the experiments put up for the Free Fringe have met with unexpected success and become recurring shows.
