The Fringe Theatre

Welcome to The Fringe Theatre!

We are a non-profit theatre group producing Panto musical theatre shows in Needham, MA.

"What is Panto?" you ask? Learn more about the performing style!

Celebrating a Decade of madness

Thank you to the cast, crew, volunteers, and fans for making our tenth season our greatest yet!

Join us on Thursday, August 22 at 6:30pm at our (spoiler alert: we're moving!) new home, The Congo, for our annual cast viewing party!

Cast, crew, families, and friends are all invited to join us at 1154 Great Plain Ave. in Needham to watch the show and enjoy each other's company. And that's it. Nothing else will happen...

JUST KIDDING! We will be announcing our 2020 show! Can't wait to see you all again and kick off our 2020 season!

Popcorn and water will be provided. Feel free to bring additional snacks to share!

A New Home for 2020

There's no place like home... and we have a new one! Starting with our 2020 season, the #PantoFam will now call The Congregational Church of Needham, home. 

Lovingly called "The Congo," we can't wait for all the new memories we will make at 1154 Great Plain Ave.

We are thrilled to have found a place to that will not only work for our group, but will help us thrive and grow! There will be some changes, of course, but we are looking forward to seeing what this new venue has in store for us!
