The Orlando Fringe, a Central Florida arts community who is known for throwing their annual Orlando Fringe Festival every year,  has arranged to take over a theater space, according to Bungalower. The space is currently occupied by Mad Cow Theatre, but they are slated to vacate at the end of the month.

The organization will operate the unit at 54 W Church Street. City Council recently voted to allow Orlando Fringe to take on a multi-year lease in the performance arts space. This came also with a Community Redevelopment Agency grant of $307,000.

When asked how Orlando Fringe would use the grant, a spokesperson said: “The CRA grant is to allow us the ability to activate the space and support local independent artists. The grant ensures the financial success of an organization that wants to amplify voices, provide access to the arts and bring in national and international artists to downtown Orlando.”

According to O’Conner’s report, we can expect to see the new space open May 2023. 

Expect the new location to be an extension of the annual Fringe Festival, in which the organization promotes the community arts, performances, inclusion and expression.
