JHS Theatre – Fringe Festival

2015_Fringedateswithyear(blue)The Jeffersonville High School Theatre Department has received an invitation to perform at the 2016 Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland! This is a huge honor for the theatre program and one given to very few high school programs in the country. The Fringe Festival is the largest arts festival in the world! In 2014 alone, there were close to 50,000 performances shown in 299 venues over the course of 25 days.

Jeffersonville High School received the nomination based on the quality of shows produced within the past five years. In addition to theatrical excellence, nominations are also based on special recognitions and awards, technical ability, recommendations, and community involvement.

This is the second time the Jeffersonville High School Theatre Department will attend the prestigious festival. The department traveled to Edinburgh in 2003, where they performed the musical-comedy Forever Plaid. While the show selection has yet to be chosen for 2016, we are confident it will be a crowd-pleaser for audiences in Jeffersonville and Edinburgh.
