From LDS to Goth: My Teen Years

Ticket Price $13.00 This event is now over

This show is a coming of age story about a teenager whose uncle's death leads her to leave her family's religion. She endures a shooting, a house party gone wrong, an accidental fire, and running away before going Goth. Narrowly avoiding a career in the sex industry, she crowdfunds a piercing her mom never knew about, and lives in Germany before she realizes what home and family mean to her.

Tucson Fringe Festival

The Tucson Fringe Festival is an unjuried, uncensored performing arts festival. Since 2011, following international fringe tenets, the festival provides artists with low-risk, low-cost opportunities to perform by using economies of scale to reduce venue rental costs and by taking only 20%, and sometimes 0%, of the artist’s earnings. Tucson Fringe also provides the Tucson arts community with avant-garde, non-traditional performing arts at low-cost ticket prices.

The festival does not curate or select the performances, maintaining an environment in which everyone and anyone can perform. This ensures that underrepresented artistic voices, such as people of color, the LGBT+ community, women, and other marginalized genders, are championed in our community.

The festival takes place in January every year across multiple venues in downtown Tucson. On average, every year the festival has 20+ shows with between 50-60 performances during the festival weekend.
