'Berg Fringe

Muhlenberg's First-Ever Fringe Festival

Unfortunately, in the face of the COVID-19 health crisis, Muhlenberg has been compelled to suspend all in-person classes and public events, including this production. We have contacted all patrons who have purchased tickets to the performance to offer credit or refund of the ticket purchase. If you have any questions, please email Scott Snyder, Marketing Manager.

We will be looking for ways to foster the continued development of all of these pieces going forward. Stay tuned for information about Fringe 2021!


Presented in Partnership with WMUH 91.7 FM

Featuring off-beat, innovative, outrageous performances created by 'Berg students, faculty, and staff

Fringe festivals celebrate the cutting-edge power of indie theatre by producing some of the best live art on the planet. Fueled by the passion of young artists, experimental companies, and fresh, new work, fringe festivals are celebrations of innovation, showcasing multiple raw projects across several weeks, in venues all over a city’s map.

This year we are proud to present the first-ever Berg Fringe — a series of boundary-breaking, bare-knuckle performances of all kinds, produced in spaces all over Muhlenberg, throughout the month of April.

A brand-new group-devised performance in the Rehearsal Hall? A world-premiere radio drama, broadcast on WMUH? A modern Shakespeare adaptation in the outdoor amphitheater? An original dance theatre piece? A solo show in the Recital Hall? Gig theatre in the Red Door? A workshop production of a new play? Environmental performance in a public campus space?
