The Ursinus Fringe Festival is a diverse, vibrant, exciting 4-day event that brings cutting-edge, experimental performances and visual arts to campus.  Modeled after the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, the Ursinus Fringe brings together professional companies and student and faculty artists to share their latest theater, dance, music, film and visual art works.

Schedule of Events:

As CIE students begin to explore Plato’s Euthyphro in class, we will have a performance to bring the words to life.  Professional Philadelphia actors Akeem Davis and Kevin Meehan will play Socrates and Euthyphro in an outdoor performance (weather-permitting), providing fresh perspectives on the text.

Grab your sonic and brace yourself for an exciting ride with Timeprov: The Improvised Doctor Who Parody

Timeprov is an affectionate improvised parody of Doctor Who that will take you on a funny and wondrous adventure to the farthest reaches of time and space.

WE bring the thrills and the laughs.  And Timeprov is a great time even for comedy fans who have never watched a minute of Doctor Who—we keep it fun for everyone, so your two hearts won’t miss a beat.
