This year Piccolo Fringe is bringing back some hits like One Man Star Wars Trilogy as well as first time acts like the sketch comedy group BriTANick from NYC. Old favorites like the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Company are returning and The Have Nots! will be celebrating 14 years together.

Theatre 99 started Piccolo Fringe in 2001 with tickets selling for $15.00. In 2009, we still sell Piccolo Fringe tickets for $15.00. We have not raised out ticket prices so EVERYONE can enjoy great live theatre and comedy. Now more than ever, price is important for all of us. Please support Piccolo Fringe by coming to see the shows!
