The 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe

The Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance has been invited to participate in the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival (the largest international theatre festival in the world) as part of the college performing arts program.

This project enhances the international presence of the Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance, showcasing our department, the College, and the university at the world’s largest international theatre festival while also elevating our Black Theatre & Dance concentration, representing it, literally, on the global stage.

Your support will ensure this project’s success by alleviating some of the financial burden that international travel causes. Students are directly supported by your gift, making this already phenomenal opportunity one that will impact them and their training for the rest of their lives.
