Primetime Festival

Hosted by Toronto Fringe

The Primetime Festival is an online performance festival featuring interactive digital experiences from across the country. The festival features five shows, programed throughout the month of November, which take place on various online platforms: Zoom, gather.town, and Twitch.

You can catch interactive sketch comedy, go on an adventure with a crowd-pleasing genie, enter a magical living room portal, watch an acclaimed storyteller in action, and catch up with a Fringe fave from the past. Tickets to live events are Pay What You Can.


Transcripts All audio pieces will be accompanied by PDF transcript documents that are screen-reader friendly. If you would like to request a transcript for the show With Love and a Major Organ (The Audio Play) please contact producer@fringetoronto.com.
