Lime Arts Productions Launches Second Annual Twenty By Twenty Fringe

Back after a wildly successful and critically-acclaimed pilot program, Lime Arts Productions presents the second iteration of the Twenty By Twenty Fringe, a program that was conceived in an effort to provide a platform for artistic directors, theatre and film practitioners, and audiences across the country to watch bold, innovative, and intimate new works created by the most refreshing and current voices: artists in their 20s.

The Fringe will run from May 12th through 22nd via various streaming platforms for free. This year, 213 artists from 19 states and territories will participate in the Fringe, bringing twenty new works to life. Full show and film descriptions and ticketing information is available at

For our second iteration of this program, we have a beyond-exciting lineup with something for everyone: a radio play about first generation college students, a professionally filmed female-driven musical, a true crime documentary following the slaying of a black university student, and shows exploring the themes of transness, isolation, inclusion, and multilingualism.

TBTF values justice, equity, and resonance in theatre and film and strives to be a catalyst for young artists in celebrating their work, uplifting their voices, and providing low-risk opportunities for creativity and exploration. It is the goal of TBTF to present the most diverse, innovative, and intimate works possible.

As part of the Fringe, the Young Icon Award is given to a young artist who has accomplished great feats, inspires all who work with them, and is ultimately paving the way for other young artists. This year's recipient is Kara Young (Broadway's Clydes, Sundance's Master and Hair Wolf), who will be accepting this award during the Recognition Ceremony which will take place on May 22nd at 4:00PM PST.
