Calls for Artists: Next Stage

In place of the 14th annual Next Stage Theatre Festival, Toronto Fringe will be presenting The Next Stage Community Booster. This four-day event will be a boost of energy, ideas, creativity, and friendship for those enduring an isolated pandemic winter.

We will feature digital performances from acclaimed indie artists, livestreamed conversations on urgent topics, online workshops that focus on mental health and self-care, and (if permitted by public health) socially distanced outdoor gatherings for small groups.  The event will take place from January 21 – 24, 2021 online at and potentially with limited capacity outdoors.  More programming details will be announced in December.
