Fringe Submissions

TAPAC is Seeking Auckland Fringe Festival 2021 Submissions 

15 February - 6 March 2021 

Have you got an original act that embodies the spirit, sass and fabulousness of Fringe? Circus, theatre, dance, drag, comedy, music, song, mime -  we're open to all of your wild and wonderful ideas!

We LOVE Fringe - it encapsulates how the performing arts celebrate diversity and difference, experiment and explore new ideas, encourage connection and collaboration. Most of all, it’s a whole lot of FUN.

If you’re an emerging artist, our experienced team will help you every step of the way. If you’re seasoned performers, we’ll work with you to make your show the best it can possibly be. Fringe acts tell us that they love creating and performing in our vibrant community space. Our purpose-built theatre seats 127 and has a professional lighting rig and sound system. We’ve got a bar that will be open before and after your show and plenty of free parking. One of the great things about choosing TAPAC to host your show is that, after charges (below), you receive all the box office profits and don’t need to share them with us.  So register and get your all your fans, crew and networks to support you and come see you in action!

TAPAC’s Fringe Package:

  • $250 for a 6-hour technical rehearsal
  • $90 per show for 3 shows (after charges, you receive all box office profits)
  • Plenty of parking
  • Bar open pre and post show

This pricing includes a Venue Technician (who you can also use as your operator) and our standard lighting rig and sound equipment.

You will need to provide your own Stage Manager, any other crew and additional equipment.


If programmed, your show:

  • will be part of a double or triple bill each evening.
  • must be a maximum of 50 minutes and be able to be packed in and out in 20 minutes. Note TAPAC has limited storage for your set or props.
  • needs to be registered with the Fringe
  • you will need to pay a deposit of $250.

Please let us know any changes to the information you provide as it may affect whether or not your show is programmed.

To submit your act, please complete the submission form attached below and send it, together with your script or outline, to our Community Coordinator Pene at [email protected]

TAPAC would like to thank Foundation North for their support of our Fringe season, which is enabling us to offer lower venue hire charges to Fringe acts.
