Owls Fly High in 2019 Philly Fringe Festival

The Philly Fringe Festival, presented by FringeArts, is a highly anticipated event in Philadelphia that comes around every September. Running September 5-22 this year, audiences can, as always, expect a wide variety of work, exciting venues, and talent. What’s particularly notable about this year’s festival, however, is the large number of Temple Owls involved in all aspects of production. Over 30 Owls, both alumni and current students, are involved in at least nine shows playing this month!
