Scranton Fringe Festival plans to launch a digital festival series while many are practicing social distancing during the coronavirus outbreak.
“Distant-Scene Theatre” will feature high quality live-streams and recordings from Scranton productions, as well as works from across the country, according to a Facebook post.
While the Scranton Fringe Festival is still set to take place from Thursday, Sept. 24, through Sunday, Oct. 4, this will serve as a way to “ensure culture, community and creativity can still thrive, even under quarantine.”
“We are hoping this initiative will provide revenue not just for our organization, but our artists and highly affordable brilliant content for audiences worldwide,” the Fringe Festival wrote on Facebook. “Even from home, you can enjoy live theater and be part of this new movement as we all navigate our ever-changing world!”
