FRINGE 2017 at the Bakehouse. All Shows at a Glance

Monday, 13 February 2017 to Saturday, 18 March 2017

The Bakehouse Theatre is thrilled to announce that we are bursting with a fabulous menu of shows for the Adelaide Fringe 2017.

We welcome back some stalwarts from previous years (with new shows) and a whole range of new performers who are keen to strutt their stuff and make your Fringe experience memorable.

We know how confusing it is to trawl through all of the Fringe shows on offer, but with 25 different shows to choose from right here at the Bakehouse, fabulous restaurants around the corner in Hutt Street, and the Garden of Unearthly Delights a mere 5 minute stroll away, you should make the Bakehouse your 2017 Fringe Hub.

For your convenience we have compiled all of our shows into a one page at a glance listing here. Further down the track each show will have its own separate page for you to peruse in more detail.

Happy Fringeing from the Bakehouse!
