This year’s Key Bank Rochester Fringe Festival will feature a variety of performances and films with RIT/NTID connections.
Since the festival’s debut in 2012, deaf and hard-of-hearing performers, as well as captioned performances have been highlighted. Many of those performers have been RIT/NTID students, alumni, faculty and staff.

- A showing of the film “Baby Driver” featuring RIT/NTID alumnus CJ Jones
- A one-person comedy show “Becoming Kat” from alumnus Keith Banks
- Former and current RIT/NTID students in the performance group “Dangerous Signs” in a performance of their original production “Beyond Words”
