The San Diego International Fringe Festival will return to Balboa Park May 18 through 28 with at least 20 acts, officials announced last week.

Like last year, the Fringe will be focused mostly within the Park’s Marie Hitchcock Puppet Theatre and the nearby Centro Cultural de la Raza. In the coming weeks the lineup will be announced, with shows for both family and adult audiences. For details, visit
