The Victoria Fringe Festival is fast approaching! Fringe is hosting two events sponsored by CFUV to kick off the festival this year. Tonight is the annual Fringe Block Party Fashion Show. This year features ROMP! In the Square, performances from Fringe artists, a 1500 square foot picnic blanket (bring snacks!), a DJ, and more! This year, wear you wildest and wackiest and come hang with the CFUV crew and get your Fringe on!
Tomorrow night is the annual, infamous Fringe Eve Previews. This year the previews take over the Centennial Square to give all Fringers a 2-3 minute preview of all the shows in the first week of the festival. The previews are a fantastic way to decide which shows to check out. For more insight into how to decide what Fringe shows to see, listen below to a brief interview with Heather Lindsay, Intrepid Theatre’s General Manager.
Robyn and I visited the Fringe HQ at the Intrepid Theatre Club to catch up with some of the staff about the festival. Listen to Sean Guist, the Marketing and Development Coordinator at Intrepid Theatre, talk about what’s new at the festival this year and “How to Fringe In Under A Minute.”
Last of all, Robyn wanted to learn how to volunteer with Fringe. She got to ask Jensen, the volunteer coordinator, all about it. Turns out they still need volunteers and you can click here to sign up! Robyn does not seem like the most responsible volunteer, so please consider helping them out.
Until next time,
