There’s Still Time to Fringe!

There’s Still Time to Fringe!

Richard Lett makes use of his many, many talents–and leaves it up to the audience–to tell his survival journey. There’s three more chances to see this show, so buy your tickets now! Photo by Al Ricard.

There’s only a few more days left to take in what the first of our staggered Festival has to offer. And act now, because shows are getting sold out—Art Heist, for instance, has completely sold out its entire Fringe run! 

Tickets are still available for Richard Lett’s HARD 2 KILL, which is playing every day until Sunday at Performance Works at various times! In this one-man show, Richard Lett shares his survival journey in overcoming alcohol addiction, testicular cancer, and COVID-19—and leaves it up to the audience to decide how he’s going to tell his story!  

Spots are still available for The Hills Have Pens: A Generative Writing Workshop for Equity-Seeking Artists this Sunday, September 20, from 1-3pm, happening online! Hosted by Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Director Siobhan Barker and Communications and Outreach Coordinator Karla Comandaworkshop participants will be guided through a series of writing prompts to explore themes of isolation, longing, joy, nature, and privilege. 

Don’t forget to get your September mini-Fringe fix by buying your tickets online. Stay tuned for the shows that will be part of the October mini-Fringe, coming to you very soon from October 1-10! 

Help Fringe to Close the Gap!

The COVID-19 pandemic is squeezing arts finances in unprecedented ways. The Fringe has lost thousands of dollars in sponsorship and funding opportunities due to the pandemic. And while we have shifted to ensure that the Festival continues to offer opportunities to our Artists, show producers, and administrators, we want to ensure that it thrives. To do so, we are calling on you to help us Close the Gap!

The Fringe is looking to raise $30,000 to help the Festival succeed in making “Theatre for Everyone” possible for many years to come. Here’s two ways you can help:

Donate today—whether it’s $25, $150, or $1,000, every bit helps us to Close the Gap!

Buy an extra Membership, or a Premium Membership—Fringe Memberships are a one-time purchase and comes with great year-round perks, including access to all the hottest Fringe shows! The Membership Fee goes directly to support the Fringe in our year of need.

It’s thanks to donations from awesome Fringers like you that the Festival keeps going year after year. Help us keep the arts alive by donating today!
