August 25 – September 4, 2011
Over the last 25 years the Fringe has grown to become Vancouver Island’s biggest theatre event. In 2011, 72 international independent performing companies will descend on the City of Gardens for eleven days and nights of comedy, drama, dance, spoken word, and physical theatre – over 430 performances in thirteen venues.
Fringe-going is easy, fun and slightly addictive. Meet friends, artists and strangers in lineups, buy cheap tickets and see live shows, grab a bit or beer in between and figure out what you’ll see next. It’s the best part of the summer.
The shows in the Fringe are un-juried and uncensored, and the alternative theatre productions you see there are the work of ingenious independent producers and artists. 100% of box office sales go to the performers.
