What IS Fringe?
THE FRINGE FILOSOPHY:
-100% OF TICKET SELLS GO DIRECTLY TO THE ARTISTS INVOLVED!
Orlando Fringe Festival dates for 2007 are May 17 - 28 at Loch Haven Park!!
THE FRINGE MISSION: The Mission of the Orlando Fringe is to provide an accessible, affordable outlet that draws diverse elements of the community together and inspires creative experiences through the arts.
Not to be confused with “frilly decorative borders” or “extremist political parties”, “Fringe” is a “festival” or rather, a “celebration”, of the theatrical and performing “arts”. The Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival takes place in and around Loch Haven Park over the course of ten straight days. Frequently referred to as “the premier springtime cultural event in Central Florida,” The Orlando Fringe Festival “encompasses” more than 500 “uncensored” and “non-juried” shows.
HISTORY of the FRINGE:
The origination of the Fringe festival dates back to over 50 years ago in Edinburgh, Scotland. The story goes that there was an international performing arts festival going on in Edinburgh, strangely engouh called The Edinburgh International Festival, and a few theatre groups showed up uninvited. They had no place to stay, no place to put on their shows, and so they went home. Just kidding. They went to the ‘fringes” of the city to venues away from the main stages and put on their performances. Thus, The “Fringe” Festival was born.
