It may be months away, but planning is underway for the 2012 Fringetastic Theatre Festival, Aug 16 – 26, Nanaimo’s Second Annual Fringe Theatre Event.
Last year had over 550 people attend the four day event, where eight companies (from as far away as Mexico) presented over 30 shows in Downtown Nanaimo for enthusiastic local audiences
This year’s festival starts with a personal invitation from producer Jeremy Banks to visit fringetastic.com and to apply to the festival lottery. If your company is selected to perform, you’ll get six performances to present any unjuried, un-censored and un-limited creation you want, on stage, in downtown Nanaimo over the course of the festival.
Applications are due by February 1 and a lottery to ensure fair selection will be held to decide which applications are accepted. The lottery does have some categories however, as 50 per cent of performances are reserved for Vancouver Island performance companies.
