We are happy to announce another visibility opportunity for Fringe participants: Perform a segment of your show under the Fringe Tent on our cabaret stage at Fringe Central.
We are now booking 15 minute slots at the top of every hour between 6pm and 10pm on June 16-19 and June 22-25. The atmosphere on these days will be casual, as many Fringe participants, patrons, and supporters congregate by the bar and enjoy the company of fellow arts lovers.
The stage itself is 8’ x 8’ and the tent can maintain a capacity of 150 people. No amplified sound is available so as to not disrupt performances in the adjacent spaces at Fringe Central. It’s totally free and will be a great way to showcase and promote your show.
You may also be considered for our Fringe Cabaret events on the evenings of Monday, June 20 and Tuesday, June 21 (at 7pm and 9:30 pm on both days). The tent will be revamped on these days to seat 150 people in a formal performance atmosphere. As it’s the only show in Fringe Central that night, we will have amplified sound those nights only.
To apply to Fringe Cabaret:
1. Login to the fringe site
2. Visit the Cabaret Stage Venue
3. Apply as you would for any other show
We are seeking shows that are appropriate for a Cabaret atmosphere: Monologues, burlesque, acoustic music, magic, improv, sketch and stand up comedy and the like. Please include a description of your show and how you see it fitting within a cabaret environment in the “personal note” section of your venue application.
We look forward to seeing you all at Fringe Central!
