Many thanks to our esteemed panel at the first ever Fringe Workshop last night and to all of you who attended. For those who couldn’t make it, here’s a recording of the proceedings.
So without further ado, here’s Gregory Crafts, Gedaly Guberek, Aaron Kozak, Monica Miklas, Dana Murphy, Kathryn Primeau, Matthew Quinn and our host Stacy Jones Hill. The event was produced by the ever fantastic Meghan McCauley.

NOTE: These dates apply to the 2012 Festival.
To provide an equal opportunity for everyone to benefit from premium ad placement in the Fringe Guide, we have adopted the custom of auctioning off these spaces. The premium ads auction begins tonight at 7pm pacific (Tuesday, April 17) and ends this Friday (April 20) at 7pm pacific. We will send out a reminder email as the auction nears a close.
You can view and bid on the auction by following this link.
This year we have four ads on the block:
- The Back Cover (oooh, ahhhh)
- The Inner Front Cover (one page turn on the left)
- The Left Centerfold
- The Right Centerfold
Only full page ads qualify. You may still bid if you have already purchased a smaller sized ad; you must provide full page art on final payment when the auction ends this week.
Bids start at $500 (the participant cost of a full page ad). If you have already paid for a Fringe ad, the amount you paid will be deducted from the winning bid. There are “buy it now” prices this year for those that want to secure a premium spot before the auction is complete.
Contact us at [email protected] with any questions.

For those of you seeking to place an ad in the printed guide (hint: this is a good idea), we need your artwork uploaded by Sunday, April 15 at midnight pacific so we can make our print deadlines.
Participants: You do not receive a graphical representation of your project with your basic guide listing, so this is how to get your beautiful art included in the guide. Prices are heavily slashed for participants, so make sure to purchase ads while logged in under your Fringe account.
Checkout the ads section of the site to learn how to order print ads.

Thanks again to everyone who attended the Town Hall this week.
For those of you who couldn’t make it, we have included the following audio track for your listening pleasure.
We begin with about 80 minutes of information on marketing shows then move right into Q & A.
Thanks to the staff and management of Theatre of Arts (the home of Fringe Central 2010) for hosting us this evening. We will have other opportunities to interact as a community as we approach the big dates in June.
Give it a listen!
