2011 Fringe Theatre Festival kicks into gear




This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival, and to kickoff the new season, festival organizers Beth Marshall and friends will hold a photo shoot on Monday, Feb. 7 at 4:30 p.m. at Orlando Shakespeare Theatre.

In honor of this year’s festival theme – “20 Year High School Reunion” – artists, volunteers and patrons are invited to dress as familiar school personalities – prom queen, cheerleaders, nerds and the like – for a group photo that will be featured on festival promo posters.

The official Fringe Theatre Festival isn’t until May 18, but the group is holding a couple of events leading up to the main event: a Hard Rock Pin unveiling party next week, in honor of this year’s commemorative Fringe pin, and later this month, the well-known Fabulous Fringe Fundraiser.

For a full lineup of the shows featured at this year’s festival, or to RSVP for Monday’s photo shoot, visit the Fringe Theatre Festival website.
