2012 Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival Lottery Results




If you follow me on Twitter (@skubersky) you may have been confused by an avalanche of incoherent messages this past Monday night. Fear not for my sanity; I was only live-tweeting the results of the 2012 Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival lottery, held at the Parliament House's Footlights Theater.

Just as in past years, the productions presented at next May's Fringe Festival were drawn from the pool of applicants in a random lottery. This time, the event was overseen by Fringe general manger George Wallace and newly-appointed producer Michael Marinaccio, with the actual drawing performed by Fringe supporter David Horgan.

It should be noted that at the end of the evening, there were 50 shows not selected that were placed on the wait list, including many popular past performers such as Martin Dockery, Orlando Youth Theater, and Miss Hiccup. Some of these groups have already been moved onto the schedule, and others may be added as the Festival approaches. But there were enough excess applicants (above the 70-odd shows the festival's facilities can support) that some favorites are certain to be left out. Bad news for their fans, but great news for the future of the Fringe.

See below for the full Fringe press release, along with a complete list of the lucky shows:

On Monday, November 21, Orlando Fringe held it's annual lottery for the 21st Annual Orlando Fringe Theatre Festival at The Parliament House's Footlight Theatre.  Led by Festival Producer, Michael Marinaccio and General Manager, George Wallace, Fringe patron and sponsor David Horgan pulled the names.  There were 119 applications for the Festival this year which equates to a waitlist of 50 or so artists from around the world.

Here is the current line-up (schedule to change pending waitlist, drop-outs and space availability)
