2008 Fringe Festival Schedule is Live

Fringe Festival 2008 logoFringe is fast-approaching. This year’s Fringe Festival schedule is now available for viewing. Shows run July 31-August 10 in 18 venues in Uptown, the West Bank, and North Loop/Northeast.

Start planning your schedule now with a little preview help from one or both Fringe-For-All showcases or at a library near you. I found it to be as helpful in ruling out some shows as it was in selecting shows.

Now’s the time to sign up to volunteer. It takes about 500 volunteers to man the Fringe each year. Working one show gets you a ticket to one show. You can be a box officer, usher, sidekick, on-call box officer, or a lobby meister. There’s training, a manual, and a t-shirt! Who doesn’t like a free t-shirt?

I’ll probably be volunteering this year, so between that and accidentally scheduling a weekend in Grand Marais over the first weekend of the festival, I’ll be seeing less shows than usual. In the past I’ve taken vacation time for this. This is hands down one of my favorite events of the year in the Twin Cities.
