One Week to Fringe

by Patrick Gauthier

June 7, 2012

One week to go!

Artists are arriving from out of town, posters are going up on the Arts Court Fence, and technical rehearsals are starting. And in only seven short days from now (168 hours) I’ll be sitting in a theatre at or around Arts Court, watching my first Fringe show of 2012 (and afterwards you can likely find me in the Courtyard). I’m still putting together my festival schedule, but if you haven’t started yours, you can pick up your 2012 Ottawa Fringe program at Ottawa Public Library branches, Bridgehead locations across the city, and Arts Court. Or, you can download a PDF of the schedule right here!

While you’re waiting away the hours until Fringe officially begins, check out Behind the Fringe, a new podcast hosted by Executive Producer Natalie Joy Quesnel.  Or, why not take a few minutes and fill out our audience survey? We’re trying to make the Fringe better, and need your help to do it.  We have great prizes available to anyone who completes a survey, including a trip for two to the Stratford Festival (brought to you by VIA Rail and Best Western Plus The Parlour Historic Inn and Suites), and passes to the Canadian War Museum and the Museum of Civilization.

One week to Fringe! What’s the first show you’re going to see…?
