The largest Fringe festival in North America kicks off today!

The Edmonton Fringe Festival, one of my favourite events in the entire city! 

I have picked 5 unique shows for you to check out depending on your interests!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) Physical - For those who want to see preformers thrust themselves into something unique that you wont find elsewhere at the Fringe! 

Flight (https://tickets.fringetheatre.ca/performances.php?eventId=601:2965)

Straight from Off-Broadway, FLIGHT premieres in Edmonton. Three acrobats morph into cactuses, waves, and far-off islands as audiences discover The Little Prince like they've never imagined. "Ingenious!" -New York Times. "*****" -Winnipeg Free Press. "The show is magic, with a heart as big as the ocean!" -Best NY Comedy.

Duration: 50 minutes

 

2) Improv - For those who want to see something made up on the spot. You're at the Fringe to have a good time and stay loose, maybe have a few drinks. 

Drinking At The Movies (https://tickets.fringetheatre.ca/performances.php?eventId=601:3104

A cast of six improvise a never before seen movie based on audience suggestions and influences. The audience is the director! There's only one thing better than watching a movie and that's Drinking at the Movies!

Warnings: Violence, Sexual Content, Adult Language, Cartoonish Violence, Death

Duration: 45 minutes

 

3) Drama - You want to learn something at the Fringe, you love a good story with some good comedy worked in!

The Wright Sisters Present: The Wright Brothers (https://tickets.fringetheatre.ca/performances.php?eventId=601:3139)

Will people ever fly? Will man ever traverse the sky in a contraption built by human hands? What about a woman dressed as a man? In this drag-influenced journey to the past, the Wright Sisters take you into the lives and minds of the men who walked on air.

Warnings: Death

Duration: 45 minutes

 

4) Musical - You want to see some singing! Like singing you paid for, not just someone randomly singing on the street. This is fun. Singing on the street not so much.
