The Toronto Fringe Festival is an annual theatre event that features some of the most interesting, hysterical and gut-wrenching uncensored drama in Toronto. All performances take place in theatres throughout the downtown core. Several productions that made their debut at the Fringe have been shown to larger audiences, such as “Da Kink in My Hair.”
I love “fringeing.” I’ve already bought my pass of 12 tickets and am looking forward to seeing some great live theatre. Tickets are incredibly affordable, with single tickets at $10 and are available by purchasing either online or at the theatre one hour prior to show time. This year’s festival presents over 150 individual productions from Canada and around the world.
The festival runs from Wednesday, July 4 until Sunday, July 15 and the roster includes something for everyone: from musicals to sketch comedy to drama to FringeKids! plays held at one of the local libraries. There are even some interesting venues, with locations like parking lots, school buses and even a bra shop.
All Fringe shows are not chosen by a jury, but rather a lottery system, which gives each play an equal chance.
