Fringe festival returns to Regina

June 7, 2017 by  

The Regina International Fringe Theatre Festival is taking place in the city for eight days next month.

The festival presents spoken word, drama, musical, dance, comedy and magic performances at various venues throughout the city. Some of the participating locations are the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, Artesian on 13th and the Saskatchewan Express Theatre. There will be plenty of free outdoor activities as well as activities taking place within the venues where visitors are encouraged to pay what you can.

The event will start with a one-day Kid’s Fringe Festival with all of the performances and activities aimed at children.

Tickets for each performance are $12 or $7 on the preview night. This year’s main festival offers 36 shows by theater troupes from around the world. Some of those are “Bike Face” from Toronto, “Dry” from Regina, “Letters to West 113th” from Calgary, “Picnics at the Asylum” from California and “Son of Africville” from Victoria.

Organizers are still hiring volunteers to help with all aspects of the event including ticket taking, clean up and providing information to the public. Regina print companies are often asked to help provide printed advertising for the event.

The Regina International Fringe Theatre Festival will be held in Regina from July 1-8. For the most up-to-date information about the shows or to become a volunteer, visit the official event website.
