On the Fringe (WTH?)
On The Fringe with Denyse Terry
Where will you be Fringing this year? One fabulous factor of the Hamilton Fringe is the volume of shows to take in from July 18-28. This year, our tenth anniversary, theatre companies from Montreal to Victoria, New York and beyond, join Hamilton’s thespians to present comedies, dramas, satires, love stories, musicals, children’s shows – the list this year is bigger than ever.
To help you get to know some of the folks offering up Fringe shows this year, we present our new interview series, On The Fringe. I am meeting around town to talk, in person and via Skype, to a variety of companies. Most of these folks are busy in rehearsals right now, in their home city and here in Hamilton. Every week, from now till July, I will be sharing conversations On The Fringe with you. Enjoy!
How well do you know Hamilton? For On The Fringe interviews, I am taking my trusty old-school-notebook to a different location each time. Can you figure out, from the picture provided, WTH (Where The Heck) I am? Test your knowledge of Hamilton while learning about some of the exciting works we are presenting in this year’s Fringe Festival. Enjoy these previews and, if you guess my location correctly, from the accompanying picture, you could win two tickets to that show! Just email me with the location and your contact information: firstname.lastname@example.org Have fun! See you around Hamilton – and at the Fringe!
