by Wendy Gennaula • July 5, 2008 • It’s advent season for fringers. The first candle is this Monday night at the “Fringe-for-All #1”:http://www.fringefestival.org/2008/showcases . The second opportunity to work on wish lists will be Wednesday night July 9. Bryant Lake Bowl is hosting The Rabbit Show’s extravaganza “Dance Shows That Got Into the Fringe”:http://blb.ciceron.com/calendar.asp?date=7/9/2008 .
The “full schedule”:http://www.fringefestival.org/2008/schedule is up on the official website. Attending these previews is an easy way to sample what the artists’ have to offer. Bring a pencil and take notes.
In the past, my official “beat” has been kids’ fringe. My “extreme fringer” is now 10. He came along for 10 shows last year and is aiming to crush his personal record. Last year I added musicals. I build my schedule around those 2 genres and then fill in the blanks with whatever strikes my fancy.
Wendy Gennaula is a singer and actress in the Twin Cities. She is the mother of two extraordinary Fringelings.
