Fringe, The: Acting Up

Country Available: Canada, USA
Every August half a million people flock to Edmonton’s Old Strathcona (the funkiest on the prairies) to watch world-class theatre productions in this pressure-packed, highly competitive environment.

With over 150 other shows in competition for a limited audience, out stars-to-be must deliver a high-quality production, as well as a professional marketing strategy to wi over both the media and the crowds. Are they artists, or entrepreneurs?

Our newbies’ efforts are contrasted with those of more experienced international actors including Die-Nasty; an established troupe of world-class comic improv performers. Die-Nasty is directed by SCTV alumni Dana Anderson and their live special guests regularly include Joe Flaherty (SCTV), Nathan Fillion (Firefly), and Ron Pederson (Mad TV).

Conceived for 18-34 year-olds who are into hip humour and live improvised comedy, THE FRINGE will showcase the hilarious and at times traumatic quest of a diverse and appealing group of young up-and-comers as they pursue their dreams.
