Ottawa’s Largest Theatre Festival – Welcome to the Fringe

21 Jun

Free performances at the Fringe Courtyard!

Hungry for some theatre? This week, Ottawa’s largest theatre festival rolled into town, and with it comes a healthy serving of comedy, drama, musicals, and dance spread across a buffet of over 50 shows running until Sunday, June 24th.  The Ottawa Fringe Festival takes place in the city’s Downtown Rideau neighbourhood, and gives independent writers, directors and actors a fantastic showcase to perform across a variety of unique venues.

Theatregoers are known to have discerning tastes; at the Fringe, that means a healthy taste for drinks and food, courtesy of the fine folks at the Fringe Courtyard, the festival’s go-to destination for beer, wine, cider and a variety of delectable foods, all served up in a relaxing outdoor environment next to Arts Court on Daly Ave.  Hit the Courtyard in the evenings, and you’ll be treated to free performances, play previews, and live comedy shows – as well as a chance to mingle with other Fringers, and chat with the stars and producers of a number of shows.

Happy Fringing!
