Whoa! We’ve entered the Fringe Festival lottery before… but we never made the cut. The best we’ve done is like 116 (or some obscene number like that) on the waiting list. Well, folks, this year we made it to #4 on the wait list. Which means there’s a pretty good chance we’ll be making it into the Fringe Festival.
For those who don’t know, the MN Fringe Festival is an 11-day stretch of grass root performances. It’s a lottery to get in, so there isn’t any vetting process really: meaning you have no idea what you’re going to get when you get in. Independent companies write, direct, and produce shows that make up this performing arts extravaganza. Attendees can purchase a pass that lets them attend the shows.
So cross your fingers, folks… a couple of rural boys from the woods may be heading to the Big City to put on a lil’ show.
