Hey, playwrights, actors, and anyone else who loves the stage, or hell, just loves performing for others: the Tucson Fringe Festival wants you!
From their website, tucsonfringe.org:
Fringe doesn’t curate. Fringe is different. Fringe loves new work. Fringe restores the artist’s creative influence. Fringe doesn’t charge you an arm and a leg. Fringe doesn’t tell you to eat your vegetables. Fringe gives all the money back to the artist. Fringe is a laboratory for ideas. Fringe is the future of performance. Fringe is community. Fringe is awesome.
Seems biased, but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt — if only because their call for performers says that they welcome playwrights, really talented sign twirlers, state legislators (and other clowns) and pretty much anyone or anything willing to perform with them.
For more on Tucson Fringe Festival, check out their website — they've got descriptions of the last two years of Fringe, as well as photos and links to Fringe's origins.
For those wishing to just spectate, we've got you covered too: Tucson's Third Annual Fringe Festival is set to take place March 1-3, 2013. Circle those calendars, people.
