1 Tickets, please: Visit atlanticfringe.tickethalifax.com, the handy onestop shop for your essential ticket needs. Halifax Fringe says: “During the festival the main box office will be The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op (2203 Gottingen Street), 10am-10pm daily until festival’s end. Tickets are also on sale at each venue, half-hour before show time. Cash or credit card payment accepted. All pre-sales must arrive 10 minutes before showtime. There will be no late admittance. There are no refunds.” So now you know.
2 It’s not all plays: There’s lots to do in the way of workshops (like graphic design for theatre and Laban Method Movement Analysis for actors), a live talk show, even pilates classes. Hit that schedule up and sample it all!
3 Getting info: We’ve got reviews, lots and lots of them, by plenty of reviewers, organized by day and compiled by Coast theatre critic Michael Lake—just head to thecoast.ca to read them. Follow Halifax Fringe on twitter @halifaxfringe or on Facebook for up-to-the-minute updates. Use #halifaxfringe2017 for all of your important missives.
4 Just do it: Don’t overthink it. Fringe is loosey-goosey and so should you be. If something sounds interesting, just go, give it a chance and an open mind. Try something out of your comfort zone and above all else, have a good time.
