Fringe need-to-knows

The Coast - - COVER STORY -

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.
