Orlando Fringe Festival 2011

There's still a whole week to go - until Monday, May 30th - in this year's 20th Annual Orlando International Fringe Theater Festival 2011.  For those who don't know, the Orlando Fringe Festival is a 12-day event that has taken place every year since 1991.  Modeled after the original Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Orlando Fringe Festival is the largest of its kind in the United States, showcasing art, music, dance, and especially theater. 

Their motto: 100% Uncensored, 100% Unjuried, 100% Accessible, and 100% of the ticket sales go directly to the artists involved.  The event is held at Loch Haven Park, just north of Downtown.  Single performances cost $8 to $11 (plus an $8 entry button good for the whole week).  Tickets can be bought online or at the festival, but be sure to bring cash.

For more information, check out Orlando Weekly's thorough Always Be Prepared guide.  For reviews and other news, visit Orlando Weekly's main Fringe page as well as The Daily City's Our Guide to Fringe.  The official Fringe site offers a calendar of shows and more.
