My musical, Theme Park Diva, will be presented as part of the 2012 Orlando Fringe Festival from May 17-27, 2012.
What is Fringe?
A 13-day-festival that is founded on the concept of offering 100% unjuried, 100% uncensored, 100% accessible theatre, music, dance, and art to all types and ages where 100% of the box office ticket sales go directly back to the artists within The Fringe. The Orlando Fringe is the longest running Fringe Festival in the United States, celebrating 21 years as “Orlando’s most unique cultural experience”. Orlando Fringe is a proud member of the United States Association of Fringe Festivals (USAFF) http://www.fringefestivals.us
and the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals (CAFF) http://www.fringefestivals.com
Basically, it is theater, dance, music, comedy, and lots of crazy stuff in between. Shows are rated G to R with some shows offering nudity! (Not mine....but we do say "bitch" twice and "A$$" once or twice!)
For a much more detailed explanation of the Fringe, check out their site: http://orlandofringe.org/how/howto/
My show is a musical about the made-up Galaxy World USA and the cast of the park's BIG show: Music Music Music Music and More!
It features a cast of 11 made up of many Disney and Broadway veterans. I first wrote the show back in 1997 as part of the end of season banquet for Busch Gardens VA. I have produced it twice in the past at the Orlando Fringe in 2003 and 2005.
I'd love to see you at the show! Tickets are $12 (which included the $1 service fee) and can be purchased online now right here:https://t5.clicknprint.com/Online/?siteID=1421&cartID=42ca013d-f2b1-426a-b09b-24c4114f0b15&eventid=
Just scroll down to my show "Theme Park Diva" and pick your date and quantity of tickets.
NOTE: I am also offering a $2 discount to all theme park employees. HOWEVER, you can only get this discount if you purchase the tickets in person at the festival. My venue holds 360 people, but I would suggest getting tickets early in case we sell out.
Box Office hours on weekdays are 4 PM-Midnight and weekends 10 AM-Midnight. Orlando Fringe Box offices are located in the lower-lobby of The Lowndes Shakespeare Center and the back lobby of The Orlando REP from May 17-27th.
Also, you must have a Fringe button to get into any show. This button costs $8 (I think) and you only need to purchase it once.
There is also a BEER TENT! And lots and lots of food vendors on the lawn. It's a great place to hang out between shows and talk to other guests about what they liked and didn't like.
And for those so inclined, I am looking for sponsors for my show. Basically, I have spent about $3000 of my own money on fees, ads, and other expenses. I have sold ads in my program and raised about $700. If you want to be listed as a sponsor or have your website listed, I am accepting sponsors for $25 a line in my program.
