    Minnesota Fringe Festival

    16 different theater venues around Minneapolis
    Check the web site for schedule and details
    http://www.fringefestival.org/

    The Minnesota Fringe Festival is one of the largest non-juried, non-censored theater festivals. This year, it encompasses 16 venues and a total of 800+ theater performances. General tickets are $12 per show, but discounts are available when you buy in bulk.

    While I won't be involved in a show, I will be volunteering many, many hours as a box office maven at various venues.
