Studio “B” at the newly constructed La Nouvelle Scène (333 King Edward Ave.) has been booked as an official venue for the 20th Ottawa Fringe Festival. This space has capacity for 80 seats.
“Official” venues are venues rented by the Ottawa Fringe and then programmed by an annual lottery. The performers keep 100% of their ticket sales. The Festival also accepts Bring Your Own Venue (BYOV) submissions.
Confirmed venues for the 2016 Ottawa Fringe Festival are:
- Arts Court Theatre (2 Daly Ave.)
- ODD Box (2 Daly Ave.)
- Academic Hall (133 Séraphin-Marion Pvt.)
- Studio Léonard-Beaulne (135 Séraphin-Marion Pvt.)
- La Nouvelle Scène (333 King Edward Ave.)
Expect the number of venues to double with BYOVs.
Fringe regulars are likely excited by the omission of Arts Court Library from that list. And they have a reason to be! The Library is changing during construction of the Arts Court redevelopment and Ottawa Art Gallery expansion, and won’t work as a Fringe venue… some would say never did.
In the new tower will be several theatre-specific and multi-purpose rooms. It’s gonna be heaven for Fringe fans and artists.
Mark your calendars for the 20th Ottawa Fringe Festival: June 15–26, 2016. Online and in print, the official program will be announced in May when passes go on sale.
Donors get their print program and Fringe Pin in the mail. For info → ottawafringe.com/patrons.
107 days until Fringe! See you soon.
