Changes in Orlando Fringe schedule

My friend and astute former editor, Mary Frances Emmons, has suggested a separate place with a list of all the changes to the Fringe schedule. As usual, she’s right. I’ll post them here and also put a separate page under the Fringe tab on my home page, and you can find them there too. Got that?

Here you go:

IMPORTANT: Per the Fringe, no one under the age of 21 will be allowed to purchase a ticket to, or attend this event. This is an approx. 17 hour event (1020 minutes approx.), departing from the Shakespeare Center lobby. It includes a 13.8-mile car ride from Orlando Loch Haven Park to Wekiwa Springs State Park in Apopka, an approximately 3.5-mile hike to a primitive camping site in a wilderness area (i.e. no vehicle access, facilities, restrooms or showers), overnight camping (in a single tent; comfortably sleeps six), followed by a return 3.5-mile hike and 13.8-mile car ride back to Orlando Loch Haven Park in the morning. There may not be cellular phone service at the camp site. Please plan accordingly and take water, a compass, a map and anything else you may need (i.e. sleeping bag, waterproof boots). There will be a brief stop at a supermarket on the way to Wekiwa Springs State Park. (Wekiwa Springs State Park is closed from 6/1/2010 to 12/31/2012 due to construction. In other words, this is your last chance to go before the end of the world.)

There is a one (1) night and one (1) ticket limit per person. Sorry, No Fringe Bucks or Passes accepted. (You just might want to camp out.) Remember: Transportation is complimentary with your ticket purchase for this camping experience.
