An almost last-minute plea from the Fringe

OK, those of you who wait until the crack of dawn to commit yourselves: Here’s an (almost) last-minute plea from the Fringe:

Hey Fringers!

The count down is here. 9 days. WOW!

OK … so here are the immediate things you should do:

1) VOLUNTEER! Here is the info:
LAST TRAINING! Remember to bring or refer a friend for 2 additional Fringe Bucks!

What: LAST Volunteer Training before the Festival
When: Thursday, May 13 at 6 PM
Where: Lowndes Shakespeare Center, 812 East Rollins Street, Orlando. In the Patrons’ Room.

If you are an experienced volunteer and can’t make the training, you can still sign up for shifts! We realize that several of you are out of town or can not coordinate your schedules. Please read below to see available shifts for the entire Festival. If you want to sign up for a shift, please e-mail


I still need a couple of volunteers to help. Please meet our Technical Director, Amy, at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center at 8:45 a.m.

Please remember that this is manual labor. You will be carrying heavy things and getting dirty.


For those of you who signed up for a box office shift or plan to sign up, it is required that you attend a box office training.

The cashier training with the equipment will be held on Saturday, May 15 at 2:00 p.m at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center. Please make sure you attend.


I will need 3 to 4 volunteers to help set up the volunteer room on Monday, May 17 starting at 9 a.m.

We will be moving boxes and possibly getting dirty so please dress appropriately.

Please let me know if you are interested in helping.


I am more than happy to bring snacks for the volunteers but you can only survive for on crackers and cookies for so long. If possible, please bring water, sodas, Gatorade/ Powerade or anything else to drink or any baked goods and healthy alternatives to eat.

Last year’s volunteers loved all the goodies that were brought in and I’m sure all donations will be appreciated again this year.

Fringefully Yours,

Beth Marshall
Producing Artistic Director
Orlando Fringe
