This and that from the Fringe

Here, minus the pretty graphics, is the latest newsletter from the Fringe, including (at the bottom) its drive to raise $20 from a whole lot of people to support itself in its 20th-anniversary year. If you’ve got $20, think about giving it to the Fringe.

Greetings!

July is officially here! It is a busy month at Fringe. We are getting ready to launch our applications for the 20th Annual Orlando Fringe, which will be available online September 1, 2010.

Today is the official Kick-Off of the $20 for Fringe 20 campaign. Please share this information with your friends and family!

The entire staff and Board of Directors at Fringe wish you all a healthy, happy and Fringetastic 4th of July.

TERRY NEWBY

It is with great sadness that the Fringe family learned that Terry Newby passed away earlier this week.

On behalf of the board, staff, patrons and artists of Orlando Fringe, we all express our deepest sympathies to Albert and Terry’s family and closest friends. Terry volunteered countless hours for the festival, patronized numerous shows, photo archived for several years and he and his partner Albert were billets for many of our artists.
