The 2009 Indy Fringe Festival will take place August 21-30, 2009. Applications for performance groups are now available on the Indy Fringe website (www.indyfringe.org). The number of show slots is limited, so if you have been thinking of applying, get busy. The slots fill up quickly!
2009 will be the fifth Indy Fringe Festival. It will be my third time to attend. The 2007 Indy Fringe was my first ever “paid” gig as a reviewer. I received a media pass in return for writing about the shows on IndianaAudition.com. I have had my differences with IA’s owner, Joe Urban, but I will always be grateful to him for asking me to help IA cover the Fringe.
I started my own blog in January of this year. When August came around, I asked for and received a media pass to see and write about Fringe shows for my own Indy Theatre Habit. I took a week off from my day job and reviewed 30 of the 2008 Indy Fringe shows (and thought I was going to die before I was through, but it was worth it!) Here is a directory of my 2008 Indy Fringe reviews.
I am looking forward to the 2009 Indy Fringe, too!
