CINCINNATI, OHIO (April 24, 2018) Coming to the Cincinnati Fringe Festival this June is ExTrashVaganza!, a brand new 60-minute musical comedy for adults full of strange stories and even stranger puppets.
A single mannequin leg and a fedora become a pun-slinging noir detective. An accidentally broken lamp becomes the star of a sit-com parody about a couple who never meant to become parents.
Go ahead and leave the kids at home for this two-person variety show!
Paul Strickland and Erika Kate MacDonald, the winners of the past two Critics’ Picks of the Fringe Awards (2016 and 2017), have teamed up to make what they call a “strange-sational” musical puppet comedy.
ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
Paul and Erika are local creators who actually moved to Cincinnati because of this city’s amazing creative opportunities – specifically, the Cincinnati Fringe Festival, where they have been creating hit new shows for the last four years.
Paul and Erika’s Fringe shows have sold out every year that they have performed at the Cincy Fringe. Past shows: Balls of Yarns (2017), Ice Candle (2016), My Left Teeth (2016), Tales Too Tall for Trailers (2015), Papa Squat (2014), and Ain’t True & Uncle False (2013).
They tour their work professionally across the U.S. and Canada.
