My Fringe Schedule: Day 7

I managed to schedule three performances tonight:

CFF_Fruit Flies Like a Banana logoFRUIT FLIES LIKE A BANANA
The Fourth Wall
Hudson, MA

Winner of Audience & Critic’s Choice Awards at Orlando Fringe, and earning 5 stars and Patrons’ Pick at Minnesota Fringe, The Fourth Wall combines music, theatre, and dance in this madcap variety hour. In addition, YOU determine the show order by choosing cards from a deck! At the cry of “Pick a card, any card!” a company member dashes into the house to audience members eagerly waiting to choose whatever high-art shenanigan will come next.

Bowman and Yarborough
Portland, OH

Written & performed by Sadie Bowman & Donna Kay Yarborough

Last fringe, they sang their way into our…hearts with The Famous Haydell Sisters Comeback Tour. This year they are making a comeback as Frank and Dino.

The Rat Pack is back! Those hip swingers who epitomized mid-century male swagger live on–and face their own music. Forced to broaden their horizons in the bodies of a couple of broads, Frank and Dino ring-a-ding-ding away their time in purgatory examining timeless gender issues via classic songs with new opinions. The Fresno Bee calls it “razor-sharp…blisteringly funny…a MUST-SEE.”

CFF_Twiggy FartdustTWIGGY FARTDUST AND HER NEMESIS FROM MARS
Colleen Ladrick
Cincinnati, OH

Cast: John Patrick Maddock, Leah R. Hulgin, Zachary Francis Stewart, Alyssa Magarian & Colleen Ladrick

In this glam-rock-karaoke musical an alien must rescue her true love from her nemesis. Join Sergeant Twiggy Fartdust as she adventures to Mars to save Yoshimi from the clutches of her intergalactic enemy, Kevin.
