St. Lou Fringe http://news.stlpublicradio.org en Fringe Festival Returns To Midtown St. Louis With An Eclectic Mix Of Shows http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/fringe-festival-returns-midtown-st-louis-eclectic-mix-shows <p>It might seem odd to use the word tradition in connection with a festival as independently-minded as the St. Lou Fringe, but with the first fringe festival held some 60 years ago, St. Louis is indeed following in the tradition of Edinburgh, Scotland and hundreds of other cities in hosting its own Fringe. The festival is dedicated to providing performing opportunities to an eclectic group of artists, and making those performances accessible to a wide-range of people.</p> Fri, 13 Jun 2014 21:44:36 +0000 Camille Phillips 37159 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Fringe Festival Returns To Midtown St. Louis With An Eclectic Mix Of Shows St. Louis Fringe Festival Wannabes Need To Act Fast http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/st-louis-fringe-festival-wannabes-need-act-fast <p>If you or your group is seeking a spot in St. Louis' <a href="http://stlfringe.com">2014 Fringe Festival of performing arts</a>, you’d better have your fingers on the keyboard Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. sharp.</p><p>Last year, available slots for <a href="http://stlfringe.com/artists/applying/">online submissions</a> filled up in less than two seconds, according to <a href="https://www.stlbeacon.org/#!/content/25633/piro_fringe_festival_preview_061912?coverpage=1047">Fringe founder Em Piro</a>.</p> Tue, 14 Jan 2014 05:09:19 +0000 Nancy Fowler 32968 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org St. Louis Fringe Festival Wannabes Need To Act Fast From Children’s Theater To Burlesque – St. Lou Fringe Festival Returns For Second Year http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/children-s-theater-burlesque-st-lou-fringe-festival-returns-second-year <p>The <a href="http://stlfringe.com/">St. Lou Fringe Festival</a> debuted last year and is back for a five day festival this month which takes place at performance spaces throughout Midtown.</p><p>Em Piro, founder and executive director of St. Lou Fringe told <em>Cityscape</em> host Steve Potter, “the fringe model has been used worldwide for over 60 years and it was a really exciting opportunity to bring it here to St. Louis.”</p> Fri, 07 Jun 2013 20:23:13 +0000 Alex Heuer & Mary Edwards 27174 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org From Children’s Theater To Burlesque – St. Lou Fringe Festival Returns For Second Year
