The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Theater Resources Unlimited and Paul Lucas Productions

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Theater Resources Unlimited and Paul Lucas Productions invite New York artists, designers and producers to attend the 2010 Edinburgh Festival Fringe Roadshow, a free event for one day only on Saturday, January 9, 2010 from 11 am to 1pm at Barrow Street Theatre in Greenwich Village, NYC.

Come listen to, and meet with, an international panel of experts on producing at the annual Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the largest and best-established performing arts festival in the world! Featuring award-winning producers and members of the Fringe Society staff, this event is an opportunity for professionals and amateurs alike to learn how to succeed, and avoid the pitfalls, of producing in Edinburgh. The Roadshow also welcomes anyone interested in participating in this summer’s productions.

The Fringe, now entering its 64th year, will be held from August 6 - 30, 2010 in the breathtakingly beautiful city of Edinburgh, Scotland. Last year, the Fringe comprised 34,265 performances of 2,098 shows in 265 venues in just three week and a half weeks! And they sold over 1.8 million tickets!

Over 1,000 theatre promoters and over 1,200 accredited members of the press attend the Fringe every year to scout or review shows. As a result hundreds of shows are able to tour after the Fringe as a result of participation. Maximizing these opportunities is just one of the subjects that will be covered at this event.

The Fringe is an open arts festival, which means that anyone can perform without any constraints from the Festival Fringe Society. This Society (commonly known as the Fringe Office) does not actually produce any of the shows or run venues. They do, however, help performers every step of the way to maximize their experience on the Fringe.

So come learn all about the Fringe and meet producers and theatre professionals from around the world. The panel discussion will be followed by an opportunity for networking.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Road Show will take place from 11 am to 1 pm at Barrow Street theatre, 27 Barrow Street (off 7th Avenue South), NYC. Registration will begin at 10:45 a.m. and the panel discussion will be followed by an opportunity to meet members of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe staff, including the new Chief Executive of the Fringe Society, Kath Mainland.

PARTICIPATION IS FREE, however, reservations can be made by e-mailing participants@edfringe.com no later than January 8, 2009 to be guaranteed a spot. Let them know how you heard about the event when you RSVP.
