Forest Roberts Theatre Presents Fringe Festival

Marquette, MI October 3, 2018 – Northern Michigan University’s Forest Roberts Theatre will present “Fringe Festival: Fighting for the Arts.” Each production is a collection of theater, music and dance pieces performed, directed and choreographed by NMU students. Productions will include Doubt, a contemporary dance piece with original choreography by Shannon Stilwell; Beauté, a contemporary dance piece with original choreography by Jill Grundstrom; Jule, an excerpt from a swashbuckler comedy by Shelley Russell; and Twelfth Night, an excerpt from the famous comedy by William Shakespeare.

Performances are scheduled in the James A. Panowski Black Box Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4-Saturday, Oct. 6, and Wednesday, Oct. 10-Saturday, Oct. 13. There will be an additional 1 p.m. matinee on Saturday, Oct. 13. Tickets are $15 for the general public, $10 for high school students, and $5 for NMU students.

The concept of a Fringe Festival started in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1947, when eight theatre groups were shunned from the Edinburgh International Festival. The Fringe Festival at FRT follows this idea. It was initially put together to allow graduating seniors to showcase capstone projects, but also features work from various students in the theatre and dance program.
