What’s on at Part II of Vancouver Fringe Mini-Festival

Fresh off a hugely successful first mini-festival, and a safe and exciting return to live theatre, the Vancouver Fringe Theatre Society have announced programming for the Fringe Festival’s second offering.

Vancouver Fringe’s second mini-festival takes place October 1-10 on Granville Island at Performance Works with a maximum capacity of 50. Tickets are $15 and available online at VancouverFringe.com. A Fringe membership fee is required to purchase Festival tickets and starts at $7.

The lineup for this second round of staggered performances includes:


One Man Pride and Prejudice | October 2-4, 8, & 10 

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an actor in possession of a woman’s story must by in want of a wife – to help him adapt it. Charles Ross tackles the greatest romantic comedy: the intrigue, dancing, and proposals are given the one-man once-over. Produced by Victoria B.C.’s Chicken For Supper Productions, co-written by Charles Ross and Lisa Hebden and directed by Danette Bouchere, One Man Pride and Prejudice celebrates the love for a story and letting one’s uninhibited nerd out – even if you’re a man telling a woman’s story.

Rob Teszka: Magic Dropout  | October 1, 3-5, 7, & 9 

Coquitlam’s Rob Teszka, almost-PhD of magic presents an irreverent magic show about failure! Enjoy a mind-blowing cocktail of tongue-in-cheek takes on topics from Mai Tais to academic burnout. Join Rob Teszka, Magic Dropout, for the unexpected results of a decade delving into the psychology of magic.

Spectral Theatre’s Late Night Double Feature | October 1, 3-5, 7, & 9 

We welcome you to the premiere of this original Canadian script written by W. Thomas Gibson and produced by Vancouver’s Spectral Theatre Society. The Time: Present Day. The Place: Arcadia, the Canada of a universe orthogonal to our own. Here, self-enhancement with genetic technologies is largely unregulated, and despite the best efforts of the recently-formed Biological and Genetic Threats Directorate, democracy is about to face its newest and most insidious threat.

Study Abroad – The Musical! Destination: U.K. | October 2-4, 6, 8, & 10 

When music student Cheryl’s boyfriend broke up with her halfway through her degree, she had to get the heck outta Dodge! From hellish homestays and British flings to rediscovering her true passion, this trip was more than she bargained for. Join Vancouver’s own Cheryl Olvera in her adventurous escape to Brighton, England – all through song!

Programming for the remaining festivities will be announced at a later date.  For more information on the 2020 Vancouver Fringe Festival, please visit: VancouverFringe.com. For COVID-19 and The Fringe head to: VancouverFringe.com/covid-19-updates/
