Circus of the Stars

Admission is by donation.

What better way to close out the 2018 Fringe than with the Show to Beat All Shows! We can’t tell you what will happen because we don’t know. However, our talented host (Keith Brown, again and always!) pulls this night together with other amazing performers.  Keith and other Fringe performers will entertain, amuse, and surprise you with their closing night antics. Not recommended for those under 16.

Danger Zone

Admission is by donation.

No one really knows what is going to happen here. However, we can tell you that the Danger Zone is for Fringe performers to do something, anything really, that they have always wanted or been afraid to do on stage. The main rule is that it cannot be part of a show that they are doing or have done in the past. Risk taker extraordinaire Keith Brown will host/encourage/dare other performers to dive into the Danger Zone.

From a young age we see the world through rose coloured glasses. While hypnotic and alluring, life’s misfortunes may permeate our once untarnished eyes. Ultimately, we are defined by our receptiveness to calamity, and allowing other colours to come into bloom may be the only way of coming to terms.
