According to Executive Director, George Wallace, Orlando Fringe (Facebook | Website) hit some record numbers this year.
The annual theater festival in Loch Haven Park sold 7,709 more tickets, paid $371,153 to its performing artists, drew 11,403 people to the family-friendly Kids Fringe (Facebook) at Mennello Museum and sold 32 pieces of art at Visual Fringe.
Initial numbers show that the overall attendance of the festival, including free entertainment venues like the outdoor stage and beer garden, increased by 30 percent.
The Orlando Fringe staff has already started planning for next year’s festival, as it will be the 25th anniversary with their Club 25 initiative. Club 25 celebrates the quarter century mark for the festival with VIP treatment for Club members, featuring different tiers of rewards like member-only access to an air-conditioned tent on the lawn, 25 percent off Fringe events year-round, private receptions, $2 off beer and wine, early access to purchase tickets, admission buttons and more.
