2007 Theatre Performer Information
before you apply.
About the Saskatoon Fringe – August 2 – 12, 2007
Our festival is located in the historically rich Broadway area of Saskatoon,
which includes an exciting mix of small shops, restaurants and pubs. Our
five indoor venues are within walking distance of each other and range
in size from 100 to 200 seats. We host a range of outdoor activities (busker,
craft and food vendors) that attract an audience of 40,000 in addition
to our indoor theatre audience of 16,000.
We will host 50 companies, accepted by first come first served basis
to equally represent Canadian and International artists. Three spaces
are reserved for KidsFringe shows and two spaces for our Youth Arts Initiative
New Show Schedule
Each performance group will receive six show times in our new show schedule,
specifically developed for Fringe 2007. All requests for scheduling amendments
related to late arrival and early departure will be considered with appropriate
notice. The program print deadline will determine the final date for adjustments,
therefore requests for amendments should be formally addressed to Performer
Relations for consideration.
Rehearsals, Rehearsal Schedule and Cue Sheets
Each performance group can select a one, two or three hour rehearsal.
Rehearsals will begin on Monday July 30 for local groups and continue
through to the afternoon of August 2 for travelling performers. We ask
that performers provide cue sheets outlining the sound and lighting cues
for your show to our Technical Director. This allows our staff to have
a complete understanding of your show and the specific needs related to
the rehearsal, venue, equipment, and technical expertise.
We include billeting services as part of the experience in Saskatoon for
performers who chose this opportunity. While we make every attempt to
billet performers, and any others directly related to the production of
your show such as stage managers, we cannot guarantee to place everyone.
Please be advised that placement with billets can occur up until the beginning
of the Festival.
