2017 Orlando Fringe Winter Mini-Fest Preview

Press Release from Orlando Fringe

ORLANDO, FLORIDA – The OrlandoFringe, Orlando’s highest rated annual event, is about to cut the ribbon on their newest festival which will fill the void that many patrons have had since the 25th annual festival ended last May. The inaugural Orlando Fringe Winter Mini-Fest will take place January 5-8th at venues within the Lowndes Shakespeare Center, 812 E. Rollins Street, Orlando FL, 32803. The festival will also take use of the Shakespeare Centers’ courtyard to host their ever popular beer tent as well as food offerings provided by The Hammered Lamb.

To attend any of the forty-nine different performances, patrons need a $3 reusable festival mini-button and a ticket to the show. All tickets are $15 with the exception of the Fringe produced final installment of their ‘Movies Out Loud’ series featuring Jeff Jones and Doug Bowser adding hilarious commentary to the 90’s cult classic, ‘Spice World.’

The festival producers have asked twenty artist and producers to return to their stages. Eleven acts are from the Central Florida area, one from Georgia and Massachusetts, two from North Carolina, three from New York, two from Canada and one from Australia.

The majority of the shows selected for the Winter Mini-Fest were chosen because of their award winning critical acclaim. “It’s a great chance for people to see shows they didn’t get to see or go to things they want to see again,” said George Wallace, the festivals Executive Director. “You can revisit old shows or find something new.” Festival producer Michael Marinaccio believes “this new event gives our loyal audience a fix to tide them over between festivals but also serve as an introduction to the first time Fringe patron.”

Tickets are available on the festival website at www.ofwinterminifest.com as well as the Orlando Fringe smartphone app. There are also a limited amount of 5-pass ticket packages for $60.
