2021 Fringe Looks to You to Fill Venues in Orlando

Press Release

Orlando, Florida, February 11, 2020 – Orlando Fringe, producers of the nation’s longest-running independent Fringe theatre festival, recently announced a program aimed at raising funds through a seat-filling campaign for their festival. As the pandemic continues to keep venues operating in limited capacity, Fringe will fill the otherwise empty seats in each venue with cardboard cutouts bearing the likeness of their patrons. 

“The photo can be a picture of you in your favorite Fringe gear, or your dog that you’ve always wanted to bring to Fringe” said Orlando Fringe Development Director Lisa Hardt. “It could also be a gift for that Fringe-obsessed friend of yours, or whatever your creative heart desires.”
Prices start at only fifty dollars for one cardboard cutout. Various perks like multiple cutouts and venue selection are provided for an additional cost. Fringe patrons will be able to take their cutouts home after the festival has ended.

“The proceeds will help cover operational costs of the festival,” added Lisa Hardt. “This will make our 30th anniversary the best festival yet!”
Reservations for the cutouts are available now on the Fringe fan cutout order form located at bitly.com/FringeFanCutout. Email lisa@orlandofringe.org for any questions.
