By now, the Toronto Fringe Festival is in full swing, and you may already have some idea of what shows are on your “must see” list. As we continue our madcap tour through every show in this year’s festival, we’re still finding the time to offer you free tickets from our daily Fringe for Free contest!
While some Fringers are intense planners, mapping out routes between theatres, others enjoy a little spontaneity in their theatre-going. Maybe today’s shows are on your must-see list, or maybe they’ll be surprise additions to your schedule.
Either way, it couldn’t be easier to enter! For every day of the festival, we’ll be giving out tickets to 5 shows. You can enter each of the five contests by sending us an email (more details below).
Remember, you need to enter each contest individually. If we pick your name, you’ve got two tickets heading your way, so watch out for that confirmation e-mail!
Here are the 5 shows playing on Sunday, July 5th, after the jump.
To enter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put the show’s title in the subject line, and ensure we have your full name in the body. (We promise that your email address will not be used for any other purpose: it will not be added to any mailing lists, sold to third parties, or anything like that.)
- Each email counts as a single entry. If you want to enter all 5 contests, you must send 5 emails.
- Tickets are non-transferable and are only for the date and time indicated below. Tickets may not be exchanged. Please ensure you can attend the performance listed.
- All entries must be received by 7 PM on the day before the performance. The drawing will be held as soon as possible after that time, and winners will be informed immediately. Winners are required to confirm their attendance by 10 AM on the morning of the performance.
- Tickets will be held in your name at the venue box office, available 1 hour before the performance. Tickets will only be held until 15 minutes before curtain: any comps left unclaimed at that juncture may be sold.
Today’s Toronto Fringe Festival Contests

Caws & Effect is a modern fable that explores the unexpected consequences that arise after a crow plants a magical seed. The story is told using handmade layered projections, puppetry, masks, and an original musical score. All aspects of the show are created and performed by two artists: Mind of a Snail’s Chloe Ziner & Jessica Gabriel. Their large-scale shadow puppetry is quirky and beautiful, like an early National Film Board animation performed live before your eyes.

Mattie and Maybelle Haydell were on top of the world as teen queen superstars of the country music business back in the early ’90s. Best remembered for classic hits like “Seven Seconds (Too Short a Ride),” “Wrangler Butt” and “Your Broken Heart (Is No Excuse To Be An Asshole),” their meteoric career took a swandive when their last record flopped in 1993, amid personal turmoils influenced by major world events and exacerbated by the pressures of fame. Superfans worldwide feared the day would never come when these sisters, estranged from each other to tabloid proportions, would reunite onstage, but at long last America’s country sweethearts are lifting their voices in famous harmony–for the first time since 1993!

Murder is like, super inconvenient when you’re trying to throw a party. Two very Real Housewives kind of, sort of, probably for sure kill a staff member as they’re setting up for a tiki gala.
