Fringe for Free! Toronto Fringe Ticket Giveaways for Shows on Wednesday, July 6th!

Fringe For Free GraphicGood evening, people of Fringe! This is a special late-night edition of Fringe for Free, or — as we call it internally — the “someone forgot he had contests to post and wound up in a 14-hour rehearsal, didn’t he” edition. To commemorate this special occasion, we’ll be holding these contests open an extra few hours, so they close at 11:00 PM instead of the usual 7:00.

But beyond that, it’s the same as always: five hot shows, free tickets to each, and all you need to do to win is send us an email. Enter one, enter all five, tell your friends, and see some theatre!

Well, we’re here as usual to make things a little easier for you with free tickets to five Fringe shows playing on Tuesday. We’re giving out tickets to five shows for every day of the festival, so be sure to check back every day! In the meantime, click “Read More” for the contest rules, times and descriptions of the 5 incredible shows we’ve got lined up for Tuesday, July 5th!

Plus, check us out for reviews of every show in the festival as well as general buzz and features about other aspects. For the next couple weeks it’s all Fringe all the time around here.

Fringe for Free! Toronto Fringe Ticket Giveaways for Shows on Wednesday, June 29

fringe-for-free-graphicDid you miss us, Toronto? We’ve certainly missed you! Fringe is our favourite time of the year, and we love nothing more than sharing it with you — so every summer, by the kindness of dozens of Fringe Festival companies, we get to literally give it away.

Starting today, we’ll be posting a daily list of 5 shows. Shoot us an email and you might win a pair of tickets to one of the hottest productions in town.

Of course, we’re posting other stuff as well: comprehensive coverage of the festival, with a review of every single production by the end of opening weekend; features, interviews, photographs and summaries; news, analysis, whimsies and warnings, we’ll have it all.

But while this is all fine and well, Fringe is about seeing theatre! So click “Read More” for the contest rules and a little something about the 5 shows we’ve got lined up for June 29, opening day!
