Here it comes! The 2009 Toronto Fringe Festival is just around the corner. Well, three and a half weeks away, but who’s counting.
The festival runs from July 1 – July 12, 2009. That’s right, it kicks off on Canada Day, and I can’t think of a better way to spend a statutory holiday than fringing.
Electronic copy of the Fringe program:
If you want to do some planning then you’ll be excited to find that the PDF of the Fringe Program is now available on the Fringe website. It takes a bit to download, but has all the information you’ll need.
Hard copies of the Fringe program:
Starting June 15, until the beginning of the festival, hard copies of the program will be available at:
Toronto Fringe Office, 344 Bloor St. West, #208 (Spadina/Bloor)
Book City, 501 Bloor St. West (Annex)
Book City, 2350 Bloor St. West (Bloor West Village)
Book City, 348 Danforth Ave (at Chester)
Book City,1950 Queen St. East (Beaches)
Pages, 256 Queen St West (at John)

Once the festival starts you can get them at all Fringe Venues, and the Fringe Club (located at Tranzac – 292 Brunswick Ave)
Want more detailed information than the little blurbs in the program?
In the next little bit I’ll be publishing the press releases of the companies/shows that have sent me info. This may help inform your decisions, since the little tiny blurb that there is space for on the program isn’t very revealing.
This isn’t going to be a ‘curated’ list at all, basically, if they send it, I will post it.
So, keep checking back to Mooney on Theatre for Toronto Fringe Festival coverage.
