Fringe for Free! Toronto Fringe ticket giveaways for shows playing on Wednesday, July 9th

fringe for free graphicWow, what a heluva first weekend for the Toronto Fringe Festival. Our Mooney on Theatre team has been working overtime over the past few days to bring you reviews of every show in this year’s festival.

We’re obviously excited by the shows on offer for this year’s festival and we hope you are too. To get you a little more excited, how about some free tickets from our daily Fringe for Free contest?

For every day of the festival, we’ll be giving out tickets to 5 shows. Exciting, right? What’s even more exciting is how easy it is to enter – 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.

Check out the list of the 5 shows playing on Wednesday July 9th after the jump.
