Unleash Creativity! Expect the Unexpected!
From April 24 to April 27, Central College will pop with a variety of music, theatre and art events as the Central College Fringe Festival unfurls. The student-organized event will showcase the talents of college and high school students, faculty and community members in a wide range of nontraditional settings.
The performances are short (limited to 40 minutes), varied and within easy walking distance of one another. Audience members might catch Celtic music in the Vermeer Science Center, view art work in the theatre building, hear spoken word in the gallery and participate in a drum circle at the fire pit; all in one evening! Each date will bring a different mixture of not-to-be missed entertainment, talent and venues.
The purchase of a wristband for $1 will give you access to all four days of the events organized by the FRINGE. For more information about the Central College Fringe Festival, daily event schedules and locations visit http://centralfringefest.weebly.com/.
