BRATTLEBORO- The first Vermont Fringe Festival is now accepting applications from actors and directors wishing to partake in the two-day event September 19 and 20.

The Brattleboro-based festival is a showcase presenting eight new short plays by emerging and established performing artists to the general public in easily accessible downtown venues. Jack Golden, spokesperson for the organizing committee, said that the purpose of the festival is to introduce audiences to shows and emerging area artists that they might not have the opportunity to otherwise experience, and to provide actors and directors a readily accessible venue to showcase and develop their work. “The effort here,” he stated, “strives both to build a greater audience base for the richly talented and diversified pool of performing artists in the area, and to help support the economic vitality of the Brattleboro area with the abundant resident artistic energy.”

Performance pieces should be original, short in length, and involve a minimum set. Each work chosen will take place in a single venue multiple times on the evenings of September 19 and 20. The online application and further information can be found at the Vermont Fringe Festival Facebook page or by contacting Fred Lee at Deadline for applications is July 15.
