Day 7 2013: The most entertaining show at the Fringe Part Two.

OMG it’s back again! That amazing show has returned to the Winnipeg International Fringe Festival! More intrigue, more comedy, more dramatic situations with an air of dementia and poetry. Many of the cast have returned from last year with some new voices to add to the mixture. It starts at noon again, and runs until midnight every day, just like last year, and the story lines are glorious.

When we left off last year, the orange puppets were scaring the children high on Red Bull, there was a possum in the port-a-potty, and Venue 12 was learning how to use a radio… I can’t wait to see what happens this year!

I am, of course, referring to the chatter on the festival walkie talkies, and WOW is it an awesome show. I’m sure it will move to Broadway one year.

“Venue 16 to Info tent, tickets are on sale for Jake’s Gift… which is good since some of these people have been lined up since last Thursday”

“Ten four Venue 16”

“Site Super to Site Tech”

“Go for Site Tech”

“Where do we keep the possum traps from last year?”

“I have a bunch in the back of the truck… where is the possum?”

“One has gotten into the top of The Cube”

“Well it’s good to see that somebody is finally using that performance space… over”

“Front of House Prep to Site Super”

“Go for Site Super”

“What’s the policy on seeing eye animals?”

“They are permitted in all venues”

“This guy has a seeing eye iguana”

“As long as it’s on a leash, it’s ok”

:Static:

“Venue 16 to Info Tent, tickets are sold out for “Jake’s Gift”

“Info Tent to Venue 16…. DUH!”

:static:

“Venue 2 to Hospo”

“Go for Hospo”

“Is the show ‘Vaginal Exploration While Growing Up in Transcona” a kid’s show?”

“That’s a negative Venue 2”

“There’s a preschool class here with a bunch of comps. The teacher says that program says there are puppets in the show”

“We’ll send some one over…..um…. Over”

:static:

“Beer Tent to Site Tech”

“Go for Site Tech”

“The Venue Technicians are wearing their wrist bands in inappropriate places…”

“I’ll take care of it… tell Woodchuck to put his pants back on”

“Ten Four.”

“VENUE FORTY TWO TECHNICIAN TO SITE TECH! OUR FIRE ALARM IS GOING OFF! REPEAT, OUR FIRE ALARM IS GOING OFF! I THINK IT’S THAT FAULTY SPRINKLER AGAIN!”

“Site Tech to Venue Forty Two, start evacuation procedures and keep us appraised! We’ll be right over. To all Fringe staff, please keep this channel clear!”

“Ten four Site Tech”

:static:

“Ok Site Tech, we’ve started evacuation”

“This….. is….. Venue…. Thirty…. Six…. to….Site….Super…. I…. Can’t….find….our….binder …. in…. the…. backpack…. and…. I….am….short….a….volunteer….ticket….seller…. but…. it’s…. not…. quite…. time…. for…. their…. shift…. yet…. so…. I…. will…. report…. back…. later…. over”

“KEEP THIS LINE CLEAR!”

“Site Tech we have everybody out, over”

“Ok, Fire department is on their way”

:static:

“Venue Forty Two team leader to Front of House, there is a gentleman here with a helmet, yellow suit, axe, and fire hose who doesn’t have a ticket. I told him the show has already started and there are no late comers allowed. Should I send him to you?”

“Beer Tent to Venue Forty Two, is he cute? Maybe we should come to you?”

“LET THE FIREMEN INTO THE VENUE PLEASE!”

So much drama! So much action! Will the possum be able to utilize the upper deck of The Cube? Will Venue Thirty Six get a ticket seller? Will the Firemen be cute?

Check a walkie talkie near you tomorrow for all of the answers…
