ISU FreeStage Fringe Festival Happening Right Now

Yes, I'm late out of the gate with this one, but I only got the flyer today. And besides, there's plenty of FreeStage Fringe action still happening, with performances tonight through Saturday, November 10, 2012.

So what's up? Tonight your options are The Improvised Musical at 6 pm at Centennial West 301 and/or Where the Sidewalk Ends at 8 pm in Centennial East 115.

Tomorrow night, it's Still Ruminating, a Devised Piece at 8 pm in CW 301 and Axe Lizzy at 10 pm in the Westhoff lobby.

And on Friday the 9th, The Improvised Musical returns at 5:30 pm in CW 301, along with a pair called Sure Thing and The Mystery at Twickham Vicarage at 7 pm in CE 115, Under the Influence (poster seen above) at 8:30 pm in the CPA lobby, and Axe Lizzy making a reappearance at 10 in the Westhoff lobby.

Saturday gives the whole lineup another shot, starting with Where the Sidewalk Ends (poster at left) beginning at 2 pm (CE 115), The Improvised Musical improvising at 4 pm (CW 301), Still Ruminating ruminating at 6 pm (CW 301), Under the Influence influencing at 7:30 pm (CPA lobby), Sure Thing/Twickham revealing whodunnit at 9:30 pm (CE 115) and Axe Lizzy wielding that ax at 11 pm (Westhoff lobby).

And if you're thinking you can't afford tickets to six different shows, guess what? They're all free.

If nothing else, these plays give you the chance to see theatre happen in some cool, non-traditional spaces. Who doesn't want to see ax mayhem running around the lobby outside Westhoff Theatre or a moving piece about substance abuse put on right outside a performance of Noises Off?

That's not something you see every day.

The FreeStage projects provide an opportunity for ISU students to produce, direct, act and design in spaces on and off campus, with a special interest in experimental and original works, including works by women and minorities. FreeStage festivals are held at the end of each semester, with the same kind of flurry of activity and variety of theatrical choices you'll see this week.
