Aloha and Welcome to our Fringe. Today is a special day. We have reached an amazing milestone. This is our fifth year and it feels good to reach this point. With you being here it means so much as you and everyone at Fringe are making history; welcome to Fringe 5. Yay! Your support, energy, and your participation are very much part of what makes a fringe come alive. Enjoy the shows by watching, listening, applauding, hollering and yes if the urge hits you, go ahead and be adventurous and try to see all the shows at Fringe 5. Be adventurous. Be amazed. Be fringey! What is Fringe? Itall began in Scotland when a group of artists decided to do their own festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. From this. movement came the term “fringe” when a writer who witnessed this enterprising movement that sprouted around the fringes of the city of Edinburgh. In seeing this he coined the term Fringe. Now, Fringe Festivals all over the world have sprouted and continue to grow from this humble beginning; a festival that continues to grow in Hawai'i. This year we continue that growth by initiating our very first Hawaii Fringe Festival Circuit - O’ahu Fringe Festival: Jan 12-15 and Maui Fringe Theatre Festival: Jan 20 ~ 22. Yes it is a fringey time in Hawat't.
