Third Auckland Fringe comes alive

Third Auckland Fringe comes alive
February 9, 2013

Set to be held from 15th February to 10th March the third Auckland Fringe will offer over 100 cabaret, burlesque, comedy, dance, music, outdoor, theatre and visual arts events.

Held every two years, and with shows generally running for just a few days or less and venues seating around 100 people, tickets during the 24 days of Fringe can generally be categorised as 'Strictly limited' and 'Will sell out'.

In the coming weeks, Auckland Fringe 2013 will feature:

Fringe in the Park, the opening event of the fringe, is set to Myers Park burst at the seams with activities for the whole family, refreshments, lost islands and scores of fringe acts sharing their spoils;
Après Ski is Auckland Fringe's late night variety show;
The Pineapple Jukebox Dance Show - an interactive dance show on for four evenings at the Q Theatre.

Other performances will include:
