An Update from Fringe North International Theatre Festival

April 27th, 2021

Like so many organizations this past year, Fringe North has been making many changes to adapt to a constantly shifting world. We have also been going through some major internal shifts, including saying goodbye to past president Peter Rowe, long-time treasurer Connie Langille-Rowe, and secretary Jami Van Haaften. They have each played integral roles in getting Fringe North to where it stands today, and we are grateful for their commitment to our team during their time with us. Thank you.

Fringe North is starting a new chapter in 2021, and we are committed to working through this time of transition and change as a board and as a community. We are so excited to welcome back Tova Arbus as our interim president and Artistic Producer, and we are eager to overcome the challenges of the past, reconnect with the community that has welcomed us year after year, and move forward to refresh the vision of Fringe North and its possibilities. 

That said, we thank you for your patience as we continue to develop our plans for this year, which may look a lot different than previous festival years! More information regarding the 2021 season will be released as it becomes available. Keep your eyes on our social media platforms (@fringesault) and on this page!
