From the Artistic Director

theaterWe’re looking forward to a wonderful Fringe of Marin Season again.  This is the 2014-2015 season and we are off to a good start!  We broke the record last season by receiving over 80 submissions!  This season we limited the amount of plays per playwright, giving them the opportunity to submit their very best three pieces of work. This was successful. With great care and diligence our very competent reading committee narrowed them down to 12 plays for the Festival.

We discover treasures every time and this Spring is no exception.  We have a choreographed silent beautiful piece, many comedies, some sprinkles of avant-garde,  and limitless fun and entertainment!  While reading through the plays and coordinating production, it was called to my attention that it may be time to expand the scope of the Fringe.  As Scarlett says in Gone with the Wind, “We won’t think of it now, we’ll think of it later.”  However, we have enlarged our structure and found four plays to be produced in our newly founded Senior Series.  We are still hoping to have a Fringe Monologue Festival, more reader’s theater, and offer a round-table workshop for some playwrights and plays.

We have added some additional staff to the Fringe of Marin.  We welcome long-time friend of the fringe (FOF) for over 18 years and veteran actor, Rick Roitinger as Production Manager.  Throughout the process, from when the plays are chosen through rehearsal and then into performances, Rick will coordinate all of the plays and directors and actors.  Wallace Harvey, a Graduate student at Dominican has been our gem lighting technician, has recently taken on the job as temporary administrative assistant in the Performing Arts Department.  Wallace is a delight to work with and very helpful all of the time (even on the rare occasion when he cannot help).  Now that is talent!

As many Fringe followers know there are many facets to the Fringe of Marin that make it a unique theatrical in progress experience.  We rely upon the Bay Area Theater community and call upon many theater groups in Marin, Ross Valley Players, Novato Theater Company, Marin Shakespeare, and others to provide us with finding directors, actors, and talent!  We also attend regularly and work with the Playwrights Center of SF play reading groups which give us opportunity to see and hear the up and coming talent in playwriting, acting, and directing in the Bay Area.  In addition, a very unique process that the Fringe credits itself with is to have each play individually and collectively juried and selected to be winners in several categories.

 This Spring we have several new directors to the Fringe of Marin with extensive theater backgrounds.  Please check the website for information about the directors.  An open call for actors will be held the weekend of April 4-7 at Dominican University.  We are very excited and pleased about the outcome of this Spring’s Fringe and look forward to working on it.  All of this truly fulfills our original entrusted purpose Dr. Annette Lust gave us and attains our goal for the Fringe of Marin to be the innovative and cutting-edge new play works venue.  All of the plays, excluding the 12 Festival Finalists may be submitted again to other Festivals and Contests as well as re-submitted to the Fringe.

So keep your eyes on the website www/fringeofmarin.com and Facebook  www.facebook.com/FringeOfMarin .  Please come to our performances the weekends of May 23rd and 30th and our exciting Senior Series Play Festival in June.  Join us for occasions steeping with opportunity to see art, hear and original play, witness state-of-the-art theater, and discover some fine good talent in the making!
