Milwaukee Fringe Festival Turns 4

The fourth annual Milwaukee Fringe Festival, running this Saturday and Sunday, will feature more than 25 performances. The diverse lineup of performances — theatre, art, music, and dance — will take place at the Todd Wehr Theatre, the Peck Pavilion, and Vogel Hall.

Local artists Dasha Kelly and Chad Piechocki are both taking part this year.

Kelly, who is is a writer and storyteller, says experiencing a fringe festival elsewhere encouraged her to participate in Milwaukee’s. "To see these performers from across the country and they’re standing on stilts and they’re pretending to be polar bears and they’re using bananas to tell their stories in theatre — all of this counted," she explains.
