Suzanne,

Fringe Festivals are great places to try out storytelling/theater pieces. Selection varies, most use some sort of lottery (not all) and your chances are being selected are high. You have to put out some money and do all your own marketing – but the festival also markets so you’ll be drawing from the crowd the festival brings in. Most fringes are open to all types of performance shows so folks coming to a festival to see dance or a play may discover storytelling through you. Shows get reviewed and if your quality is poor you will get negative reviews. Fringes are a great testing ground and opportunity to see how your show will play to a crowd. (Fringe performances at storytelling festivals don’t really prepare you for a fringe festival.)
