Taking it to the Streets

What: The Newcastle Fringe Festival

FROM streets to forlorn shopfronts, empty buildings to playhouses, few corners will remain untouched by live performance this week at the 1998 Newcastle Fringe Festival.

One of the most exciting aspects of the festival is live performance in every available space across the city from today to October 1.

Organisers have attempted to put performance in places for viewing by people who may not normally attend such happenings.

The Theatre and Street Program includes;

ANIMAL FARM (pictured) - 30 YOUNG PEOPLE'S THEATRE senior students animate GEORGE ORWELL'S classic political satire adapted by BELINDA ROAL at the ROXY THEATRE.

BENT and AFTERWARDS - BENT, a gay love story set in pre-war Nazi Germany, is performed at the CIVIC PLAYHOUSE by the CHAMELEON THEATRE COMPANY.

For programs contact participating venues or the Fringe Office, Newcastle Community Arts Centre, 246 Parry St, Newcastle West, or Daniel Hill on 4927 6427, or online at http://www.fringe.org.au/Newcastle98
