Vancouver Fringe Wrap-Up

Sold Out webCelebrating our first sold out show. This photo is notable for featuring our stage manager, the elusive Ann Chow, whose images are rarer than those of the Sasquatch.

Our Fringe run is now officially over and what a way to end it with the final shows being completely sold out!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the wonderful people who helped us, beginning with the Vancouver Fringe Festival staff and 600 volunteers who make the festival run if not like exactly like clockwork than like a reasonably priced and waterproof digital watch. We would also like to thank the fabulous Fringe Artists that we got to meet or see perform. Truly the Fringe is one of the few opportunities to celebrate independent theatre in Vancouver and we have been blessed to perform here three times so far. Thank you to Studio 16 for being such gracious hosts; we’d love to play here again someday and in the meantime maybe check out the restaurant.

We would like to thank the fabulous Assaulted Fish team; thank you to our unflappable and resourceful Stage Manager Ann Chow and our cheerful and conscientious technician Katja Schleuter who made sure our show was running smoothly every single night, thereby reducing our stress level exponentially. Thank you too to our incredibly talented director Laura McLean who finally had the opportunity to strut her stuff with this show earning rightful mention in the Vancouver Province review. Big thanks to Linda Ong Chan, our intrepid publicist who stood in the lobby and welcomed fans and sold t-shirts every night and also pulled off the astonishing coup of getting us profiled in the Globe and Mail. We’d also like to thank our official sponsors, Raz Chan Fitness and Schema Magazine.

Finally, a heartfelt thanks to you our fans both old and new who came to see the show, including some who made the trip from another country (the US is still officially another country, as far as we know). You are the wings that make these stupid angels fly, make the astronauts orbit weightless and make us feel sexy on a budget (and several other equally forced and mixed metaphors). Thank you for helping us celebrate our 10th anniversary in style. Hope to see you all really soon! Be good!

Diana, Marlene, Kuan and Chris

P.S., does anyone want a watermelon (slightly rolled)?
