A Festival Highlighting West Michigan Theatre

Mar 13, 2014

Second Annual Lake Effect Fringe Festival

The Second Annual Lake Effect Fringe Festival took place from January 30-March 2, 2014.  This year's festival featured performances by M.Y. Musical World, Lucas Brooks, GEM Theatrics, Stark Turn Players, Southside Theater Company, Alea Iacta Est, Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival, the Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company, and No Outlet Improv.  All of these groups are based in or originally from West Michigan, and they did an outstanding job of giving our regional audiences an opportunity to see a wide variety of theatrical performance by local artists.  The festival included musicals, original works by local playwrights, innovative productions of classical works, and exciting improvisational performances.

This year's festival received some outstanding media coverage from MLive, On-the-Town, WGVU Radio, Rapid Growth Media, Encore Michigan, and Broadway World Detroit.  The cooperation between West Michigan theatre groups to promote and support each other's work was wonderful.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported this project on GlobalGiving.  Any donations that come in after March 2 will go towards the planning for next year's festival!
