Provide students at Inspire School of Arts and Sciences the opportunity to explore and deepen their theatrical passions and talents by attending and performing at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The reason for engaging these activities is to raise money for the following charitable purpose: funds will be given to the American High School Theatre Festival, who produces student work at the Fringe Festival, and who arrange all travel accommodations. Students will also participate in acting workshops at the Globe Theatre in London, England.
What is the Edinburgh Fringe Festival? In 1947, the Edinburgh International Festival was formed as an event to promote peace and unity in the world after World War II. Eight uninvited theatre companies traveled to the Festival and participated on its ‘fringes’. These companies attracted so much attention and enthusiasm that a new festival was born, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe! Today, with nearly 3,000 productions, 40,000 performances and thousands of performers from across the globe, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest performance arts festival in the world!
