Kamehameha Schools — Hawai’i (Kea’au campus) students will be traveling to Scotland in August of 2016 as participants of the 2016 American High School Theatre Festival at Edinburgh Festival Fringe simple known as The Fringe. They have chosen “Ka Lei Hāweoʻula O Ke Ao Hou,” meaning the lei of the new beginnings of the new realm, as the theme representing the pioneering nature of the performance. The Ultimate Fundraiser is excited that Hawai’i will be represented at The Fringe!
The Fringe will feature over 4,000 shows featuring over 42,000 performers from all over the world. Each year, the festival attracts about a million visitors. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world and takes place every August in Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city. Thousands of performers take to hundreds of stages all over Edinburgh presenting shows for every taste. From big names to unknown artists, the festival caters to everyone and includes “theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, circus, cabaret, children’s shows, musicals, opera, music, spoken word, exhibitions and events.” “In 2015 there were 50,459 performances of 3,314 shows in 313 venues, making it the largest ever arts festival in the world.” (edfringe.com)
The Fringe story is interesting, it started with performers rejected at the then newly formed Edinburgh International Festival going ahead and performing on the fringes of the festival! And from there it has grown into what it is today. Hope Hawai’i being represented at The Fringe will be a continuing trend and we hope to be there to support them at The Fringe sometime in the near future:).
