Charm City Fringe will present its fifth Nights on the Fringe with two shows of vaudeville-inspired acts June 8 and 9 at 8 p.m. at the Baltimore Theatre Project.
Friday's show features a 10-act lineup that includes ballet, theater, puppetry, film and crankies. Saturday's show features dance, magic, circus performers, and more. Based on the idea of presenting a modern vaudeville experience, both nights will feature buskers, special guest appearances and a house band. Hosted by Aaron Henkin (WYPR, Out of the Blocks) and Umar Khan (Gin & Jokes, Super Comedy).
The event will also include gallery work curated by The Black Genius Art Show and walkabout performances from Jim Dandy and Valeska Pupoloh. Charm City Fringe is also hosting an auction of custom-designed block print tote bags filled with gift cards, theater tickets and more.
Tickets are $20 for one night and $35 for both, available online or at the door. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., with pre-show buskers and house-band outside entertainment. For more information, visit www.charmcityfringe.com.
The seventh annual Charm City Fringe Festival is November 1-11, 2018 in the Bromo Arts District, and is supported by the Bromo Arts District and the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore. Charm City Fringe was founded in 2012 by Zachary Michel and Michael Brush to celebrate and grow Baltimore's independent theater community.
