We’re pleased to offer three new surprise shows to our Fringe Festival line-up: A musical children’s show by Doug Waterman, a night of stories from our own Steve Huff, and an interactive 3D projection light show on the back of our building. Take a look at the information below. Tickets at rochesterfringe.com or in person at Writers & Books.
Mermaid Writing Prompts
This show is a projection of images and sound onto the Writers & Books’ building. Feel free to bring a lawn chair. Writers of all genres and skill levels will be presented with a number of short writing prompts that will help them create poems and stories about mermaids. Viewers are encouraged to bring a pad and a writing utensil. A lively imagination is also highly encouraged.
Show Length: 45 minutes Ticket Price: Free Genre: Visual Art
Ages: All Ages Show Dates: 8:00 pm Saturday, Sept. 21
Music Fun with Mister Doug
Doug Waterman’s songs for families will have you and your young children howling, swimming, flying, dancing and laughing. Come ready to move! Doug’s show “Fun With Fairytales” was a hit at Writers & Books during last year’s Fringe Festival. Doug Waterman has been sharing music with children for over ten years and his CD of children’s songs, Truly Hairy Fairy Tales, topped a 2006 local listeners’ poll.

It Just So Happened: An Intimate Evening with Steve Huff

A freak show disperses when a circus goes bankrupt. An exotic princess forces a pilot at gunpoint to disrobe and throw his clothes out into the sky.
