It's showtime!

Well, I did it. I'm on my way to the Hollywood Fringe Fest.
You're thinking, "woohoo Jenn, that's great! What's Fringe?"

According to their website:
The Hollywood Fringe Festival is an annual, open-access, community-derived event celebrating freedom of expression and collaboration in the performing arts community. Each June during the Hollywood Fringe, the arts infiltrate the Hollywood neighborhood: fully equipped theaters, parks, clubs, churches, restaurants and other unexpected places host hundreds of productions by local, national, and international arts companies and independent performers. Participation in the Hollywood Fringe is completely open and uncensored. This free-for-all approach underlines the festival’s mission to be a platform for artists without the barrier of a curative body. By opening the gates to anyone with a vision, the festival is able to exhibit the most diverse and cutting-edge points-of-view the world has to offer. Additionally, by creating an environment where artists must self-produce their work, the Fringe motivates its participants to cultivate a spirit of entrepreneurialism in the arts.

I'm participating as part of the group from Native Voices at the Autry.  This is our first foray out away from our home away from home at The Autry in Griffith Park.  We are venturing out to the wilds of Hollywood and presenting a total of 3 shows, with 10 performances.  

Here's a quick image I made.  I just really wanted to use the picture of me in my Ronald McDonald's dress and headdress.
