Openings for the weekend of 8/17

So, the Indy Fringe Festival will dominate the theater scene for the next two weeks. There are 78 shows spread over eight stages, so I’m not going to list them here. Go check out the schedule. I am planning to attend at least 13 of these — more if time and stamina permit. I’m a one-woman writing machine, so bear with me.

There are, however, a couple alternatives to Fringe.

Garfield Shakespeare Company: The Three Musketeers

Footlite Musicals Young Artists: The Pirates of Penzance

A fresh take on one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular comic operas, this show is a hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, and an eccentric Major-General.
