Red QueenUWindsor alumnae are helping to bring an original musical to the Windsor-Walkerville Fringe Festival stage.

UWindsor students and grads to get in the spirit of the Fringe

The Windsor-Walkerville Fringe Festival, scheduled from July 19 to July 29 at the Olde Walkerville Theatre, 1564 Wyandotte Street East, will once again feature the talents of UWindsor students, grads, and friends.

RED: The Untold Story of the Queen of Hearts, produced by School of Music graduate Erin Armstrong and her company, Abridged Opera, will be featured at this year’s festival and stars drama in education student Kaitlyn Karns as Alice, and BFA graduate Kristen Siapas as the Queen of Hearts.

The Fringe promotes cutting-edge, new work — locally, nationally or internationally derived — and gives artists free rein to develop their skills. This year’s festival features 46 performances of eight productions over a 10-day period, including stand-up comedy, a magic show, dance and theatre. All ticket sales benefit participating artists.

Volunteers for this year’s event are still needed and recruits are asked to contact Deborah Cottreau at
