The Metropolitan Library Service Agency (MELSA) brought a little fringe and flare to Stafford Library on July 22 with a Minnesota Fringe Festival kids showcase preview.
The Fringe Festival, which runs from July 30 through Aug. 9 and includes more than 160 performances, allows people who dream of writing and producing plays and performances an outlet to bring their talents to the world at various venues, in both Minneapolis and St. Paul.
During the July 22 kids showcase preview at the R.H. Stafford Library, visitors were able to see a taste of three different Fringe Festival performances. These performances included a dance number called “Seeing,” a comedic-magic show called “The Pizpor Show,” and a comedy about blissfully distracted teenagers in “Paisley Poppies.”
