Spring Fundraiser

GemmaWilcoxThe 2015 Regina International Fringe Festival goes July 8-12. The line-up of local, national and international acts has already been nailed down, and you can find performer info on the RIFF website.

Before all that happens, though, the RIFF is holding a fundraiser to help prepare for the main festival this summer. It will happen on Saturday April 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Artesian.

Kicking off the evening will be local singer-songwriter Roberta Nichol. After her set, UK theatre artist Gemma Wilcox (pictured) will present a remount of her show “The Honeymoon Period Is Officially Over”. Wilcox was one of the top draws at the 2014 RIFF, and plans on returning to Regina for the 2015 festival.

Here’s a brief synopsis of the “The Honeymoon Period Is Officially Over”

Wilcox embodies 20 characters as she unfolds the journey of Sandra & her world of complex relationships. Transforming seamlessly from male to female, from feline to mysterious fowl, this humorous & poignant tale of love & letting-go is a must see!

Again, the RIFF fundraiser goes Saturday at the Artesian at 7:30 p.m.
