The NEW ORLEANS FAMILY FRINGE 2013 promises to be bigger and better than ever!  This year we are introducing 'MAKERLAND'!    We have invited several "makers" from all over the City to do hands on demonstrations of their inventions, tinker toys, etc. We are super excited to announce the collaboration with the New Orleans Airlift, who will present a Kid friendly Musical Maker Land as well as robot makers and other cool kid-friendly inventions. Good Eggs will be joining maker land with macaroni art, lemonade demonstration (including samples!) and pumpkin art! This year Family Fringe is excited to bring community artist Dixon Stetler to host a ‘Weaving Bee’ at the Marigny Opera House. Similar to a `sewing circle', a Weaving Bee, is a gathering of people who come together to create with many hands.  Participants of all ages will work on a collaborative fence weaving reusing discarded Mardi Gras beads.
Sneak peek performances from some of the Fringe "family-friendly" shows, and featured guests, such local storyteller, Adella Adella The Story Teller, a dance workshop by Choreographer, Jarrell Hamilton and a Kid's Improv workshop with local Actress, Kerry Cahill ('Now You See Me', 'Snitch'), just to name a few, will grace our Family Fringe Stage.  And we are super excited to announce that once again, this year’s Family Fringe Kid's Open Mic event will be hosted by our very own Deborah Evans, President of Della Music Publishing.
