New one-day record

Powered by a new one-day attendance

record of 8,240 on Saturday,

the fringe festival has seen ticket

sales jump 11 per cent, as compared

to a year ago.

A day after cracking the 8,000

ticket mark for the first time in its

22 year history, box office at the 12-

day event wracked up another 7,403

in sales Sunday.

After five days, ticket sales stand

at 31,029, as compared to 28,004

in 2008. The box office take for

performers

stands at $187,276 ($177,729 last

year). There have been 44 sell-outs,

the same number as last year.

Overall, executive producer

Chuck McEwen described the turnout

for the first five days as "pretty

incredible."

Not-so-secret cabaret

The not-so-secret fringe performer

cabaret is set for The King's Head

Pub at midnight Wednesday.

The current show title, which is a

tip off of which artists are involved,

is Take Archy Bluetooth's seven

magic moving lastnuts, After Jake

Liliput's 52 sorry little fruitpips

and accidentally murder Lavignia

Orwell's grim fallflop jabberanza,

again.

Tickets are $10 and go on sale

10:30 p.m. Wednesday. The proceeds

go to volunteers, to the jenny review

and to a local charity.

Show must go on

Plucky actor Caley Suliak demonstrated

severe show-must-go-on

spirit at her opening performance of

Spiral Dive II.

Edmontonian Suliak was so sick

immediately before the show, she

suffered a bout of vomiting in the

MTC Warehouse lobby.

"Right in that trash can over

there," she said, pointing to a bin

near the lobby concession.

Suliak, 22, had ulcerative colitis

five years ago, and had to have her

colon removed. She spent three

hours in Urgent Care at Misericordia

Health Centre.

"I think I got out like two and a

half hours before our show."

Co-stars Blake William Turner

and Bryan D. Webb told her she

didn't have to perform, but Suliak

says she did it for her own peace

of mind as well as for their sake.

And adrenaline, and meds, got her

through.

"I got into costume, chewed some

gum and off we went."
