Fringe fest heading to attendance record

THE Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival continued its seemingly inevitable march to a new attendance record Wednesday.

Festival organizers tallied 9,481 tickets sold for Wednesday's 120 performances, including 23 sold-out shows, executive producer Chuck McEwen said Thursday.

The numbers add to Tuesday's box-office success, which had 9,284 tickets sold for 119 shows, 20 of which were sellouts. Also, three of the first four days of the festival were record-setters.

The festival wraps up Sunday night.
