Advance tickets and passes for the 30th annual Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival's 190 shows went on sale Monday morning.
Tickets and passes can be purchased at winnipegfringe.com and the Royal MTC box office at 174 Market Ave. Fringe programs are $5 at Manitoba Liquor Marts and the Royal MTC. The Frequent Fringer Pass, which allows spectators to see seven shows for $63 or 14 shows for $123, is also available.
Among the new aspects to the festival this year is the inaugural Winnipeg Fringe New Play Contest, where artists are invited to submit original, unproduced plays and musicals for a shot at a free spot in the 2018 fringe.
The fringe runs from July 19 to July 30 in 31 different venues in the Exchange District, downtown, The Forks and Osborne Village.
