A day in the life of the Victoria Fringe Guest Producer

By Katt Campbell

My workday begins with a bike ride to the office in the morning. It’s usually sunny, and I like the feeling of biking mixed with the excited anticipation of unopened emails in my inbox. Normally having a bursting-at-the-seams inbox would be stressful, but for me it means correspondence from Fringe artists, staff, volunteers, and patrons – the people who make our work possible.

There is a lot of learning involved in the Guest Producer position. Although I come from a Stage Management background, and have volunteered and worked for the Fringe in other roles, this is my first time coordinating such a large event, with so many people involved. This year we have over 250 volunteers, 53 companies, and are expecting over 25,000 audience members – that’s a lot to organize! I check in daily with team members from various departments – volunteer coordination, billeting, marketing, and production, and we have to communicate all the time to make sure the Fringe machine runs smoothly.

Working downtown has definite perks, we take breaks and journey down the street to grab a coffee and the occasional Empire doughnut from 2% Jazz Coffee or venture down to Fan Tan Alley for Kid Sister

One of the events we are creating for our 30th Anniversary is the Fringe Jamboree, happening on Aug. 22 in Market Square. As a member of the Girl Guides of Canada for 12 years, I love all things camp, so we decided to throw a huge summer camp party right in the middle of downtown. All Victorians can come roast marshmallows and sing campfire songs together, without having to leave the city at all! Dreaming up fun ideas like a s’mores building station and a canoe photobooth have made the days here at the Fringe so much fun, and I can’t wait to see everyone decked out in neckerchiefs and having a great time at the Jamboree.

We want audiences at the Fringe to experience everything the festival has to offer, so we have created the Fringe Passport where they can collect stamps for completing “merit badges” and enter to win a pass for next year’s Fringe. This limited-edition document encourages Fringe-goers to not only see lots of shows, but also to take in the special events, to bring a friend and introduce them to the Fringe, and to share their festival experience on social media.

It’s been my honour to help present the 30th annual Victoria Fringe Festival, and I’ve been so lucky to have the chance to share my love for all things Fringe (and camp!) with Victoria. Enjoy Camp Fringe in beautiful Downtown Victoria and see you at the theatre!
