Tickets & Passes

The Visa Button ($5): Your Festival Membership

Since 100% of the ticket price you pay goes directly to the performers, the Visa Button helps Intrepid Theatre cover the cost of producing the festival. A Visa Button is REQUIRED for each ticket holder. Buy a button at the door of any Fringe venue, or at the Fringe Ticket Kiosk. Don't lose it, or you'll have to buy another! Kids 12 and under don't need Visa Buttons.

Your button comes with a “Pick of the Fringe” Ballot – when you’ve seen all you can see, fill it out and drop it off at any Fringe Venue by 10 pm Friday, August 31, and you’ll be entered to win a VIP Pass to the 2008 Fringe or Uno Festival. Winners will be announced on Saturday, September 2. See your ballot for more details.


Fringe Visa Buttons are 2-for-$5 if you purchase them at the free Fringe Kick-Off Concert at Centennial Square on Tuesday, August 21, or with your ticket purchase at the door of any show on August 23.
