The Tucson Fringe Festival is an unjuried, uncensored performing arts festival. Following international fringe tenets, the festival provides artists with low-risk, low-cost opportunities to perform by using economies of scale to reduce venue rental costs and by taking 0% of the artist’s earnings. Additionally, the festival also provides the Tucson arts community with avant-garde, non-traditional performing arts at very low ticket prices. Finally, the festival does not curate or select the performances, maintaining an environment in which everyone and anyone can perform. This ensures that underrepresented artistic voices are championed in our community.
What haunts you? Lost loves and lives; visitors from beyond the grave or beyond memory; secrets lost and revealed. Join storyteller Laura Packer for eerie, funny, lovely, uncanny tales of memories best left forgotten, fiction that might be fact, and fact that we wish were fiction. Hear stories that ring true and make you wonder what’s behind you. Not just ghost stories but the things that linger and keep us awake at night. Stories you won’t hear around the campfire, stories you wish weren’t real, stories that will haunt you.
Master storyteller Laura Packer has been obsessed by uncanny stories her whole life. From the first horror movie she remembers to the real events that have become some of her most chilling tales, Laura understands that stories shape who we are and how we see the world. Sometimes that vision is haunting.
Laura knows the best way to the truth is through a good story and has won many awards for her work, including Best in Fringe in multiple Fringe Festivals. She performs, teaches, coaches, and gives keynotes internationally, and is the author of From Audience to Zeal: The ABCs of Finding, Crafting, and Telling a Great Story. All her stories, whether scary or funny or poignant, intrigue, ensnare and linger. Come. Be haunted.
