Get Involved with FringeArts: Conversation with Volunteer Dennis Hallda
Love the Fringe Festival and FringeArts? We’re always looking for volunteers, during the Fringe Festival and throughout the year. Usher a dance performance, collect tokens at a circus festival, or distribute programs at a play. The opportunities are endless; the art is spectacular! There is no minimum commitment and we welcome arts lovers ages 14-and-up. We spoke to longtime volunteer Dennis Hallda about his experiences.
Dennis Hallda: Twelve years. I have T-shirts from every year in every color of the rainbow. My favorite was 2013!
FringeArts: What do you like about the Fringe Festival?
Dennis Hallda: Everything. The originality, the talent, the great venues, the staff. There are so many wonderful shows and venues throughout the city … if only we could see them all.
FringeArts: What do you like about volunteering for FringeArts?
Dennis Hallda: I volunteer to keep up with what is going on at FringeArts and at the Fringe Festival. Otherwise all this creativity would pass by before I knew it was coming. Also, the staff is great to work with. I have made many friends over the years.
FringeArts: Can you share a favorite memory from a past festival?
Dennis Hallda: Pig Iron Theatre Company’s show 99 Breakups at PAFA. It was so original and creative. A show in a museum! The police showed up unexpectedly and there was a scene in a freight elevator. So cool.
