Snap your fingers, and before you know it the award-winning Capital Fringe Festival will return to Downtown for 18 full days from July 12 through July 29. But first, the independent performing arts festival well-known for its original performances—from one-act plays, comedies, dramas and improvisation to musicals, dance, hip-hop and mime—is accepting applications from interested artists. Got talent? An itch to perform? The application deadline is January 6. Remember: Over the past year, Fringe welcomed more than 23,000 patrons, who purchased 42,000 tickets to the 2011 Fringe Festival, Wattage—the Festival’s annual new play series—and fallFRINGE, which included the best of the 2011 Festival and live local music.
