If you’re heading to Edmonton in the next week, you may find yourself part of North America’s oldest Fringe Theatre Festival. Over 500,000 people will watch over 100 live shows, and one Fort St. John resident is in the middle of it.
Chalene Scott, a local actress and member of the Flesh Theatre company, is currently performing , Box, or the Incredible Impact of the Totally Made Up, and will be four more times over the next week. The show, completely created by Scott and her cast mates, is a wild adventure with heartfelt moments.
