This weekend the Fridge is happy to bring two great performance events to our space this weekend. First up, Friday evening, May 23rd, is an all-new installment of OpenStage, where local playwrights and actors band together to give you a night of short plays and performances. On Saturday, May 24th, Word Beats & Life teams up with the Fridge to bring you “Fire”, our first spoken word collaboration. Fire is open to poets, emcees, storytellers and anyone who has their own fire to share.
