According to Ada

11-year-old reviewer Ada Grey attended the inaugural 2015 Kids Fringe and had this to say: “I think it is a cool idea to have a Fringe Festival for kids so that kids can see a festival that’s just for them that is not like some of the other kids theater out there that is more standard. This was more fun and unusual. I think even more children’s theater should be like this, where it is more than just fairy tales everybody has heard of put on by adults.”
