Event website

This light hearted and entertaining event takes Maine performance artists and assigns them each one section of a classic work to be combined at the last minute.The result is a creative, hilarious and oftentimes debaucherous rendition of some familiar classics. This year,
artists will create short filmed scenes that will premiere for the first time in front of a live Geno’s audience. Join us Friday evening for special live surprises or Saturday evening for a screening and artist Q&A.

Pop-up Pirates of Penzance is a fundraising event supporting Portfringe – Maine’s Fringe Festival – a multi-day performance art showcase celebrating creative expression, artistic activism, cultural connections, and community building. The 10th PortFringe Festival will take place in Portland’s East Bayside neighborhood from June 13-18, 2022.
