      The Vancouver Fringe Festival has announced it will spread its programming through the fall.

      It says it will put an emphasis on socially distanced live performance by local artists, with a mix of digital programming. Shows take place during its previously scheduled dates of September 10 to 20, but then extending to dates in October, November, and possibly December.

      "The in-person, concentrated Festival events will be held at fewer venues with limited capacity to meet the guidelines laid out in the BC Restart Plan and a safety plan will be in place and available to patrons, volunteers, and artists in advance," it announced to Fringe patrons yesterday.

      The dates for shows so far are October 1 to 10, October 29 to November 8, and possibly November 26 thru December 6, with those days and programming to be confirmed in early September.
