FRANKIE Award Nominations for the 28th St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival

And the Award goes to…Find out June 17th!

June 14, Montreal – The St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival will be closing with a bang on June 17 with the annual FRANKIE Award Ceremony taking place at the stunning Club Soda (1225 St Laurent Boulevard) starting at 11pm. Participating juries and festival staff are pleased to announce the nominated shows and performance companies. This year there will be 11 prizes awarded, covering an array of values.

The Frankie Awards are named after Frank Hopkins, a key benefactor during the festival’s early years of the festival. Frank Hopkins passed away on November 11, 2015, his 93rd birthday. As Frank always did, the awards in his name shine a light of the stand-out productions of each edition.
