Hannah Clarke, in charge of the light brigade and a Wellington theatre stalwart since departing the world of UK-based advertising on New Years Eve 2002, has been on the office side of Fringe since 2011 and could be found in the programme as an artist for eight years leading up to the switch. Fringe is ingrained in her very being. Actress, Manager, Producer, Director, Production Manager, Radio Broadcaster, Roller Derby player, Mum... she is a woman of many talents and only one height, trust her, let her lead you in the way of the Fringe.

P (04) 831 0581
Emma has been converted to Fringe having previously spent her time working in the community development and environmental sectors - either travelling and working in countries near the equator, or in the deep west of Auckland. Organiser, fund raiser, bookworm, lover of all things tropical and celebratory, wife, and mother of two intensely gorgeous boys.
Bri thrives on working in grassroots theatre and set up her own freelance publicity business in 2004. Bri is an actor, theatre enthusiast, and proud god-mother and caffeine addict. This is her 13th NZ Fringe, that’s more than half of ALL THE NZ FRINGES and she hopes you to have a fantastic and fun Fringe experience.
Josh has been in Wellington for six years now and in that time has had a gazillion career path changes, ranging from zoo keeping to wedding planning. The only constants have been theatre and Fringe. Josh is involved in two Fringe shows this year which he assures will be as awesome as his previous Fringe musical about alien abductions and herbal drug addictions. Josh is the same age as the NZ Fringe (25, baby!) and loves growing with the festival. He also has a diva kitten called Jenna Maroney who he takes way too many photos of.
Sasha has never been in a Wellington without Fringe, which is pretty
bloody great, and is participating in her third Fringe with two shows
(!) and as the first official Fringe Ticketing Manager. She's got a
(near) monopoly of box offices in this city - if you need tickets, she
can hook you up. As well as ticketing, Sasha is really good at fashion,
dancing, and drinking wine, one day I'm sure she will make an excellent
housewife. If she's not in the caravan, you will most likely find her in
the sunshine at a bar, glass in hand.
Pragmatic, sassy, big hair and a Hamiltonian to boot, Keely is working as a versatile, freelance production manager across the capital. A sci fi nerd and serial book addict; she speaks fluent movie quotes, whale, and embarrassing puns. While only the second Fringe for this logistics extraordinaire, she’s keen to make it an awesome festival for all involved.
