Fresher, a new pop/rock musical that took Edinburgh by storm is being presented this summer at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival.
This winner of Best New Musical at the MTM:UK Awards, follows five freshmen students as they embark on their first year of university. Awkward drinking games, convoluted love triangles and raging hormones await the students as they negotiate the minefield of first impressions at school.
This amazing new score with witty humour and an incredible young triple-threat cast make this musical a charmer for anyone who is in university or anyone who went to university. A story that both resonates and entertains.
