Featuring an outstanding cast of professional Vancouver actors and musicians, as well as birds, boats, bikes, and over 100 volunteer performers, Other Freds is the story of a lonely fella living in Vancouver, and all the Other Freds existing in nearby parallel universes. The Freds make slightly different choices and end up on wildly differing adventures in the urban landscape. A desperate act leads to an all-Fred rescue party reuniting Fred with the parade of life that awaits him on the shore. Other Freds is set on Granville Island, the False Creek waterway, the downtown seawall, and in all of the ‘Other Vancouvers’ that hover out there on the edge of possibility.

“A laugh-out-loud, only-in-Vancouver experience to be savoured by all who step with it….words can’t do justice to this upbeat carnival about the limitless possibilities of life. This is one more feather in the cap for Fanconi, and another big boost for our city’s crazy creativity.” (Vancouver Sun, Peter Birnie)
“Absolutely exhilarating….a crescendo of comic brilliance….a huge musical celebration that has all the stars in all the universes aligned in glorious harmony.” (The Province, Jerry Wasserman)
