Passing of former VP of the Hamilton Fringe- Robin Pittis

We are deeply saddened to hear of Robin Pittis' sudden passing. Robin worked with the Hamilton Fringe for years, was former VP of the Fringe board, and reviewed theatre for VIEW Magazine. He left an indelible mark on the Hamilton theatre scene. Our thoughts are with his family.
Those wishing to share in the celebration of Robin's life are invited to attend a memorial at the Pearl Company on Sunday, May 15 at 2pm.
