Erica Fee to Address Graduates

Erica Fee ’99 is founding producer and board president of the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival, downtown Rochester’s annual multidisciplinary arts festival, one of the most popular Fringe festivals in the United States.

Fee, a Rochester native, ran her own London-based theatrical production and general management company, which focused on new work and major revivals. Her credits include the film-based improv show Totally Looped, the comedy ˆ, and London’s original, multidisciplinary Scratch Sundays.
At the University, Fee was a Xerox Scholar and a member of Phi Beta Kappa. She graduated magna cum laude with a BA in political science and history and a minor in theater.

Fee received classical acting training from the Arts Educational Schools London, where she received her master’s degree. She has since studied the production, economic impact, and marketing of festivals at the University of Minnesota and speaks frequently on the new arts festival revolution, festival production, and the Rochester Fringe.

A classically trained actress, Fee’s performance credits include the comedy I Am Star Trek!, the revival of Unidentified Remains and the True Nature of Love, plus commercials, ad campaigns, and short films.
