OFF BOOK THE MUSICAL: FRINGE HOLDOVER!

9:00pm - Friday, August 26th

Buy Tickets

OFF BOOK IS HELD OVER! If you can’t make it to the last weekend of shows, come see a special performance, FRIDAY, AUGUST 26 at 9PM! At the ROXY ON GATEWAY (8529 103 St NW).

A talented ensemble from Rapid Fire Theatre only needs one thing to create a brand new musical from scratch, right before your eyes: a suggestion from the audience. Witness spontaneous songs, choreography and scene work, that will never be the same twice.

OFF BOOK was created in 2012 and has had 5 sold-out runs at the Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival, and earlier this season took their show on the road to every corner of Alberta.

The morning had dawned clear and cold, with a crispness that hinted at the end of autumn. They set forth at daybreak to see the foretold improv show, where stories would soon be woven. Rapid Fire Theatre improvisers rode among them, nervous with excitement. They sought the thrill of the stage, the rush of the crowd and the performance that could possibly cost them their lives. They settled outside the Citadel Theatre cowering in its vast towers, a chill running through their bones. Sarah Mattiello, leader of the improvisers looked upon the empty theatre and whispered, “Improv is coming.”
