Welcome to Rapid Fire Theatre! We are conveniently located downtown in the beautiful Citadel Theatre.
Once you have your tickets, here’s what you can expect and some tips to ensure you have the best experience possible.
Getting to Rapid Fire Theatre
Most of our shows and festivals take place in the cozy Zeidler Hall in the Citadel Theatre. The Citadel is located in downtown Edmonton at 9828 101 A Avenue. There are plenty of ways to get here.
Edmonton’s LRT system is a great option if you’re looking to avoid driving/parking downtown. Just hop on the train and get off at Churchill Station, which is located directly beneath the Citadel Theatre.
There are a lot of major bus routes that will take you to Sir Winston Churchill Square. Plan your trip using the ETS Trip Planner.
If driving is your style, there is a ton of convenient parking options available. The best one is the Stanley A. Milner Library Parkade, which is located directly beneath the Citadel Theatre. There are entrances on 99 Street and Rice Howard Way.
Other parking options include:
City Hall Parkade
1 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Entrance on 99 Street
Canada Place Parkade
9700 Jasper Avenue
City Market Surface Lot
10165 97 Street
Street Level Parking
Street level parking rates may vary based on the events happening downtown. Please see the street EPark machines for rates.
Check out this handy parking map.
Improv should be accessible and welcoming to everybody. That’s why we strive to ensure that Rapid Fire Theatre is a safe space for our audience, volunteers, staff and players. You can read our anti-harassment policy here.
Our theatre is accessible for audience members who use wheelchairs. Please inform our Box Office of your specific needs when booking your tickets, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request. If you are driving to the Citadel and parking in the underground parkade beneath the building, park in P2 North for access to the elevator.
Once you’ve arrived at the Citadel, it’s time to get you to your seat for some laughs.
Most of our shows are located in Zeidler Hall on the main floor of the Citadel. Sometimes we use other theatres in the building so check out the Citadel’s site map to make sure you’re going to the right place.
Your first stop is going to be our box office. There will be two lines. One for people who have purchased advanced tickets, and one for folks who still need to buy tickets. Whichever category you fall into, please arrive at the theatre at least half an hour before the start of the show.
Once you present or buy your tickets, our volunteers will be happy to point you to the concession or help you to your seats. You are allowed to eat and drink concession items in the theatre.
If you need an ATM, there are two on the main floor of the Citadel. One beside Second Cup in the Lee Pavillion (jungle atrium) and another near the elevators beside the south entrance of the building.
The doors to the theatre will open 10 minutes before the show starts. Once the show starts, the doors will close. If you leave the theatre during the performance you might not be able to get back inside until intermission.
Our improvisers feed off the energy of the audience. That means our shows will be even funnier the closer you sit to the stage. Don’t worry, we don’t bite!
If the theatre is full, don’t worry, our volunteers will be happy to help you find a seat. If you have any special seating requirements just let us know.
