Inclusion

Rapid Fire Theatre honours the place that we call home; Treaty Six territory and the original home of Indigenous nations, including the Cree, Nakota-Sioux, Blackfoot, Dene, and Métis.

We celebrate this place, where people have been telling stories and making each other laugh for thousands of years. We honour the spirit of respect, collaboration and sharing that created this treaty and in doing so, we celebrate the spirit of Tatawaw; that there is room here for all.

We strive to uphold these values in all that we do, for we are all Treaty people, making it up as we go, together.

Rapid Fire Theatre strives to reflect the diversity of our community on our stages, in our classrooms, in our staff and on our board.

We believe that diversity is strength.

Rapid Fire Theatre is a member of the Edmonton Performing Arts Accessibility Ad Hoc Group, a group dedicated to make performances accessible to as many people as possible.

Rapid Fire Theatre is an active participant in ALL IN Alberta, a BIPOC led equity and diversity training program for established theatre companies, provided by the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres, Ad Hoc Assembly, and Theatre Alberta.

Auditions

We conduct open auditions for our rookie ensemble once each season (usually in May). Our auditions are conducted in groups; usually around 12-16 people per session. Our panel of auditioners is comprised of individuals of different genders and race. If you request an audition, you’ll get an audition! Please contact our Artistic Director if you’d like to schedule one.

Want to try improv for free?

Most Fridays we host free improv jams at our theatre before our evening of shows. This is a fun way to try improv for the first time, further hone your skills, or just get in some quality time with the performers from RFT! Check out the schedule and register online to claim your spot. All are welcome.
