You know the story, you know the rhymes. You’ve seen the tale a million times. But here’s the twist that no one will know… there’s a different villain in every show!
The Blank is back! Rapid Fire Theatre’s annual holiday tradition returns to the stage in December 2022. THE BLANK WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS is a somewhat-familiar but always original improvised take on the holiday classic by a similar name.
In this original Christmas musical, a cast of performers have memorized all their lines and rehearsed all their choreography, just to have it all ruined at a moment’s notice. In each performance of THE BLANK the main character is played by a different guest improviser playing a character of their choice. The main character hasn’t rehearsed with the rest of the cast and doesn’t know any of their lines. The cast doesn’t know who is crashing their performance until the moment it happens live on stage!
Saturday matinee performances are family-friendly, and night-time shows might not be.
A holiday tradition to call their own, pure Rapid Fire, a full-length tribute to the rarefied skills of the company’s deluxe improvisers.
