A hilarious new holiday tradition!
In 2019 Rapid Fire Theatre created the somewhat-familiar but always original THE BLANK WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS; an improvised take on a holiday classic!
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 cast doesn’t know who is crashing their performance until the moment it happens!
In 2019, packed audiences got to witness the catchy tunes and hilarious chaos of this half-scripted, half-improvised adventure. Swipe through the gallery below to see who the inaugural “Blanks” were, and stay tuned for the return in 2020!
A holiday tradition to call their own, pure Rapid Fire, a full-length tribute to the rarefied skills of the company’s deluxe improvisers.
