General Manager

Sarah Barthel

Sarah is extremely proud to be a part of the legacy of Rapid Fire Theatre. Joining the organization in July 2021, Sarah jumped right into the action! Recovering from a pandemic while simultaneously managing a building renovation project is no small feat. She brings a variety of administrative and management knowledge from her experiences with organizations such as the Art Gallery of Alberta, Citadel Theatre, Grindstone Theatre, and SkirtsAfire Festival. While continuing her career within the arts industry, Sarah is compelled to support and elevate organizations, while holding them accountable for the mandate and vision they pursue on behalf of their community. Recently, Sarah received an individual project grant from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts in order to complete her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, with a major in Arts and Cultural Management, while maintaining her position with Rapid Fire Theatre.
