Rapid Fire Theatre to Present 2022 BONFIRE FESTIVAL

Rapid Fire Theatre will present their 2022 BONFIRE FESTIVAL on May 12-14! BONFIRE is their annual blast of new improv ideas. Each show in the festival is created by one of RFT's own and features members of the RFT ensemble. These all-new, never been attempted before ideas are wacky, weird and wild. They might work, they might not, but either way, it'll be a treat to witness.


"BONFIRE Festival is one of the most exciting times of the year at RFT," says Artistic Director Matt Schuurman. "It's where our ensemble presents their newest and most innovative improv concepts. This is also an exciting time for our audiences as the shows you see at BONFIRE might be the next big thing at RFT."

"The 2020 BONFIRE festival was one of our first live events cancelled due to the pandemic, and this is our first live BONFIRE since. We've had two years of pent-up ideas and excitement to get to this point - we can't wait to share it with you!"


Some of RFT's most beloved features, including Magic Marv XXS, Improbotics, Folk Lordz, and more got their starts at this festival.

The BONFIRE FESTIVAL runs from May 12-14. All performances are Pay-What-You-Can, tickets can be booked in advance at rapidfiretheatre.com.
