The holiday season is upon us and that means it is time for Rapid Fire Theatre’s annual tradition of The Blank Who Stole Christmas! During each laughter-filled show, the beloved Christmas classic is given an improvised twist with the cast of characters not knowing who the “blank” is until the performance begins live on stage. Past characters have included everything from Shrek, the Wet Bandits, Batman, Wario, Mr.Burns, and more.
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!
You, and the rest of the Rapid Fire Theatre cast, never know who is going to show up on stage when you sit down to your performance! Our family attended one of last year’s shows and were delighted when Darth Vader appeared from the darkness as The Blank. There were non-stop laughs from both the kids and adults as we watched the improv experts come up with songs and a script on the fly, trying hard to incorporate all the classic story elements into their new mash-up tale.
Since no two shows are ever alike, you could easily enjoy multiple performances of The Blank Who Stole Christmas this Holiday Season! We recommend a fun afternoon out with the family, and a fun date night out at one of the adult-only performances.
Purchase your tickets now through the Rapid Fire Theatre website. Family-friendly performances of The Blank Who Stole Christmas run each Saturday afternoon at 1:30 pm from December 2 to 23, 2023.
