Wild Fire: A theatrical concert inspired by real Colorado stories

August 16

Join a cast of performers as they share powerful real-life stories from 2020’s East Troublesome Fire and songs written by folk artists Cary Morin, Chimney Choir, Daniel Rodriguez, Elephant Revival, Gregory Alan Isakov and SHEL.

A one-of-a-kind event celebrating the astounding generosity and resilience of our Colorado community.
Join an 8-person cast of performers as they share powerful real-life stories from 2020’s East Troublesome Fire and songs written by some of Colorado’s best folk artists: Cary Morin, Chimney Choir, Daniel Rodriguez, Elephant Revival, Gregory Alan Isakov, and SHEL (bands listed in alphabetical order).
Wild Fire follows the lives of 8 people in Grand County over the course of one momentous week as they face the threat of an unprecedented wildfire. A local fire marshal, a park ranger, a reporter, a rancher, and other evacuated residents…these are a few of the lives that are crossed, changed, and ultimately interwoven forever.
Featuring a folk score written by Colorado musicians, crafted by a Colorado playwright, and inspired by real testimony from more than 30 oral history interviews, Wild Fire honors real stories from our neighbors and friends — with urgent relevance to events happening across the country.
