Wild Fire by Denver Center for the Performing Arts
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.
Performing just one night each at three gorgeous outdoor venues in Denver, Dillon, & Winter Park!
Tickets start at $30 for all performances, and 8% of each ticket sold will benefit the Grand Foundation’s Grand County Wildfire Emergency Fund.
