Around the Campfire

Great tales with great mates

This Anywhere Theatre Festival, leave the city behind and join Big Fork Theatre down by the campfire for a night of laughter, mayhem, mateship and marshmallows.

We’re very proud to present our new show, Around the Campfire – a fully improvised comedy inspired by the great Aussie tradition of swapping stories around the campfire.

There’s nothing we like more at Big Fork Theatre than sharing stories, and Around the Campfire takes that to the next level by using the medium of the campfire story to inspire our actors to produce spontaneous theatre before your very eyes.

Every performance of Around the Campfire will be unique and suitable for all ages. Audiences are encouraged to bring along their own picnic food and drinks to complete the experience

Presented with the generous support of Tarragindi Scouts.

  1. A Night Of Hilarity Under The Stars

    OFFICIAL ANYWHERE THEATRE FESTIVAL REVIEW
    Around The Campfire, 21 May

    A night of storytelling under the stars is always lovely, but when done by Big Fork Theatre it becomes odd and delightful.

    Around The Campfire sees the group take their cult improvised comedy show Cool Story, Bro outdoors to a campground, and possibly being the only show to really push the ‘anywhere but a theatre’ condition of the festival.

    The format would begin with cast members sitting around the campfire, talking about personal experiences. From there, the cast took inspiration from those stories to develop hilarious improvised scenes. The stories inspired scenes about trolley boys becoming embroiled in the criminal underworld, a tour group inside a building made of human bones, and an especially hilarious scene showing the mayhem of a airline operated entirely by dogs.

    It takes a lot of skill to be funny, and the fact the cast of Around The Campfire are creating such funny stories off the tops of their heads is remarkable. Big Fork Theatre are a gift to Brisbane comedy. Any show they are involved in is not to be missed.
