What to Expect
"Campfireball presents: Monsters" is the live, traveling version of the Campfireball experience.
The show begins as any ordinary Campfireball presentation and quickly devolves into chaos when out of nowhere, we're attacked by monsters! (What are the odds?!) The audience must flee to an underground bunker where, while taking shelter from said monsters, we navigate our new reality and society together.
This live show/immersive experience hybrid is a team building, group bonding, celebratory event like no other. The outrageous premise of "surviving a monster attack" together disarms participants and through this framing device we have a chance to share personal stories from our lives, get to know each other at a deeper level and learn to trust one another. We explore our connection and humanity while having fun and without getting didactic or too, um, summer campy -- is that an adjective?
"Campfireball presents: Monsters" is the perfect event to bring to your office, party, ( or holiday party -- we have a special edition for 'that time of year'), college, high school, festival, etc, etc, etc...this show fits in any space with minimal technical requirements, is suitable for all ages and is easily customizable to fit specific event needs.
Imagine if Mr. Rogers ran an existential escape room...
What began in a backyard, has grown into a national touring production and multimedia project. Campfireball seeks to evoke connection and community through immersive, experiential events of all shapes and sizes with a unique blend of intimacy and absurdity.
Campfireball is through a live show that obliterates the line between performance and audience and infuses a story into and about the people in attendance. Breaking down our walls Campfireball gives us an opportunity to share, listen, play along, get our hands dirty, get to know our neighbor and, even after all this time, find new ways to surprise ourselves.
“If I had one wish it would be that everyone could experience Campfireball.”
-Regan Atkinson, Creative Director, Atria Senior Living
"Hosting a Campfireball made last year’s holiday party a uniquely fun experience everyone will remember for years to come. "
-Shay Hall, IBM
"Through Campfireball I saw students who never participate in class, contribute and collaborate with confidence, passion and conviction. That is the power of Campfireball." - Leonard Foust, Chesapeake STEM High School
"Campfireball has become one of the most important parts of my life in the last five years. Each time I've come out of one of those shows, I've felt invigorated and inspired. There is nothing else in this world quite like it, And there's really no adequate way to describe it. You kind of just have to be there - but I guess that's kind of the point. In today's crazy world of constant digital connection, it is incredibly refreshing to be forced into being present - into finding REAL connection with the space and people around you. It's the very best parts of theater, therapy, and friendship all in one place. I LOVE CAMPFIREBALL!!!!
-Bethany Boles-Sheslow, Campfireball Regular
