Catching Fire: The Musical is pop culture parody sequel of Suzanne Collins action-packed novel and feature film. Along with skewering the plot, character and themes from the original story, the musical is packed with upbeat mainstream pop songs with new creative lyrics. We have assembled almost the entire cast back for another go around. Hunger Games: The Musical was a huge success at Vancouver’s

Fringe Festival in 2015; it had consistently sold-out shows and was one of the hottest tickets in town.

Here are some of the reviews from last year’s production:

“The puns, barbs and self-referential jokes come so quickly, you might want to see it a second time.

Four out of five stars” Shawn Conner | Vancouver Sun

“Hunger Games fans will love the District 13 Presents parody and those that found the movies vapid will love it even more.” Vancouver Presents!

“This troupe can sing and move, and when they all sang and moved together they produced a great harmonious sound and presence! The fun was palpable, even for a geezer like me.” Keith Wilkinson | Plank Magazine

“Everyone wins in Hunger Games: The Musical. There are so many things to love about this show. One is the ensemble. Playing multiple characters, each one got their chance to shine.” Eric Darryl | The Real/Darryl Blog

“Epic Fringe romp. Volunteer as tribute for this show.” Daniel Chai | Local Comedian
