Firebringer is an original StarKid musical. It premiered July 6 through August 7 of 2016 in Chicago, as part of the StarKid Summer Season 2016. The musical is expected to be released online in December.
An announcement for a new StarKid production titled "Firebringer", was released through Team StarKid's YouTube channel, in StarKid Announcement Stardate 1.1.16 AD on January 1st, 2016. The video was also shared on Twitter and on Facebook, with the caption, "We'll be back at Stage 773 this summer with FireBringer and more!".
"Firebringer" is an original story that follows a tribe of prehistoric humans as they struggle to survive the stone age. On top of the harsh conditions, hostile neighboring tribes, and complete lack of understanding in the world around them, the gang lives in fear of the ultimate, deadly predator, Snarl. When one misfit member of the tribe sets out to change things, she stumbles upon the greatest discovery in human history. Using this mysterious and dangerous new force, she'll rise from omega to alpha and become... the Firebringer.
