THE BIG LEAGUE- The retirement party…

October 29th, 2009

Okay, here’s the official blurb. We have this fantastic touring show that has been on the road for eons. For ever. Epic touring show that has been seen by over 145 000 people. And we get asked by parents all the time- “When can I bring my kids to see it, if it’s not going to their school?” Well- now we have an answer for you.

It’s BACK by popular demand!

At the Waterfront Theatre (1412 Cartwright Street on Granville Island)

For Ages 5+

Carousel Theatre’s award-winning production is hanging up its skates after 5 seasons, 3 national tours, and 2 Jessie Awards! But before the team jersey is officially retired and raised to the rafters, we’re bringing it home to our Vancouver family one last time.

Follow four actors on rollerblades as they face-off over sportsmanship, family relationships and the pressure to succeed. Tommy loves playing hockey but he doesn’t like that his dad yells at him from the stands. Neither do Tommy’s friends. As the game gets tougher, Tommy must decide just how far he will let himself be pushed.

A fast-paced and poignant show, The Big League isn’t just about hockey – it’s about trying your best, and most importantly, having fun while you’re doing it. The Big League has played to over 147 000 young people in 437 performances in Canada to date! This production is for ages 5 and up.

The talented cast includes Gaelan Beatty, Mack Gordon,  Almeera Jiwa and Jacques Lalonde.  Carousel Theatre’s production will feature the work of an award-winning creative team: Director Carole Higgins, Set Designer Al Frisk, Costume Designer Jay Havens and Sound Designer Jeff Tymoschuk. Stage Management by David Warburton.
