Lorraine Kimsa Theatre for Young People (LKTYP) kicks off the New Year with The Big League by James Durham, a wildly popular hockey drama that cleverly stick-handles Canada’s national pastime. LKTYP’s Mainstage will be transformed into a hockey arena, complete with actors on roller blades, in a unique production running from January 31 to February 24, 2011.
Tommy loves playing hockey with his friends – Roy “Deke” Mahovlich and Roberta “Bobby” Plante – but his Dad pressures him to up his game and moves him to a “better” team. Does friendship get benched when the competition heats up between teammates? While his Dad is yelling, Tommy gets conflicting advice from Don Berry and Ron McKleen.
Directed by Mary Ellen MacLean. Featuring Matt Bois, Mark McGrinder, Simon Rainville and Tamila Zaslavsky.
Set & Costume Design by Jung-Hye Kim, Lighting Design by Rebecca Picherack, Original Music & Sound Design by Lyon Smith, Assistant Director Stephen Colella, Stage Manager Andrea Schurman, Assistant Stage Manager Sarah Bustard.
