The New Canadian Curling Club play, a part of MTC’s Regional Tour playing on the Glesby stage on Feb. 6, is quickly filling seats.
In the heat of Canada’s curling season, the Royal MTC Play The New Canadian Curling Club takes a humorous look at the sport through the eyes of small town organizers and newcomers to Canada.
The town (any small town in curling mad Canada) is so small it only has one Tim Hortons. But community-minded Marlene is determined to “diversify” the curling club. She enlists four newcomers to learn the game but when she breaks her hip, it’s up to her politically incorrect ex-husband Stuart to step in. Things start off badly and get worse. Stuart doesn’t think the new Canadians can hack it and they have bigger worries than mastering this bizarre sport. With team unity on the rocks, time is running out. Will they be able to sweep aside their problems to compete in the Highland Cup? Hurry hard to the theatre to find out!
Doors open on Feb. 6, at 7 p.m. with curtain at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are still available at the Glesby Theatre box office, at 204‑239‑4848, or at www.eventbrite.ca and sell for $25
