GIRLFRIEND Makes Its Canadian Premiere with Fighting Chance Productions this December 2019 in Vancouver.
For immediate release
Vancouver, BC—July 26—Fighting Chance Productions is returning to the stage to premiere this new musical written by Todd Almond with Music and lyrics by Matthew Sweet.
Set in Nebraska in the 90’s, Will, a bit of a social outcast, and Mike, the popular football player, figure out that there is more to life than what high school has taught them. Days after graduation they explore their relationship and begin to ask themselves where their lives begin. Based on the album by Matthew Sweet, Girlfriend is a pop/rock musical for everyone who’s lived in a small town and feels for their first love.
Leading the helm is producer/director, Chris Lam (West Moon Theatre's Next to Normal and ETC's Dark Road) and with a stunning debut by musical director, Monica Sumulong Dumas.
The production is presented at THE NEST (formerly Studio 1398) on Granville Island, running this Dec 10-21.
