SYNOPSIS

The Segal is continuing on its mission to bring great Canadian stories to the stage with the development of another brand new musical. The Segal has commissioned and will produce the world premiere of the musical adaptation of Roch Carrier’s beloved story: The Hockey Sweater . The production will pay homage to this treasured Quebec story by reinventing the classic tale about one of Montreal’s greatest passions into a modern musical for the whole family.

In 1946, Roch Carrier lived for one thing only: hockey. When his favourite hockey sweater–the glorious “tricolore”–becomes tattered and too small, his mother insists he get a new one. But when a mail-order mix-up leaves him dressed in enemy colours, Roch must learn the importance of what's in your heart, even when it's not on your sleeve.
