Bend It Like Beckham: The Musical in Toronto
Leading live-entertainment company Starvox Entertainment, Bend it Films and Kintop Pictures in association with To Live, are thrilled to announce that they are bringing the acclaimed musical based on the international smash-hit movie BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM to Toronto for its North American premiere. The musical will arrive in time for the holiday season with a limited engagement December 7, 2019 – December 24, 2019 at the Bluma Appel Theatre at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Performing Arts.
A heartwarming musical comedy about bending the rules and living life on your own terms, BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM: The Musical is a vibrant and colourful story about a teen girl from a South Asian Sikh family who desperately wants to play soccer, against the wishes of her traditional immigrant parents. Set in West London, the story follows two teenage girls from different backgrounds who share an aptitude for soccer and pressure from their families to conform. Like the film that won over millions of hearts worldwide, the musical marries contemporary British and South Asian music and dance, the joy of discovering your passion and fighting for it, an irreverent sense of humour, and a healthy dose of girl power.
