Description: They’re tough, they’re hockey players, and they’re women. The year is 1933 and Canada is mired in the height of the Depression. For a group of softball players in small town Ontario, the end of their season and the impending long, cold winter only make matters worse – until they discover a talent for our national sport. Based on a true story.
Roles / Ranges: GLORY has a large movement element, and includes choreography inspired by the physical techniques of hockey and 1930’s swing dancing. In your cover letter please indicate your movement background. Experience playing hockey is an asset but not essential. Actors from all ethnocultural backgrounds are encouraged to audition.
- HILDA RANSCOMBE: Age 20-27 Team Captain.
As a player, the Hayley Wickenheiser of her time. Loves the sport more than anything. She finds the belief and confidence in herself on the ice, but struggles with her life away from the rink.
- NELLIE RANSCOMBE: Age 21-29 Goalie.
Highly intelligent. Passionate about her team and teammates, but uncertain in her abilities as a player.
- MARM SCHMUCK: Age 20-27 Power forward.
Speaks her mind. Uses a biting sense of humour and turn of phrase to deal with the hits that life throws at her. Fights against the anti-semitism of 1930’s Canada.
- HELEN SCHMUCK: Age 21-29 Defense.
Tries to reconcile her traditional views of femininity and a woman’s place in society with her love of the game.
Fights to prove to the world that the two can co-exist.
