JACQUES PLANTE AND THE PARKDALE KNITTING LEAGUE, written by Paul McLaughlin and directed by Colleen McGoff Dean, is the upcoming readers’ theatre production by the Naked Stage Production Society.

McLaughlin weaves together a true life account of legendary NHL goalie, Jacques Plante (played by Clive Ramroop) with the fictionalized story of Violet Henderson (Nancy Painter), a lonely Toronto housewife who falls in love with Plante when she hears that, like herself, he is an avid knitter.

The story spans more than 20 years of both Plantes varied and at times tumultuous career, and the romantic fantasy developed by Violet. Other cast members include George Stone, as Violets husband Fred, Braden Deans as Coach, Lorraine Landry as both Jacqueline and Rosamond, Plantes successive wives, and Peter McCreath as the NHL Announcer.
Performances are Friday and Saturday, March 16th & 17th at 7:30 pm, and Sunday at 2 pm, at the Newton Cultural Centre, 13530 72nd Ave. Surrey. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased ay www.brownpapertickets.com or at the door.
