King's Wharf Theatre

The inspirational and incredible true story of Ontario’s Preston Rivulettes women’s hockey team comes to life on stage in this new Canadian play that proves a woman's place is on home ice.

In 1933, four friends set out to show the nation that Canada’s favourite pastime isn’t just a sport for men. As they fight through The Great Depression, prejudice, and personal strife, can these determined women overcome the odds and forge their own path to glory?

Featuring electrifying swing dance choreography inspired by the jazz age, GLORY captures all the thrills, exhilaration, and tension of a great hockey game while celebrating female empowerment. Don’t miss the unique theatrical experience that will fill your heart with pride as a scrappy team of upstarts pioneer a new path in the world of sport. Go Rivulettes!

Audience Reviews
  • "★★★★★ 5 Stars! Glory... amazing show.... a must see. " - Jane K., Email.
  • "★★★★★ 5 Stars! What we loved most of all was the choreography of the hockey games. Being able to bring the excitement of an actual hockey game on a rink inside an arena where there was no ice and the actors wearing only shoes was an amazing feat - and the part we enjoyed most." - Spinteacher, Tripadvisor.
  • "★★★★★ 5 Stars! Great Show! You don’t have to be a hockey fan to love it." - Laurie G., Email.
  • "★★★★★ 5 Stars! It was an excellent production, the actors were perfect. It had a great mix of humour, drama, and some very emotional scenes." - Kathie O., Email.
  • "★★★★★ 5 Stars! The five actors rise to the ebb and flow of struggles and triumphs during a time of economical and political upheaval in Canada and around the world. A well deserved standing ovation for the author, the actors, the choreography, the set and every facet of this wonderful show." - Martin S., Email.
