STARVOX ENTERTAINMENT, BEND IT FILMS AND KINTOP PICTURES, in association with TO LIVE, ANNOUNCE THE NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE OF **WINNER BEST MUSICAL – UK CRITICS’ CIRCLE THEATRE AWARDS**: Bend It Like Beckham, The Musical
 

 

Toronto, ON – 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.

 

We are tremendously excited to be bringing this absolutely iconic story to North America and to be debuting it in Toronto,” says Starvox Entertainment Founder and CEO Corey Ross.

 

“We are delighted to be working with Starvox to bring this production to Toronto said Deepak Nayar of Kintop Pictures, who produced the Movie and the Show in the West End

 

“Bend It Like Beckham is truly a family friendly musical that blends a fresh story, a great multicultural element - the fusion of contemporary and South Asian music and dance - and the amazing message that girls can and should be totally unlimited in pursuing their dreams! If you and your family love musicals, soccer and Bollywood dancing this is for you!”


Gurinder Chadha of Bend It Films, who will co-direct the Toronto production, adds” I love this musical, in many ways I think it’s better than my film! Toronto is the perfect city to stage it as the audience just gets all the cultural joy and celebration.”
