Redfoot Youth Theatre Presents – Kicker Thompson – Beverley
May 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Show and a Shindig!
Join our boarders from St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School and Hale School in Year 7 and Year 8 as they bring the story of Kicker Thompson to life! Hang about after the show for some light refreshments.
Kicker Thompson is a tough, fun-loving farm kid who was born with a footy in his hand. Every afternoon, he tears around the back paddock imagining he’s kicking goals at the MCG! Day and night, he dreams of becoming an AFL superstar. But then, one day, out of nowhere, ‘the thing’ arrives. Kicker is terrified! He tells no-one about ‘the thing’ but fights desperately to beat it. Will he win or will ‘the thing’ mean the end of his footy dream?
This play about teenagers brings together the warmth, humour and great gifts of the country with the unique challenges encountered by those who live there. It embraces the love of family, support of community and even includes a hint of romance. Kicker Thompson embarks on a true hero’s journey and takes us with him on every emotional step of the way.
Your ticket includes the show, which runs for approximately 50mins and refreshments to follow.
This play is recommended for ages 10+.
