Redfoot Youth Theatre Presents – Kicker Thompson
May 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
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?
Featuring boarders from St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School and Hale School in Year 7 and Year 8, Kicker Thompson is a play for young teenagers. It brings together the warmth, humour and great gifts of the country with the challenges and trials faced 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.
This show runs for approximately 60minutes and will be followed by light refreshments.
This play is recommended for ages 10+.
Saturday 13 May, 6:00pm
Doors open at 5.15pm (a lock-out period may apply for late-comers).
