The Breakfast Club Hits the Stage at Glendon
“… And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds are immune to your consultations. They’re quite aware of what they’re going through…”
Lionheart Productions is excited to announce that their mainstage production in the 2015-2016 season will be The Breakfast Club. The show, which will be running from January 20th to the 23rd, is a non-for-profit tribute to the late John Hughes. The performances will be held in Theater Glendon.
The show is an adaptation of the cult-classic movie of the same name, and follows the lives of 5 diverse students as they are forced to go to detention on a Saturday in 1980’s America. The play deals with the themes of adolescence, the stress of being young, peer pressure, parental issues, and the struggle of socially constructed stereotypes.
Lionheart Productions is excited to be producing The Breakfast Club. The relatively young company uses the outstanding talent at Glendon College to produce profession level shows. Lionheart Productions have produced a range of successful shows such as The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Dark Lady, and Spring Awakening, as well as their annual theater festival The Fridge Festival.
The show will be every evening from January 20th to the 23rd at 7:00 pm in Theater Glendon (YH188). Suggested ticket price is $10 for York students and $15 for non-students. Please reserve in advance online at thebreakfastclubgl.eventbrite.ca and pay at the door the night of the performance (cash only).
