A woman’s place is on home ice.

In 1933, four friends set out to prove to Canada that hockey isn’t just a sport for men. As they fight through the Great Depression, prejudice, and personal upheaval, can they overcome the odds and forge their own path to glory? Gateway Theatre is proud to present GLORY, the inspirational, triumphant, and incredible true story of the Preston Rivulettes women’s hockey team.

Hilda (Katie Ryerson), a natural-born mucker and grinder, brings together a team of fierce women, including her sister Nellie (Morgan Yamada) and the Schwartz sisters Helen (Kate Dion-Richard) and Marm (Advah Soudack) to compete in the Ontario Women’s League championship. With support from their coach Herb Fach (Andrew Wheeler), the women take to the ice and create hockey history.

Featuring electrifying dance choreography and original scores inspired by swing music from the 1930s, GLORY captures all the thrills, excitement, and tension of a great hockey game. Go Rivulettes!
