Chasing Champions by Jacob Sampson

Parrsboro, Nova Scotia – 10/01/18
Chasing Champions originated at Ship’s Company Theatre in the summer of 2016. It became lovingly known as ‘the show about boxing”. It was a regular occurrence for locals to see the actors training in the town: whether it be running around Parrsboro or sparring and doing pushups on the lawn. The hard work inside and outside the theatre paid off as Chasing Champions went on to be presented by Eastern Front Theatre in Halifax and then won six Theatre Nova Scotia Merritt Awards including Outstanding New Play, Outstanding Production, Outstanding Lead Actor, Outstanding Supporting Actor and more!

Chasing Champions plays October 18-20 at The Ship in Parrsboro before going on tour to Dartmouth October 24-27 at Alderney Landing Theatre. The show then travels to St. Anne’s University for October 30-November 3, where it will be presented by the Weymouth Waterfront Development. The production moves to Windsor, NS from November 7-9 at the Mermaid Imperial Performing Arts Centre. It finishes its tour with a run at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa from November 13-24 as part of the NAC English theatre season. For tickets and more details to the performances call 1-800-565-SHOW or go to Ship’s Company Theatre.
