Climb aboard Chasse-Galerie! Based on one of Canada’s most beloved folk tales, the Dora Award and Toronto Theatre Critics’ Award-winning musical Chasse-Galerie follows the adventures of four coureuses des bois stuck deep in the Québec forest on New Year’s Eve. The four woods-women, pining for warmth and their loved ones, strike a deal with a mysterious stranger who offers to enchant their canoe to fly back to Montreal. The catch: make it back before dawn, or pay the devil’s price. The indie hit of last year’s holiday theatre season at The Storefront Theatre, Chasse-Galerie has been reimagined for a November mainstage run at Soulpepper.
The cast of Chasse-Galerie features: Ghazal Azarbad, Tess Benger, Hunter Cardinal, Mike Cox, Kat Letwin, Nicole Power, Tyrone Savage, Shaina Silver-Baird, James Smith and Alicia Toner; and musicians Justin Han and Jason O’Brien.
Tickets for Chasse-Galerie range from $25 to $50. In celebration of Soulpepper’s 20th Anniversary Season, ArtsWorker and StagePlay (under 30) tickets are now available for only $20, conditions apply.
