MADE IN ITALY

By Farren Timoteo

July 28–August 21, 2022—LIMITED RUN!
Granville Island Stage
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! YOUR SUMMER JUST GOT A WHOLE LOT FUNNIER

In this musical coming-of-age story, you'll step back into the 1970s and meet Francesco Mantini, a second-generation Italian teen struggling to find his place in Jasper, Alberta. Inspired by pop culture icons Rocky Balboa and John Travolta, he reinvents himself as Frank Martin, crooner and ladies’ man. Equal parts comedy and music, and as buoyant and bubbly as a glass of prosecco, Made in Italy is a hilariously heartwarming celebration of family that you don't want to miss.

Winner of the 2022 Jessie Award for Outstanding Performance in a Leading Comedic Role
