GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Playwright Mitch Albom is once again taking to the stage, this time with a musical comedy.

“Hockey – The Musical!” focuses on God’s decision to get rid of one sport. In an attempt to save their favorite game, a group of diehard fans band together to prove that Hockey is worth keeping. Along their adventure the group performs songs, gains knowledge, and learns to work together to save Hockey. This comedy features original music and lyrics by Mitch Albom. He suggests that It’s the “perfect musical for couples that fight over going to musicals and everyone will be happy at this show.”

“Hockey – the Musical!” comes to Grand Rapids in August to Wealthy Street Theatre. Thursday August 17th is a special opening night preview party. There are four more performances August 18th through August 20th.
