Lyrics by David H. Bell and Michael Mahler

Produced by special arrangement with John Girardi and Greg Schaffert

Legendary Notre Dame football coach Knute Rockne is regarded as one of America’s greatest football coaches of all time, having brought the University to great prominence during his accomplished career with over 100 victories and five undefeated seasons.  But as he chased fame and glory for his “Fighting Irish” boys, he left his own family waiting on the sidelines. Directed and choreographed by Northwestern University faculty member and Jeff Award-winner David H. Bell (The Waa-Mu Show) this rousing and celebratory new musical is about family sacrifice and one man’s journey to discover what’s most important in the “game of life”.

This developmental production is produced in partnership with Jack Girardi, Greg Schaffert, and the American Music Theatre Project at Northwestern University and will feature a cast of 23 professional Chicago and Northwestern student actors, spectacular sets and costumes, and irresistible show stopping musical numbers!
