Strike! The Musical

Based on true events, Strike! The Musical by Danny Schur and Rick Chafe tells the climactic story of the Winnipeg General Strike in an extraordinary performance of singing and dancing.

The hit musical Strike! co-written and composed by Winnipeg’s own Danny Schur in 2003, has come full circle, having been reimagined by a visionary creative team at Rainbow Stage and playwright Rick Chafe to include elements from an upcoming film adaptation.

The story follows Ukrainian immigrant Stefan Sokolowski as he falls in love with pro-strike Jewish suffragette Rebecca Almazoff to the dismay of his father who fears she makes them a deportation target. The new script features songs from the movie, true historical elements, and a cast that represents the diverse group of people who were present at that time, to tell a courageous story of overcoming prejudices towards class, religion and ethnicity.
