Arguably one of Vancouver’s favourite actor/singer/dancer/choreographer/director, Jeff Hyslop returns to his hometown to direct Eye Heart Productions’ upcoming Good Boys and True at the Firehall Arts Centre, September 9th to 19th.

Good Boys and TrueProbably best known for his role as the mannequin in the 1980’s children’s show Today’s Special, Hyslop has also toured across Canada with 975 performances in the title role of The Phantom of the Opera.

After a six-year absence from Vancouver, Hyslop will direct Eye Heart’s second production, a Canadian première, of Good Boys and True by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

Aguirre-Sacasa’s drama is a thoughtful take on American class privilege as a popular young 80s prep school student Brandon, is compelled to hide the fact that he is gay from everyone until a video tape surfaces that threatens to destroy his future.

Hyslop directs an all-local cast including Greg Bishop, Taylor Bishop, Steve Love, Claire Robertson, Tara Fynn and starring Teryl Rothery as Elizabeth Hardy.

The creative team that brought last year’s Ashes to the Firehall Arts Centre is again working behind the scenes; Greg Bishop, producer, director, set/lighting designer; Taylor Bishop, co-producer, sound designer; Hilary Marsh, costume designer; Jelena Ikonomovic, stage manager; Jen O’Rourke, asst stage manager and Melanie Bishop, graphic artist.
