It was a busy three-game weekend for the Red Deer Rebels highlighted by the return of the WHL’s reigning goal scoring champion!

Ben King returned to the lineup Friday night at the Peavey Mart Centrium after missing 31 games to a lower body injury. King scored in the third period of a wild 8-5 win over the visiting Prince George Cougars. Kai Uchacz had a career high five points (two goals, three assists). Jayden Grubbe tied his career high with four points (one goal, three assists). Mats Lindgren also equalled his career best with three points on the night.

Saturday night was a much different game as the Rebels had to work right to the end for a 2-1 come from behind overtime win over the visiting Brandon Wheat Kings. Grubbe tied the game with a power play goal with just over two minutes left in the third period. Kalan Lind then came through with the overtime winner.

Sunday afternoon in Calgary, the Rebels fell to the Hitmen 4-2 at the Scotiabank Saddledome. It was Red Deer’s first loss in six games versus Calgary this season.

The Rebels are now 31-9-1-3 on the season for 66 points. They lead the Central Division by 13 points over the Lethbridge Hurricanes.



– Friday, Jan. 27 – The Saskatoon Blades visit the Peavey Mart Centrium for the second and final time this season

Notre Dame Fine Arts Department invites you to see Roald Dahl’s Matilda, the Musical!

Published on

From Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools

Roald Dahl’s Matilda, the Musical!


Co-Directed by Jennifer Cocolicchio and Stephanie Layden starring Addy Penney, Jordana Woroniuk, Coryn Tardif, David Jones, and Mikayla Beever.

Please join the Notre Dame Fine Arts students for their interpretation of Matilda.

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical, from the Royal Shakespeare Company, revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. Book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin.

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and quick wit, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

The shows take place at Red Deer’s Memorial Centre on February 9, 10, & 11 at 7:00pm. There is also a Matinee on February 11 at 1:00pm.


TICKETS AVAILABLE in advance at Notre Dame’s front office, online at or on the date at the theatre door.

SPECIAL PREVIEW NIGHT on February 8 at 7:00pm – Free for all press representatives and pay what you can for the general public.
