Join us for an afternoon of fun with our tough-as-nails friends at the Carolina Roller Derby!

Written, produced and directed by women and featuring an amazing female cast including Ellen Page, Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis, Alia Shawkat and Zoe Bell, this ridiculously entertaining sports drama has gone from box office disappointment to cult hit in just a few short years.

Based on the novel by Shauna Cross (who herself skated under the pseudonym Maggie Mayhem), Page stars as Bliss Cavendar, a young Texan who pushes back against her mother’s beauty pageant aspirations for her and instead joins a local roller derby team, The Hurl Scouts. Bliss, skating under the name Babe Ruthless, finds herself asserting a newfound dominance both in the rowdy derby rinks, and also at home, with her disapproving and domineering mother.

Featuring a cast made up of actual derby girls and teams from across the country, WHIP IT has gone on to inspire a number of real life pro skaters. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to hip check your enemies.
