Canadian Press -- - EDMONTON A small Calgary theatre company is going to court to try to reverse a judge's order that prevents it from staging a popular musical comedy featuring a character named Jim Keegstra. Jim Keegstra of Eckville, Alta., is scheduled to go on trial for wilfully promoting hatred against an identifiable group. The judge made the ruling in an effort to ensure fairness in the jury trial, which begins Monday in Red Deer. The play llsa, Queen of the Nazi Love Camp was being presented in Edmonton by Northern Light Theatre. "Ironically, it's a play about racial tolerance or in this case intolerance and free speech, and we can't say our piece," said Grant Burns, general manager of Calgary's One Yellow Rabbit Theatre. "The rights of the individual, the rights of Jim Keegstra, have been ruled more important." Keegstra, 57, a former teacher in Eckville, said he has heard from friends who have seen the play that it is "perverse and pornographic," and he believes its intent is to promote hatred against Germans.
