THE OUTSIDERS

MAY RIVER THEATRE CO. PRESENTS NEW SUMMER SHOW 

This summer, May River Theatre presents “The Outsiders,” a classic coming-of-age story based on a novel by S.E. Hinton and focused on themes of class conflict, acceptance, and loyalty.

“’The Outsiders’ has been a part of our school curriculum for years and is a staple of modern American literature that is loved by all ages,” said director Michelle McElroy, who recently directed Main Street Youth Theatre’s production of “High School Musical.” “It is also holds great relevance to many American struggles today.”

The cast of “The Outsiders” is predominantly male, drawing from a pool of young men with a love for theater and who have participated in shows at the local, high school or college level.

“The opportunity to take the stage with this young cast and tell these character’s stories perfectly captures why we do theatre in the first place,” said assistant director Logan Naddy.

“The Outsiders” takes the stage July 25-28 and Aug. 1-4. Tickets are $27 and can be purchased online at www.mayrivertheatre.com. Ulmer Auditorium at Bluffton Town Hall. 20 Bridge St. Bluffton. For more information, call 843-815-5581.
