Why New Plays Matter

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our 20th Anniversary Holiday Campaign. We’re off to a great start, and there’s still time for you to join the team. Take a look at this great new video below asking for your help to support New Play Development.

We’re asking for donations of $20 to support our 20th Anniversary.

  1. A $20 monthly recurring gift (about sixty five cents per day) makes the most impact on our artists and our audience. This allows us to sustain the work even when no box office comes in or while waiting for grant money to arrive (we often have to wait a long time between “winning” the grant and actually GETTING the grant money). You can make a recurring donation here.
  2. A $20 one time gift helps to support new plays and new visions. In our first 19 seasons, we have brought 60 plays to life in full productions, and nearly 100 in labs, workshops and readings. Your gift is significant! You can make a one time donation here.

One of the major programs you are supporting during our 20th Anniversary are our New Play programs. Check out this short video about why new plays matter.

Our new play programs make a huge impact by creating an artistic home for many playwrights. Thank you in advance for your support!

Boomerang’s 20th Anniversary Holiday Campaign

Welcome to Boomerang Theatre Company’s 20th Anniversary Season.

We began this journey in 1999 with three plays, not very much money, and an idea of presenting great plays in new ways. Now, after 19 years of 60 plays, 80 readings and thousands of audience members, we are just as excited for this adventure as ever before.

This holiday season we are asking you to support our “20th Anniversary Holiday Campaign” which will support our continued theatrical undertakings.

As part of #GivingTuesday and continuing through December, we are asking people to make a recurring donation of $20 per month (in honor of our 20th Anniversary). If that is more than you are able to contribute, we have a number of other giving levels that you can find here.

Here’s what your donation is making possible:
-An expanded 2018 FIRST FLIGHT New Play Festival, which will feature more plays than any previous fest.
-Our production of TWELFTH NIGHT in Central Park, opening June 16th 2018
-Our growing intern program, which annually brings new artists into the Indie Theater community and introduces them to our award-winning production style
-A premiere mainstage production in Fall 2018. Recent mainstage works have included LOVELESS TEXAS by Henry Aronson and Cailin Heffernan, and THE RECKLESS SEASON by Lauren Ferebee.
-The latest edition of ROCK-N-ROLES, our new play event combining theatre with great music

Please join us for this milestone season. We count on your donations as a vital step in keeping these programs alive. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Grab your Crew for BARDI GRAS on Tuesday February 28th!

Mark your calendars, and bust out your costumes and masks for BARDI GRAS on February 28th.

The evening has all the makings of a night you will never forget…adventure, romance, mystery, passion, music and a libation or three to wash it all down.

This is the night you’ve been waiting for. The siren sound in your heart is leading you to this moment. We cannot wait to experience this epic night with you.

Mardi Gras is famous for its Crews, groups that together dress in a theme, build a float together, or celebrate in their own unique style. Gather your crew, dress as creative or provocative as you dare, and sample what the night has to offer.

Put together your Crew of sexy Shakespeareans. Or dare to assemble as the most notorious New Orleanians you can think of. Or mix and match to your heart’s content.

Tickets go on sale later this week, and we have a limited number. Make sure you get yours early.

Follow us at @boomerangtheatre to make sure you have all the info.

Grab yours masks and beads…It’s BARDI GRAS on February 28th!

For one night only, the sultry nights and cascading music of New Orleans come together with the poetry of Stratford Upon Avon. Tap into the spirit of the night for some romance, cocktails, masks, beads and adventure…

Mark your calendars and prepare to style yourself as a Shakespearean character, a famous New Orleanian, or a provocative mash-up of your own design. Masks are optional… and just a little decadent.

Welcome to the night you have been longing for.
