Hello everyone! We’ve continuing to share photos of the year-long celebration that is the 2018 First Flight New Play Festival.

This year’s festival is expanded to a year long celebration of new plays. It will include readings and workshops of 20 new works, in honor of our 20th Anniversary. We think this festival is a wonderful way for us to invest in new plays and the people who make them.

If you’d like to support this season, you can make a donation here

In January, we hosted the first four readings of the festival. Check out some pictures below!

Video: Supporting Artists thru End of Year Giving

Thank you to everyone who has donated to our campaign. We are thrilled you have added your support to our 20th Anniversary Season.

Why are we raising money, and what is our 2018 season about? It’s about breaking new ground. It’s about creating a new story specifically for the world we live in. And it’s about trying to understand each other a little better, thru community and story.

For our third video, our Board and Staff added their thoughts on why people should support our campaign, why supporting the arts is critical and much more. Take a look…

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.
