Thank you to everyone who attended BARDI GRAS on Tuesday Feb 28th at Madame X. A great time was had, music was in the air, and we raised some much needed funds for LOVELESS TEXAS coming up in Fall 2017.

Did you miss the party, but still wanted to contribute to the madness? Click here!

Rock-n-Roles: Country Rock Bootleg

Make sure you join us this Saturday October 1st at 7:30pm for a wild and raucous ROCK-N-ROLES: COUNTRY ROCK BOOTLEG. We’ve got a tremendous lineup of talented folks making brand new 10 minute plays inspired by some of the greatest Country Rock of all time.

Five songs will be selected randomly from these kick-ass musicians…

rnr-graphic Lucinda Williams * Johnny Cash * Band of Horses
Alabama Shakes * The Lone Bellow
The Avett Brothers * Bonnie Raitt * John Cougar Mellencamp
and more…

From there, it’s all creative chaos and chaotic creativity…Playwrights create overnight, directors shape the work, actors learn their lines, and in a mad dash of insanity, hilarity and daring…new plays are born.

Participants in this year’s event include Christina Ashby, Molly Ballerstein, Christopher Borg, James Comtois, Desmond Dutcher, Siho Ellsmore, Emily Gardner Hall, Bethany Geraghty, Cailín Heffernan, Shelley McPherson, Mateo Moreno, Linda S. Nelson, Jamie Parton, Christina Elise Perry, Kristine M. Reyes, Maria Seigenthaler, Paul Sheehan, Gabby Sherba, Marshall Simon, Mark Souza, Sara Thigpen, Jaime West and Jen Wineman.

Come check out which songs spark great new plays!

Giving…Wednesday?

Wait- Giving Wednesday- (1)

Well, we like to do things a little differently around here. Different things like free productions in Central Park, new plays inspired by rock music, and classic works together in rotating rep. Yeah, we’re kooky like that. But we see things with a unique point of view, and use performances to speak about ourselves in personal ways.

We talk about what matters to us, about dreams and frustrations, about hope and love, and about loss and grief. We reflect back the world as we see it.

If you are interested in supporting our work, we’d love to have you along for the ride. It can be bumpy, funky, wild or intense, but it’s never boring.

Please make your tax-deductible donation right here. Thank you very much!

Help support the Independent Spirit!

Keep independent theater thriving brand new
This coming weekend we will honor the independent spirit that gave birth to a nation.

Boomerang Theatre Company is asking you to celebrate that same spirit by supporting independent theatre. As a cultural organization, we engage audiences with ideas of who we are today, and what we hope and dream for tomorrow.

Like all not-for-profit theatres, Boomerang cannot survive on ticket sales alone. We depend on the generosity of our community to support and empower our work.

With your help and inspiration, we will continue to support artists who reflect our changing nation and our vibrant moment in history.

Please click here to make a tax deductible donation.

If you’d prefer to send a check, please make it payable to Boomerang Theatre Company and send it to P.O. Box 237166 Ansonia Station, New York NY 10023

Thank you!
Tim, Sue, John, Cailin and Danielle
