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.

Since 1999, Boomerang Theatre Company has provided free productions of Shakespeare’s greatest plays on summer afternoons in parks throughout New York City. These productions are a vital part of New York City’s cultural life, allowing any audience member a chance to attend the theatre without the burden of a ticket price.
For many people, it’s their first time ever seeing a play.
We’re back for our 17th Season in the park with Shakespeare’s late magical romance CYMBELINE, and we need your help to make these extraordinary moments continue.
We’re seeking 200 donations of $25 to support this program by Friday April 17th at midnight. Won’t you play a part?
When looking back on our year at Boomerang Theatre Company we have been thrilled to have had the opportunity to:
Give 14 playwrights the opportunity to develop new work
Produce 2 exciting Shakespeare Revivals in outdoor settings
Provide entertainment for over 7000 audience members
And none of this would have been possible without YOU our generous donors and supporters. This year your support has been invaluable in paying for everything from rehearsal space to period costumes, to compensation for all of the incredible talent we’ve been able to bring together. We are so grateful for those of you who attended our shows, donated to our campaigns, and spread the word on social media. We love making great theatre for you and we’re excited to make even more in 2015.
In the coming year, we plan to:
Host another FREE Shakespeare production in Central Park
Expand our First Flight new play festival and continue to support the work of talented playwrights.
Present the first musical in Boomerang’s production history
And we hope that you’ll be a part of all of this with us again. As we close out 2014, we look to you our supporters to help us continue the work we’re doing.
We know that this time of year your inbox is usually loaded with requests for support, and we appreciate you considering us in your end of year giving process. We have an ambitious season ahead of us and we’re counting on your support.
Won’t you join us in making awesome theatre in 2015?
