Fun Photo Collages for the Season

Hi everyone…Here at Boomerang we put together photo collages for Annual Reporting requirements (basically we send these off to people who are looking for photographic evidence we actually did things). I thought we’d share them with you, as sort of a visual summary of what we’ve been doing these last 12 months. We’re still working on the version of Love’s Labour’s Lost…

One of the most exciting moments in LICKSPITTLES, BUTTONHOLERS AND DAMNED PERNICIOUS GO-BETWEENS is the invention of the FLYVEMASKINE or “Viking Flying Machine”.

lbdpgbLickspittles, Buttonholers and Damned Pernicious Go-Betweens
by Johnna Adams
Directed by John Hurley
Boomerang’s 2013 hit comedy return for an extended run! More laughs, more rhymes, more silliness. And even more french accents!

Three extraneous Danish court officials: a professional loud mouth (the buttonholer), a kiss ass for hire (the lickspittle) and a successful dastard (the go-between) are tossed out of court just as Denmark’s merchant fleet becomes of strategic importance in the Napoleonic war. The three men journey to France and meet Napoleon’s top lickspittle, buttonholer and go-between, their female counterparts. Plots abound, flying machines are destroyed and the head of Marie Antoinette is discovered during the madcap struggle to save Copenhagen from British howitzers. The main characters speak in rhyming alexandrine verse, while a host of supporting characters converse in sestinas, haiku, free verse, limericks and sonnets. In a rhyming, metered world, the offbeat rules.

Waving Goodbye
by Jamie Pachino
Directed by Jordana Williams
Waving Goodbye is the story of Lily Blue, a 17-year-old photographer who loses her father in a mountain climbing accident, and must spend her 17th year with the mother who abandoned her. It’s also a story of loss, grief, change, making art, wishing things were different, being stalled, finding love, not turning into your mother, and those irrevocable moments after which nothing is ever the same.
