twin city stage

Twin City Stage will hold auditions for The Outsiders from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, August 24 at the Arts Council Theatre, 610 Coliseum Drive, Winston-Salem. No appointment is necessary.

Teen rivalry in a small Southern town sets the stage for this dramatic interpretation by Christopher Sergel of the novel by S. E. Hinton. Seen through the eyes of young Ponyboy, a Greaser on the wrong side of life, The Outsiders tells the story of the ongoing conflict between the underprivileged Greasers and the rich kid Socs in rural Oklahoma. When a territorial battle goes wrong, Ponyboy and his friends have to grow up quickly, holding on to their hope and their friends in the midst of a very climactic ending.

Cheri Van Loon will direct The Outsiders, the first Youth Production Series play in Twin City Stage’s 2014-15 season. There are roles available for 9 males (ages 14-21), 3 females (ages 14-18), and 2 women and 3 men (ages 25-60).
