COMING IN MARCH 2021
The Outsiders based on the book by S.E. HINTON, Adaptation by CHRISTOPHER SERGEL. Produced by special arrangement with DRAMATIC PUBLISHING, Woodstock, Illinois.
THE OUTSIDERS IS STREAMING FROM MARCH 5 - 19, 2021.
The Outsiders is a searing story of real kids in real situations with real consequences seen through the eyes of young Ponyboy. Territorial battles between the have-it-made rich kids — the Socs — and Ponyboy’s tough, underprivileged "greaser" family and friends are just a part of life. But even in the midst of urban gang warfare, somehow Ponyboy can't forget a short poem that speaks to their fragile young lives. This heroic story of belonging, friendship, and maintaining hope in the face of struggle is a powerful reminder of what young people encounter every day.
Directed by Chris Kelly. TOY's production of THE OUTSIDERS was originally produced in March 2020. This video production was filmed in October 2020.
Running Time TBA.
Strongly recommended for ages 12+ as this production of THE OUTSIDERS is true to the story of the book and film. There will be a portrayal of gang violence.

Recent Virtual Production: NEW KID by Dennis Foon (December 2020)
NEW KID was written by Dennis Foon based on the concept by Jane Howard Baker, and was originally produced by Green Thumb Theatre for Young People, Vancouver, British Columbia.
TOY's 2018 ARCHIVAL PRODUCTION STREAMING FROM DECEMBER 1 - 20, 2020.
This provoking story about an immigrant family is a timely piece for children in grades 5-8. After moving from the fictional “Homeland” to America, the central character, Nick, hopes to make new friends in his new school. Those hopes vanish after his classmates make fun of his clothes, lunch, and his confusion about almost everything. Worst of all, Nick doesn't speak the language. But with a clever twist, New Kid immediately puts us into Nick's shoes by having him speak English and the other characters an unintelligible gibberish. You can imagine the perspective this would give your students on bullying, immigration, and change.
Directed by Meg Quinn. Starring Zachary Bellus, Michael Benoit, Clarissa Maloy and Lisa Vitrano. TOY's production of NEW KID was originally produced in 2018.
Running time of streaming video is 1 hour (including 45-minute production of NEW KID and TOY's talk-back).
Recommended for ages 8+
