The Outré Theatre Company is proud to announce its 2017/18 season, its sixth full season and its first as a resident theatre company of the brand new Pompano Beach Cultural Center!
 
“We’re really looking forward to our new home in Pompano Beach,” said Outré’s Artistic Director Skye Whitcomb. “It’s been a great experience working with the Cultural Arts Creatives in preparation for the season, and we’re very excited about the shows we’re planning on producing. We live in perilous, quickly changing times,” Whitcomb continued. “Our season reflects our commitment to thought-provoking work, and it also reflects the political and social climate we find ourselves in.”

Outré begins its sixth season with a disturbingly timely adaptation of George Orwell’s seminal dystopia 1984. This adaptation, written by Andrew White, premiered at the Lookingglass Theatre in Chicago, and later moved to the Steppenwolf Theatre. This haunting look at fascism and doublethink will be Outré’s first production in the Pompano Beach Cultural Center!
 
American Idiot by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer

Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 2 pm

Outré brings Green Day’s punk opera American Idiot to South Florida. Written as a response to the political climate of the era of “extraordinary rendition,” the Patriot Act, and “freedom fries,” American Idiot follows three friends as they struggle to choose between their dreams and the gray anesthesia of suburbia.
 
Reservoir Dolls adapted by Erika Soerensen
February 1-18, 2018
Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 2 pm
Tickets: $39 adults, $29 seniors, $19 students and industry
Tickets available at www.ccpompano.org or by calling (954) 839-9578
 
Outré is proud to bring an East Coast premiere to the stage of the Pompano Beach Cultural Center: Reservoir Dolls by Erika Soerensen! Quentin Tarantino’s 1992 indie hit breakthrough Reservoir Dogs is reimagined with an all-female cast. A group of thieves assemble to pull off the perfect diamond heist, which turns into a bloody ambush when one of the women turns out to be a police informer. Soerensen’s work is a thoughtful, funny, and bloody commentary on our perception of women and violence. Outré’s production of Reservoir Dolls will also be the first production of the play to be directed by a woman, Assistant Artistic Director Shannon Ouellette.
 
A fourth production, which will be announced at a later date, will run March 22 through April 8, 2018.
 
Season subscriptions for 1984, American Idiot, and Reservoir Dolls are available for $99 for adults, $74 for seniors, and $49 for students and industry. Both season tickets and individual performance tickets may be purchased online at www.ccpompano.org, or by calling (954) 839-9578.
