Friday will be the final day to see the South Kamloops secondary production of The Outsiders.
The play, based on the seminal coming-of-age book by S.E. Hinton, is adapted by Christopher Sergel and sees South Kamloops student actors taking on the roles of Ponyboy Sodapop, Darrel, Two-Bit, Dallas, Steve, Johnny, Sandy and Cherry as they navigate life in Tulsa in the 1960s.
Those acting in the play are about the same age the author of The Outsiders was when she wrote the story. Hinton created the story when she was 15 and 16 and saw the book published when she was 18.
The play is being performed under the direction of new South Kamloops secondary drama teacher Amy Fonseca.
The Outsiders will be performed on Friday at 11:30 a.m. and 7 p.m in the TRU Actor’s Workshop Theatre in the Old Main Building on the campus of Thompson Rivers University.
Tickets can be purchased at the door.
