Gallery 7 Theatre stages The Outsiders

Gallery 7 Theatre & Performance Arts Society in Abbotsford kick off its season with a stage adaptation of S.E. Hilton’s The Outsiders.

This Friday, Gallery 7 Theatre & Performance Arts Society will kick off their season with Christopher Sergel’s stage adaptation of S.E. Hilton’s The Outsiders.

Thespians from the Fraser Valley will perform in this drama, where the plot-line includes clashes between youth from different social classes in the 1960s.

Two gangs rival each other, after a member from the Greasers kills a Soc during an unprovoked attack.

In each group, the members depend on each other for safety and survival.

It’s an important production for the Fraser Valley community, said Ken Hildebrandt, Gallery 7’s artistic director.

“It explores the lives of young people seeking refuge in gangs. It also explores the people behind the tough exterior, revealing the pain, anxiety and more importantly, the hopes and dreams that reside in their souls.”

Actors include Phil Dyck, Jeremy Hoos, Dallas Hanson, Corryn Ginter, Morgan Cox, Kenzie Hall, Torry Janz, Patrick Jolicoeur, Zachery Keely, Janik Livera, Greg Potoky, Natasha Thompson, Jenna Veenbaas, Reyna Webb, and Becky Wiebe. Directing the play is Megan Mackenzie.

Performances run Nov. 4-5, 10-12, 17-19, at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for evening shows are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors (65 and up), $15 for students and groups of 10 or more, and $10 for children 12 and under.

Matinees are on Nov. 5 and Nov. 12 at 2 p.m., where tickets are discounted.

All shows are at the MEI Auditorium, 4081 Clearbrook Rd.
