Following two successful sell-out seasons of Deadset Theatre Company’s debut premiere shows ‘Puberty Blues’ in 2017 and 2018, DTC are proud to announce their 2019 stage show:
Based on the book by SE Hinton, adapted by Christopher Sergel Directed by Zoe Muller, assisted by Matilda Butler
This iconic coming of age story follows the lives of a teen gang in the 1960’s known as ‘Greasers’ who are perpetually at odds with the Socs, a rival group. When a Soc member is murdered, Greasers Ponyboy and Johnny are forced into hiding. Soon the boys, along with Dallas and the other Greasers, must contend with the consequences of their violent lives. While some Greasers try to achieve redemption, others meet tragic ends.
DTC was founded by three passionate theatre enthusiasts Zoe Muller, Matilda Butler and Jean Collins who have all been performing on stage together since the age of nine. In seeking more opportunities to present shows on stage, their idea of creating a new amateur theatre company for young adults arose. DTC’s aim is to produce shows with a focus on young adults. This in turn will give more opportunities for Adelaide’s young aspiring actors to perform on stage and to showcase their talent.
