Barrington High School Fall Play: “The Outsiders”

Friday-Sunday, Nov. 9-11, Barrington High School Auditorium 

Barrington High School’s Fine Arts Department will present “The Outsiders” on Friday, Nov. 9 and Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. A matinee will also be performed on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2:30 p.m. in the Richard C. Johnson Auditorium at Barrington High School. “The Outsiders” is a hopeful coming of age story seen through the eyes of Ponyboy, a “Greaser” from the wrong side of the tracks. While he and his underprivileged “Greaser” family are caught up in a turf war with the rich kids, the “Socs”, Pony finds decency in those that he is supposed to hate the most and learns the value in seeing the “gold within us all”.

The box office will open one hour before each performance. Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students and children. A $5 senior citizen donation is encouraged.
