South Lake Union’s boom! theater company announces new season

boom! theater company
New Works Festival, Phase 2
April 12th-May 5th

boom! theater company is just two weeks away from the opening of the second half our New Works Festival taking place at the boom! theater in South Lake Union from April 12th through May 5th. Offering 8 new works from within and outside the company as well as 2 living installations, any night at the theater will be completely different than the next. Take a look at what The Stranger had to say about the first half of our festival:

“The people of the boom! theater company are young and mostly Cornish grads, and both times I’ve attended their performances, the audience has been small—between five and maybe a dozen people, most of whom seemed to be friends with the actors. That would be sad if the work was lame. But boom! produces work that is funny and rambunctious and energetic, so the small houses feel like the fledgling moments of something promising, something Seattle just hasn’t discovered yet.” Anna Minard, The Stranger

 Check out the schedule below and mark your calendars now! Find out more on our pages on Facebook and Google+ as well as our website at

Have a great day and I hope to see you all there. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, et cetera.
