Hinton was only 18 when her book was published, yet she understood and wrote about class conflict, prejudice, stereotyping, and violence.  I hope the show has as much meaning to the audience as it does for me.

Jonah has made a lot of close friends and had many great experiences through theatre. He hopes to maybe dabble in professional acting one day. Because of his cold and mean personality, he was cast as the character of Bob, one of the Socs (Villains), in The Outsiders.  He hopes you’ll enjoy the show!
