Out of My Comfort Zone will return to the UK for the third time when the show will be produced and performed by TheatreTrain in Southampton, UK, at The Nuffield City Studio Centre on May 30 & 31, 2020.
Following sold-out performances in March 2018 at The Redbridge Drama Centre, Out of My Comfort Zone returned to London in October 2018, to The Redbridge Drama Centre, and to King William's College on the Isle of Man, UK.
In addition to being featured on the front page of Playbill.com during Pride Month, The Huffington Post praised the show, calling it, "A singing, dancing powerhouse punctuated by dialogue that feels true and real. The songs are completely infectious and fun, ranging in genre from rock and roll to hip hop."
TheaterScene.net said, “With an empathic message, fun soundtrack, and an enthusiastic cast, Out of My Comfort Zone hopes to further a worldwide social cause."
Theater Development Fund noted that, "People like avoiding conflict. They don't want to stand out too much, so they play it safe. Out of My Comfort Zone challenges this concept, promoting self-confidence and loving unashamedly."
“We were driven to write Out of My Comfort Zone as a way of making a strong statement against bullying, specifically bullying that targets any child or teen who may be perceived as gay or identify as LGBTQ,” states Ivy Vale, playwright. “There is clearly a need for reality-based material for teens who want to see shows that reflect their own lives and deliver characters they can relate to.”
The next live performances of Out of My Comfort Zone will be produced and performed by TheatreTrain Southampton and take place on May 30 & 31, 2020, at The Nuffield City Studio Theatre in Southampton, UK. Tickets are not yet available.
