The Story:

"The Lost World" tells the tale of a 20-Year High School Reunion attended by only six people. This is not just any six people – these are six individuals who claim to have hated High School the most. Brought together 20 years later by a common friend, the six former classmates find themselves face-to-face in a discount hotel ballroom for one fateful night of laughs, fights, tears, and soul-searching; as they drag their skeletons to the light in a bid to exorcise the personal demons that have haunted them since they last patrolled those hallowed halls of High School. Children of the Eighties now all grown up; they’re ‘The Breakfast Club’ thrust into the Facebook generation – leading them to pine for a simpler time; an age where if you wanted to connect with someone; you reached out and touched them; not texted, tweeted or Skyped. Their world is truly “The Lost World”.

PARKING: Please enter via the main door which is located around the corner on Park Street. Parking is available either behind the Town Hall or on the street.


Gateway to the Future Fund

This fund has been established to cover all costs associated with finding a new performance space in Southbridge. We are currently exploring a few different options, and we are anticipating this could take at least two years to find and renovate a new permanent home. We expect the cost to do this could be upwards of $500,000. In the next year we will be holding several fundraisers, reaching out to local businesses in the area, and applying for grants. You can also donate directly on our Facebook Page. Login to your FB account, go to to FB/GatewayPlayers and The "Donate" button is located on the right, below the cover photo. All donations are tax deductible. We thank you very much for your continued support of Gateway Players Theatre.
