Grease sure has got a hold! The Outsiders will launch a North American tour in Fall 2025.

The Tony nominated musical, based on the novel by S.E. Hinton, will launch its tour at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, following tech rehearsals and previews at West Herr Auditorium Theatre in Rochester, New York.

“We could not imagine anywhere else to begin this next leg of The Outsiders journey than where it all began in Tulsa,” said producer Matthew Rego of The Araca Group in a statement. “S.E. Hinton’s novel has inspired generations and we’re thrilled for a new generation to experience the iconic story as we take The Outsiders across America.”

Additional cities, dates, and tour casting will be announced at a later date.

The Outsiders is currently nominated for 12 2024 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Book, Original Score, Direction, Choreography, Orchestrations, Scenic Design of a Musical, Lighting Design of a Musical, and Sound Design of a Musical, along with performance nods for Brody Grant, Sky Lakota-Lynch, and Joshua Boone.

Led by director Danya Taymor, and set in 1967 Tulsa, Oklahoma, The Outsiders follows Ponyboy Curtis, Johnny Cade, and their chosen family of "outsiders," who are in a fight for survival and a quest for purpose in a world that may never accept them. The musical opened on Broadway April 11 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. 

The Outsiders features a book by Adam Rapp with Justin Levine and music and lyrics by Jamestown Revival (Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance) and Levine. The production features music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Levine; choreography by Rick Kuperman and Jeff Kuperman; scenic design by AMP featuring Tatiana Kahvegian; costume design by Sarafina Bush; lighting design by Brian MacDevitt; sound design by Cody Spencer; and projection design by Hana Kim.
