2016 — Remembrance, and a lot more

The 2nd Act Players is kicking off 2016 with its co-production of ArLynn Leiber Presser’s Remembrance the weekend of Jan. 29-31.

Remembrance is a touching look at how we remember those we have lost and how love transcends the bounds which hold us on this earth.

The play features new cast members, new characters, and a new ending from the last time it was performed in April, 2015 in Winnetka. So even those who have seen it should come to see it again.REmembrance

Remembrance is just the start of what the 2nd Act Players have planned in 2016. 2nd Act co-founder John N. Frank already is working on his new play, The Institute, which looks at a group of men who went to military school during the height of the Vietnam War.

The coming of age saga looks at the war from these young men’s perspectives while also examining the trials and tribulations that bound them together as friends. Watch for more information about its opening in November 2016.

Also, watch for the announcement of our first one-act play script competition. The 2nd Act Players will be soliciting new one-act play scripts that deal with 2nd acts in people’s lives.

Two winning scripts will be performed in early 2017 by the 2nd Act Players. Details for this competition should be posted here by early February, so check back for details.

The 2nd Act Improv wing also will be holding more fund-raising shows throughout the year.

We have more going on behind the scenes as well, this will be an amazing year for the 2nd Act Players. You can help us achieve our goals for the year by becoming a supporter of the 2nd Act Players, simply click here to make your tax-deductible donation.
