Northminster Presbyterian Church in Evanston has agreed to allow the 2nd Act Players to produce its new season in the church theater, marking the third year the 2nd Act Players will be staging plays at the church in northwest Evanston.
“We are so thrilled to call Northminster home for our 2018 season,” says 2nd Act Cofounder John N. Frank. “Having a theater of our own has allowed us to expand the number and types of shows we do. Our immense thanks to everyone at Northminster.”
Since moving into Northminster in 2016, the 2nd Act Players have staged The Institute, a two-act play about the Vietnam War era; Moving Boxes, a family drama set against the tragedy of 9/11, its One-Act Play Festival featuring two new playwrights; and a New Playwrights’ Showcase featuring staged readings of six new short plays.
“When we moved in, we made some basic improvements in the theater space,” notes Frank. “One of our goals this year is to secure grant money to help further upgrade the lighting system for future plays and other events held there.”
The 2nd Act Players will be announcing full details of its 2018 season shortly but currently is accepting entries for its 2018 #MeTooPlayFestival.
