This weekend will be the final two performances of New Year’s Eve at Grandma’s House by the 2nd Act Players at Northminster Church, Evanston. Audiences so far have loved it, with 85% saying they’d recommend it to a friend.
We’re hoping to see some of those friends at this weekends shows, Saturday at 7 and Sunday at 3 p.m.
The joy of doing a play like this is seeing our actors transform words on paper into living characters on-stage.This is no longer just a bunch of actors coming together in a church basement. It is the Smaldone Family, circa 1960, trying to figure out what it means to be American.
The sadness of doing a play like this is that it must come to an end,and it must come to an end with so many people I’d hoped would come to see it not seeing it.
This year, the 2nd Act Players did its first integrated ad campaign, advertising on radio, in print and on the main Evanston CTA station. The results were negligible. One only person who has seen a show told us he came because of seeing our ads.
So we rely on friends to come see it, to support local theater. Two shows left this weekend, please come see the magic that unfolds on our stage.For tickets click here.
