For seven years, a certain boy wizard went to a certain wizard school and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs…who just happened to be there too. Puffs; or, Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic is a tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world. This clever and inventive play gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers. Their epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.

Show Synopsis
The players at The Murder Mystery Playhouse are rehearsing a new show, Putting a Little English on It.  It’s a not-so-good attempt at a British murder mystery, complete with cheesy dramatic music and British accents.  As expected at the final dress rehearsal, the lights go out and a character dies onstage — only this murder wasn’t in the script!  The authorities are quickly called, and soon the company finds themselves replaying the death scene.  When yet another person dies at the end of the same scene, the cast finds themselves replaying the same scene over and over for other investigators, a theatre critic, and even the playwright himself!  But every time they get to the end of the scene, someone else ends up with a fire poker in the chest.  The actors are left scratching their heads at the strange circumstances and also worried that they could be next.  It all culminates in a wild surprise ending in which the actors must work together to defeat the murderer before he murders them all.
Rehearsal schedule:.
Sept 11- Read Through
Mondays and Wednesdays
4:30-6:00 pm
Performances are Nov 10-12
Public Ticket Sales will open in late October!

Sometimes what happens after last call just might change your life. One night in 1981, just as Jamie is closing the bar where he works, a desperate last-minute customer offers him and his girlfriend Abby two thousand dollars to sit and have a drink with him. Who wouldn’t take it? As the trio swaps stories and Jamie considers the decisions he faces about his musical career and his future with his girlfriend Abby. the young couple begins to realize that this older man is unusually invested in their choices… and the reason he gives them is completely unbelievable. But when a very displeased second stranger arrives, the unbelievable begins to look like it just might be true. Now and Then is a heartfelt romantic comedy about the costs of the choices we make, and the people who make them with us.

Improv Carol Returns!!

Second Act Productions  had a soft opening with The Play That Goes Wrong in February!  Despite its limited run, the cast and crew gave an incredible show!  We are looking forward to offering more comedy to the Staone Oak Community in the years to come!

 

From Mischief, Broadway masters of comedy, comes the smash hit farce. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley University Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a show—an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences! Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!

The Unbreakable Timmy Cratchit

Tickets available now!!

 

Tickets are now on sale!!!  The Unbreakable Timmy Cratchit! There are people who are excited about Christmas, and then there’s Tiny Tim Cratchit – he’s never met a seasonal sweater he didn’t love. When he discovers his overworked parents could use some extra cheer this year, the oddball optimist drafts his skeptical sister Belinda into a last-minute quest to make enough money to buy the perfect gifts. The entitled customers, pushy elves, and ruthless carolers shopping on Christmas Eve are enough to test the most festive soul, but generosity comes from unlikely places in this galloping, joyful reversal of A Christmas Carol.

Spring 2022 Production…

The Music Man Kids!

 

The Music Man Kids!!

Second Act took their show on the road and performing The Music man Kids LIVE at the Las Lomas Spring Dinner and Dance on April 29th.

 

When smooth-talking con man Harold Hill arrives in a small, tight-knit town in Iowa, he expects to dupe its residents with his elaborate money making scheme: Despite his complete lack of musical literacy, he will convince everyone that he is a brilliant bandleader and recruit all the boys in town to form a band, pocketing the cash for instruments and uniforms. The problem? Some of the town members, especially the stern librarian, Marian Paroo, don’t quite buy Harold’s story. As Harold struggles to keep his scheme afloat, he also finds himself increasingly attached to the townspeople, who have all experienced a positive change since Harold came to town.  As All-American as apple pie and as charming as can be, The Music Man Kids was a crowd-pleasing success!

Performances June 19-21, 2020

Second Act Productions  is excited to announce the cast for its its next production, The Play That Goes Wrong!

 

From Mischief, Broadway masters of comedy, comes the smash hit farce. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley University Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a show—an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences! Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!

The Play That Goes Wrong!!

Announcing the cast list for Spamalot, Young @Part!!

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this adaptation of MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight casts and audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”

 

This show is open to performers in grades 3-8!

 

 

Performances have been rescheduled to March 24-26, 2023.  Ticket info will be announced in early March 2023.

Tickets are now on sale!!!  The Unbreakable Timmy Cratchit! There are people who are excited about Christmas, and then there’s Tiny Tim Cratchit – he’s never met a seasonal sweater he didn’t love. When he discovers his overworked parents could use some extra cheer this year, the oddball optimist drafts his skeptical sister Belinda into a last-minute quest to make enough money to buy the perfect gifts. The entitled customers, pushy elves, and ruthless carolers shopping on Christmas Eve are enough to test the most festive soul, but generosity comes from unlikely places in this galloping, joyful reversal of A Christmas Carol.

Spring 2022 Production…

The Music Man Kids!

 

The Music Man Kids!!

Second Act took their show on the road and performing The Music man Kids LIVE at the Las Lomas Spring Dinner and Dance on April 29th.

 

When smooth-talking con man Harold Hill arrives in a small, tight-knit town in Iowa, he expects to dupe its residents with his elaborate money making scheme: Despite his complete lack of musical literacy, he will convince everyone that he is a brilliant bandleader and recruit all the boys in town to form a band, pocketing the cash for instruments and uniforms. The problem? Some of the town members, especially the stern librarian, Marian Paroo, don’t quite buy Harold’s story. As Harold struggles to keep his scheme afloat, he also finds himself increasingly attached to the townspeople, who have all experienced a positive change since Harold came to town.  As All-American as apple pie and as charming as can be, The Music Man Kids was a crowd-pleasing success!

Spring 2022 Production…

The Music Man Kids!

 

The Music Man Kids!!

Second Act took their show on the road and performing The Music man Kids LIVE at the Las Lomas Spring Dinner and Dance on April 29th.

 

When smooth-talking con man Harold Hill arrives in a small, tight-knit town in Iowa, he expects to dupe its residents with his elaborate money making scheme: Despite his complete lack of musical literacy, he will convince everyone that he is a brilliant bandleader and recruit all the boys in town to form a band, pocketing the cash for instruments and uniforms. The problem? Some of the town members, especially the stern librarian, Marian Paroo, don’t quite buy Harold’s story. As Harold struggles to keep his scheme afloat, he also finds himself increasingly attached to the townspeople, who have all experienced a positive change since Harold came to town.  As All-American as apple pie and as charming as can be, The Music Man Kids was a crowd-pleasing success!

Based on your suggestions, our improvisers retold Dickens’ tale of Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and of course, Tiny Tim in all sorts of hilarious ways. Each night, a new version of this old favorite, combined this historic work with audience suggestions into a holiday improvised show.
