Second Street Players is calling for potential directors for “Exit Laughing” and “An Evening of Culture: Faith County II” to submit applications by Sunday, Jan. 3.
With the success of its 2020 holiday show, which in addition to hosting small, live audiences, was streamed to over 100 online ticketholders across the country, SSP is confident it can provide a safe theater experience for limited audiences in accordance with current state guidelines. SSP will also continue to offer streamed performances of each show.
“Exit Laughing” from Dramatic Publishing tells the tale of friends who have enjoyed a weekly bridge night out together for 30 years. When one of the foursome inconveniently dies, the three remaining Southern ladies do the most daring thing they’ve ever done. They "borrow" the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game. The wildest, most exciting night of their lives involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun they can have. Performance dates are Friday to Sunday, Feb. 26 to 28, and March 5 to 7.
“An Evening of Culture: Faith County II” from Concord Theatricals is the long-awaited sequel to “Faith County.” This play is set in Mineola County again, where the community theatre group is producing “Romeo and Juliet.” Even though the cast members don't have their lines memorized, the set isn't finished, and a dog keeps barking offstage, they're gonna give it a go. Performance dates are Friday to Sunday, April 23 to 25, and April 30, May 1 and 2.
Individuals interested in directing one of the above shows should submit a letter of intent by Jan. 3 to Guy Crawford at email@example.com. To see specific requirements for director submissions, go to secondstreetplayers.com.
