The Second Street Players are proud to announce the 2019 Season. Next year SSP will showcase some classic stories along with some new shows that have not been performed in the area yet. There will be five Main Stage shows and three Children’s Theater shows. With this announcement the Second Street Players are also putting out a call to Directors. Anyone who is interested in directing one of the shows should submit a letter of intent by August 31, 2018. There will be no submissions accepted after the August 31st date. Interested in directing any of these shows? Please email a letter of intent to matjead@comcast.net. Please be advised that the first Main Stage and first Children’s Theater Shows may be performed at a different location due to a renovation project that will be bringing a better theater experience to the Riverfront Theater.

Main Stage:

To Kill A Mockingbird
adapted by Christopher Sergel from the book by Harper Lee
February 1,2,3,8,9 and 10
It’s 1935, and racial tensions are high in Maycomb, Alabama, Nonetheless, young Jean Louise Finch – or Scout, as she is fondly called- manages to live a rather carefree, privileged existence, insulated from issues of race. All that changes when Scout watches her father, Atticus Finch, defend an innocent man, Tom Robinson, against a potential death sentence, which looms threateningly against him because of prejudice due to race. Scout begins to realize that just because society portrays something as being true doesn’t mean that it actually is fact. With the help of Atticus, and her older brother Jem, Scout learns that “growing up” often means doing what is right, even when it comes at great cost. To Kill A Mockingbird is now considerd an American masterpiece about the power of childhood innocence, morality, and love. However, it is important to note that the author, Harper Lee always defined it as a simple love story.

Brighton Beach Memoirs
by Neil Simon
April 19,20,21,26,27, and 28
Here is part one of Neil Simon’s autobiographical trilogy: a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle class Brooklyn walk up. Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: a formidable mother, an overworked father, and his worldly older brother, Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters, and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states “if you didn’t have a problem, you wouldn’t be living here.”

Hairspray
Book by Thomas Meehan and Mark O’Donnell. Music By Marc Shaiman
July 19,20,21,26,27 and 28
The 1950s are out, and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical, piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. It's 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular "Corny Collins Show." When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network... all without denting her 'do!

Clue: On Stage
adapted by Jonathan Lynn, Hunter Foster, Eric Price & Sandy Rustin
September 12,13,14,20,21 and 22
It’s a dark and stormy night, and you’ve been invited to a very unusual dinner party. Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well...dead. So whodunit? Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacks up. Based on the cult classic film and the popular board game. Clue is a mad cap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist.

The Homecoming
adapted by Christopher Sergel from the book by Earl Hammer, Jr.
November 29, 30, December 1, 6, 7, and 8
Known on television as the Waltons, they’re called The Spencers in the original book, which is how they’re named here. The time is the Great Depression and the large Spencer Family, living at the foot of a Virginia mountain, is struggling hard just to survive. With his father having to take the only available job a long way from home, Clay-Boy is stuck with unusual responsibility for his brothers and sisters. Just reaching manhood, Clay-Boy has a secret yearning that’s quite extraordinary for the practical, earth-bound community in which he lives. He wants to write but his father tells him to prepare to become a responsible man--to build a home and raise a family. Clay-Boy could explode with frustration at his inability to communicate with this man that he admires most. He is also worried because his father is already long overdue in getting home. A gift reveals unexpected understanding and the strength of a loving family.

Children’s Theater:

The Hobbit
by Edward Mast
March 1,2,3
This one-hour version of Tolkien's classic novel is a suspenseful, fast-moving journey through the sometimes dark, sometimes charming, always compelling world of Middle Earth. Bilbo Baggins is a comfortably well-off hobbit with a love for rousing adventure stories. Real adventures, however, are definitely not his cup of tea. So when Gandalf the wizard knocks at Bilbo's door, bringing with him Thorin Oakenshield, eleven ragged looking dwarfs, and a contract for an adventure to recover the lost treasure of Lonely Mountain, Bilbo could not be less interested—at first. But Bilbo's love of a good story gets the better of him, and before he knows it, he is off on a perilous quest over mountain and under hill through caves and forest and slimy dark places.

Sally Cotter & The Censored Stone
by Dean O’Carroll
May 17,18,19
When Sally falls asleep while reading books about a certain juvenile wizard, she dreams that she is a student at Frogbull Academy of Sorcery. There she meets Headmaster Albatross Underdrawers, Gamekeeper Ruebenon Ryebread, and Professor Shiftia Shape. But danger is lurking, and it's up to Sally and her new friends Dave and Harmonica to defeat the schemes of the evil Lord Murderdeath. Will she become the hero like the one in her favorite series? And who is the mysterious Censor who keeps rewriting the story as it goes along? This loving parody will thrill fans and newcomers alike.

The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow
by Vera Morris
October 11,12,13
Adapted from Washington Irving, here is a spooky show alive with hilarious action and fun. It begins when Ichabod Crane, a lightly goofy schoolmaster, comes to the farming community of Sleepy Hollow with all his worldly possessions. He’s looking for a good life and a wealthy wife who will supply it. Once he sets eyes on the local beauty, Katrina Van Tassel, he’s sure his dream will come true. Unhappily for Ichabod, Katrina has a boyfriend who’s extremely jealous... the boisterous Brom Bones. To complicate matters the graveyard is haunted by a small army of restless spirits, including the most famous phantom of all, the Headless Horseman. At a party, Ichabod proposes marriage to Katrina, but is booted out by Brom and forced to make his way home through a terrible storm. In the dark, there’s something shadowy and towering intent on taking Ichabod’s life — the Headless Horseman!  Poor Ichabod has to outrun the galloping phantom!  Does he?
