SECOND STREET PLAYERS SEEKS DIRECTORS FOR ITS 2018 SEASON OF SHOWS

The Second Street Players of Milford Delaware have announced their 2018 season. We will be taking all serious inquiries for Directors up to September 24th. Anyone interested in directing any of the five Main Stage Shows or three Children’s Theater shows should submit a letter of interest to Joshua Gross at jgross@atlanticrhc.com

The 2018 Main Stage Season is:

The 39 Steps: Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This 2-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance! In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called The 39 Steps is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!

The Elephant Man: The Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man – victim of rare skin and bone diseases – he becomes the star freak attraction in traveling sideshows. Found abandoned and helpless, he is admitted to London’s prestigious Whitechapel Hospital. Under the care of celebrated young physician Frederick Treves, Merrick is introduced to London society and slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati, only to be denied his ultimate dream – to become a man like any other.

Shrek The Musical: Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears. "Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek. Shrek presents a treasure trove of creative opportunities, including costumes, sets, puppets (there is a fire-breathing dragon after all) and more! Irreverently fun for the whole family, Shrek the Musical proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.

Night of The Living Dead: Six strangers, a lonely farmhouse, surrounded by brain-eating zombies - what could go wrong? Night of the Living Dead is a fun and hilarious re-imagining of George A. Romero’s legendary classic. Set in 1968 and presented in all black and white, it literally feels like the film has been brought to life and placed on stage. The play lovingly examines the movie itself, the period in which it was made, and the film’s undying influence on the horror genre.  Night of the Living Dead, the film, was produced at a time of incredible social and political upheaval, the film was met with controversy for featuring an African American protagonist and realistic horror images; and yet, possibly the most controversial element to Night Of The Living Dead was the ending... Everybody dies! Even the hero doesn’t survive.  More than just a recreation of the story, the play celebrates the history and influence of the movie. Through a series of multiple endings, the characters are all faced with different issues and challenges while desperately trying to survive the night. However, their contrasting personalities and agendas always seem to prevent the group from working together. Which leaves us all wondering, could anyone survive a night of the living dead?

Miracle on 34th Street: "This is a tale that we want to believe in, that creates a world we seem to desperately desire, free of the blatant commercialism that surrounds us, where love and decency and generosity of spirit are their own rewards. What we want Christmas to be all about, really." So writes the Santa Cruz Sentinel of this most heartwarming holiday story. By chance, Kris Kringle, an old man in a retirement home, gets a job working as Santa for Macy's. Kris unleashes waves of good will with Macy's customers and the commercial world of New York City by referring parents to other stores to find exactly the toy their child has asked for. Seen as deluded and dangerous by Macy's vocational counselor, who plots to have Kris shanghaied to Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital, Kris ends up in a court competency hearing. Especially at stake is one little girl's belief in Santa. In a dramatic decision, the court confirms Kris as the true Santa, allowing Susan and countless other children to experience the joy of childhood fantasy.


2018 Children’s Theater 10th Season Anniversary

The Elves and the Shoemaker: Relocated to an American city in the early 20th Century, this classic tale is turned into a jazzy, vaudevillian romp. The devious millionaire head of ShoeBucks attempts to take over the last old-fashioned shoe store in town, run by Avner and his son Izzy. But Izzy calls on reinforcements in the form of zany and magical elves to save the family business. Will they succeed, or will the bad guy gain control of not only the store, but the elves as well?

The Frog Prince: The author turns his considerable talents to the age old children's story of the prince who is turned into a frog and must find a pure and honest woman to kiss him of her own free will. The old tale is given a decidedly contemporary sensibility that appeals to adults as well as to children.

Rumpelstiltskin: Once upon a time there was a dwarf named Rumples... wait, you probably know that part already. This reimagining of the classic fairy tale features two strong-willed sisters: Anya, shy and romantic, and Ingrid, outspoken and sensible. When their widowed mother is once again victim to the judgments of others, she tells a tiny lie -- Anya can turn straw into gold. Soon, the story "spins" out of control when the King believes Anya is the reason their nation is out of money and demands she perform her special skill for the royal coffers. Mix in magical companions, mistaken identities, a short villain, and princess wannabes -- is this a recipe for disaster? Or happily ever after?

We will be taking all serious inquiries for directors up to September 24th. Anyone interested in directing any of the five Main Stage Shows or three Children’s Theater shows should submit a letter of interest to Joshua Gross at jgross@atlanticrhc.com
