Second Street Players presents its first production in compliance with the current pandemic restrictions: A Nice Family Christmas, by Phil Olson.

It’s Christmas Eve, and a young newspaper reporter (played by David MacDonald) on the brink of being fired has been assigned a last-chance story about a typical family Christmas – his family’s Christmas. He goes home to his recently widowed mother (Melissa Brenner), his crazy uncle (Steven Perry), his eccentric grandmother (Gina Shuck), and his battling siblings (José Bernard and Melissa Brown) and his brother’s neurotic spouse (Bella Ruiz), who provide no shortage of material.

One by one, we learn each family member’s secrets, problems, and dysfunctions, and when they learn that he’s writing an article with some very personal family information, the fruitcake hits the fan. The question is, will the magic of Christmas bring this family back together?

COVID-19 precautions for this show...

Co-Directors Melissa Brenner and Steven Haber agree, that “this show is so easily adapted to our current pandemic situation. Without changing the author’s script, we are performing with every cast member using masks and hand sanitizer on stage!

Please keep in mind that in spite of the show title, A Nice Family Christmas has some adult themes and might not be suitable for the younger members of your nice family. (Please email with any questions about this.)

We are following current state COVID-19 guidelines and all patrons will need to be wearing a mask before entering the theater. We are also limiting the number of seats sold to 25, so we recommend getting tickets early if you want to see the show live. Tickets are all “General Admission”; to facilitate state guidelines, ushers will seat each party to maintain social distancing.
