A Christmas Carol is a spectacular adaptation of Charles Dickens' most well-known story.

Auditions Cancelled

The Board of Directors of 2nd Star Productions regrets to report that, due to rights complications that arose this week, our company will no longer be producing a production of Barefoot in the Park in February 2020.

We are working on deciding what we will be doing instead in that time slot, and will follow up with season subscribers regarding next steps in the near future. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support!
