2nd Star Productions presents two musicals and one comedy each season at Bowie Playhouse, 16500 White Marsh Park Drive, in Bowie Maryland, 20715.

2nd Star Productions was founded in January 1996 by Jane Wingard, John Guyton, Gordon Gustin, Joanne Wilson, and Martin Hayes - a theatrically experienced group who decided to "make their own rules for the sandbox". In addition to producing high quality shows, they wanted to create an atmosphere where people can grow, have fun and feel that their contributions were highly valued.
