About Second Thought Theatre

Founded in 2003 by Barbara Bouman, Lance Currie, Mike Schraeder, Steven Walters, and Tom Parr IV, Second Thought Theatre provides an intimate and unique theatrical experience by empowering top local artists to take risks, and by showcasing writers who boldly tackle the difficult and demanding questions of our rapidly changing world.

Attending a Second Thought Show

Second Thought’s Home: Bryant Hall

Second Thought Theatre stages the majority of its productions in Bryant Hall at the Kalita Humphreys Theater between Turtle Creek and the Katy Trail, just off Blackburn. Bryant Hall is a wonderful little black box theater perfect for Second Thought, next door to the Frank Lloyd Wright’s Kalita Humphreys Theater.

Talk Backs

After all performances (except for opening night), we hold a talkback between the audience and various members of the cast, artistic staff, and production team.  Each session is led by a STT member as a way to continue the conversation beyond what you’ve seen on stage.  Talkbacks usually last 10-20 minutes and help us create a growing dialogue between our artists and patrons about the immediate issues surrounding our community.  We would love to have you as part of the conversation!
