About Second Thought Theatre

Second Thought Theatre seeks to capture the moment of creation between artist and audience. Dedicated to ensemble productions that explore challenging and dramatic works from the canon of theatrical literature, STT strives to enlighten and entertain its audience by pushing the boundaries of human thought and emotion. Old works done in new ways, new works done in old ways. Everything is possible when you take a second thought.

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!
