Big Thinkers

Big Thinkers is a farsighted group of supporters who value smart theater and ensure STT’s ability to produce a classic play biennially.  Unfortunately, due to continued concerns about the spread of COVID-19 and restrictions on performances by the state and Actors Equity, we have decided to cancel our production of A Streetcar Named Desire. Our hearts are all heavy, as this is a play we deeply love and wanted to present to you. However, we cannot see a way forward that responsibly protects both the audience members and the actors involved in the production.

With this cancellation, we are evaluating how we honor your generosity to our Big Thinkers program previously attached to our production of Streetcar. Our conclusion is attaching all Big Thinkers benefits to the next production Second Thought Theatre produces.

We hope you will stick with us through this unpredictable season.  We look forward to getting back into the theatre and producing exceptional theatre as soon as it is possible and safe to do so. In the meantime, we will offer several exclusive virtual benefits to our Big Thinkers. We are exploring some exciting options to be hosted by our team this summer, so please keep an eye on your inboxes for more details.

Finally, words alone cannot express our gratitude for you, our generous donors. Because of you, Second Thought is able to look optimistically toward a future beyond this crisis. Thank you for your support of Big Thinkers and Second Thought Theatre.

We are now accepting online donations through our Square site.
