Big Thinkers

Big Thinkers is a farsighted group of supporters who value smart theater and ensure STT’s ability to add a dynamic fourth production to the season. For 2018 that fourth production is also a world premiere. Enemies/People is inspired by and adapted freely from An Enemy of the People by Henrik Ibsen.  Set in Marfa, Texas in contemporary times, Enemies/People by Blake Hackler premieres June 15, 2018.

You are invited to Think Big!

Be part of TheaterJones 2017 Theater of the Year:

“Not only did Second Thought Theatre begin its path toward an Actors Equity Association Small Professional Theatre, pay was upped for artists and they delivered three strong productions in Grounded, Straight White Men, and The Necessities.  Best batting average of the year.  Next year, STT is moving back to four productions.  

More STT is something to be excited about.”
