Milford’s Second Street Players’ 2013 season of shows promises something for everyone — a drama-comedy, a musical comedy revue, a an out-and-out comedy, an edge-of-the seat mystery and a family classic for the holidays.
All shows are presented at Riverfront Theatre, 2 S. Walnut St.
The small-town drama comedy-drama “Steel Magnolias,” by Robert Harling, opens Second Street’s 34th season on Friday, Jan. 25.
“Nunsensations — The Nunsense Vegas Revue,” written by “Nunsense” creator Don Goggin, will be performed starting April 26. When a parishioner volunteers to donate $10,000 to the sisters’ school if they will perform in a club in Las Vegas, Mother Superior is hesitant to accept. But after being convinced by the other sisters that “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” Reverend Mother agrees.
“Any Body Home?,” a comedy “whodunit” by Carl Ritchie and Elise Dewsberry, will be presented starting July 12.
“Rehearsal For Murder” a thriller, adapted for the stage by D.D. Brooke from the television play by Richard Levinson and William Link, promises twists at every turn. That show starts Sept. 27.
The Lewis Carroll classic “Alice in Wonderland” closes Second Street’s 2013 season with performances starting Nov. 29.
