Second Stage Productions
The brain child of Jeremy Littlejohn, the Second Stage first opened its doors in 2004. The Second Stage is located in the Locke Township Meeting House down the hall from The Round Barn Theatre. The vision of the Second Stage is to bring theatrical works to the Round Barn audience in an intimate environment, stripped down to the essentials, in order to focus on the acting and writing of each author's work. In 2008 the Second Stage produced Thorton Wilder's Our Town as the first ever play on The Joseph Stein Stage. 2009 became a banner year for the Second Stage when Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park became the first play to be incorporated as part of the Round Barn Theatre's main stage season. In addition to its work in the Locke the Second Stage has produced notable Staged Readings of Take Me Along, Anne of Green Gables, The Spitfire Grill, Rags, Floyd Collins, Carmelina, 39 Steps and The Round Barn's yearly Theater for Young Audience program. These costumed readings were performed on The Joseph Stein Stage and featured a full cast of actors and orchestra.
