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 and Carmelina, 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.

The Dixie Swim Club
Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends, and spans a period of thirty-three years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another through advice and raucus repartee to get through the challenges that life flings at them. More...

Book & Lyrics by Joe DiPietro

This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as 'the relationship.' Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?'
