2ND ACT Series to resume in March 2021! The Palace Theater is Covid-certified for reopening while adhering to the current crowd size gathering mandates and safety protocols of Connecticut.
Featuring life stories by people of a certain age, 2ND ACT launched in September 2018 to critical and patron acclaim. 2ND ACT is a monthly storytelling series featuring ordinary people sharing the extraordinary things they are doing in the 2ND (half) ACT of their lives.
Inspirational, experiential and comical, these after-50 life stories will ignite your own imagination to join the growing community of 2ND ACTers! Stories are 45–60 minutes in length followed by Q&A with the audience.
Join us for stories by ordinary people doing extraordinary things that will inspire YOU to write your own 2ND ACT!
