Stage 2 Series productions are produced by Theatre Macon, but directed by community members. These four productions offer the opportunity for many different types of performance art to be featured at Theatre Macon to include (but not limited to) staged readings, musical reviews, small plays or musicals, and a variety of other outlets which encourage members of our community to work together to create exciting, thought-provoking theatrical works of art.

Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind

October 22 - 25, 2020

Auditions: August 30 & 31 at 7:00pm

By Greg Allen

Having opened in 1988 and still playing today as the longest-running show in Chicago history. Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind is an ensemble experiment in presenting “30 Plays in 60 Minutes.” Each two-minute play is performed in random order with an interactive audience. An onstage 60-minute times keeps everyone honest. This collection of comic, tragic, political, personal, and abstract plays gives performers the chance to program their own production of plays to reflect life, while giving the audience the chance to get involved in the fun. On your mark...get set...Go!

Ain't Misbehavin'

January 21 - 24, 2021

Auditions: TBA

Music by Thomas Fats Waller
Conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Murray Horwitz

The inimitable Thomas "Fats" Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club and that jumpin' new beat, swing music. Although not quite a biography, Ain't Misbehavin' evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs that he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley. The intoxicating music of Fats Waller will delight and energize audiences as well as provide great insight into a vibrant time in American history and music.

Directed by Charles Davis

Royal Gambit

June 3 - 6, 2021

Auditions: May 2 & 3 at 7:00pm

By Hermann Gressieker & George White

This metaphysical portrait of Henry VIII and the six women in his life contrasts this king, the epitome of Renaissance man, with modern liberal thought and concludes that humanism is dead in the twentieth century. Henry remains the same throughout but the women progress in their dress to modern times, showing their knowledge of the lasting effects of Henry's thoughts.
