2nd Act

About 2nd Act

2nd Act’s Mission is simple: We change the way people and communities respond to the impact of substance use, through theatre and drama therapy.

2nd Act, Inc. (2A) is a newly merged organization (as of July 1, 2021) consisting of Improbable Players (IP) and Creating Outreach About Addiction Support Together (COAAST). Both organizations have been addressing substance use and the opioid epidemic, through theater performances and workshops, for over forty years combined. Each and everyone of 2nd Act’s actors have lived experience with substance use disorder, and all of our performances are based on true stories.

We envision a world in which all stories are honored and healing is inevitable.

Our story continues.

“The environment and who I worked with. Everyone was great at collaborating and getting everyone on board with a project. The projects that you work on will help a lot of students and it is truly good work. I learned a lot about how student theatre works, how to work with schools and talk with businesses, and researching into areas to help develop a small tour to bring the work to more areas. ”
