Second Thought Theatre will hold it’s 8th Annual Second Thought State of Mind on Thursday, February 10 at On the Levee in the Dallas Design. Guests are invited to an evening of fun, fundraising, and live musical entertainment by Terry D. Loftis.

Following two years of virtual events, State of Mind 2022 will be the first in-person Second Thought Theatre gala held since 2019.

“We are so happy to be back in person this year, both in the theater and for State of Mind,” said Carol March, State of Mind 2022 event chair. “Our generous patrons and donors have made it all possible, with their steadfast support of the unique theatrical experience that STT produces and their belief in providing theatre professionals with equitable working opportunities. Our State of Mind fundraiser is key in providing the funds to grow and support STT and all the
talented people who make the magic happen.”

State of Mind 2022 begins with cocktails and festive fare at 7:00 p.m., followed by cabaret entertainment provided by Terry D. Loftis. Justin Locklear will emcee and lead a “Fund the Mission” live auction and raffle drawing, with proceeds directly supporting Second Thought Theatre’s 2022 season. Cocktails and mingling with Second Thought artists and supporters will finish the evening.

In addition to the festivities, details about the 2022 theater season will be revealed. “My intention with this season is to examine disparity,” said Carson McCain, Second Thought Theatre artistic director. “I’m interested in not only the wealth and economic disparity we’ve seen highlighted by the COVID pandemic, but also how these discrepancies hold hands with racial and gender disparities. It is my hope that each of these shows investigates and interrogates how we might all be complicit in perpetuating disparity across the board.”

Sponsorship options for State of Mind 2022 can be purchased online here – including a new level to sponsor local theater artists to attend the vevent. Guests can also contribute to “Fund the Mission” prior to the event – sponsorship levels and benefits are available online. Each package includes entry to the event, drinks, and light hors d’oeuvres.
