birmingham-nou-pictureWhen Alabama fans arrive (and I don’t mean just the SEC, people!) it’s literally a game changer!  That’s right.  Signs, cheers, and pom-poms and the sounds of an incredible spirited crowd filled the air of the Dorothy Jemison Day Theater at the Alabama School of Fine Arts as My 2nd Act: Survivor Stories from the Stage took the stage for its second year. Performing to a packed house, the Birmingham 2nd Act gals took to the stage as the stage show took inspiration to another level.

Performing to a packed house, the Birmingham 2nd Act gals took to the stage as the stage show took inspiration to another level. Extended backstories, backstage snippets and a weekend town tour by the cast shared the weekend production, while a vendor expo in the lobby the day of the event added to the live event.

“Describing the emotion and energy of the performance is almost too hard to put into words,” stated Birmingham Producer Scarlett Bradford.  “Birmingham was blessed to see this theater come alive with survivors of all ages, stages, and all cancers.  This town certainly the KNEW the stage show had arrived. I can’t wait for next year!”

The event was sponsored by Cancer Treatment Centers of America with supporting sponsorship from Ignyta and The Survivor Collection.  The WSA is grateful to all our supporters in helping us bring this amazing show to town and we thank them for their continued support.

The 90-minute special featuring the Birmingham cast will be aired on New Focus Network early in 2017.  Wasn’t there?  That’s OK!  Don’t miss this incredible performance. NFN will be found on Roku, IOS, Google TV and will soon be on Apple TV and Amazon Fire.
