For National Stage Show Production and Television Show

Memphis, TN – Television Network Producers are looking for WOMEN CANCER SURVIVORS TO AUDITION and share their stories of their life after the diagnosis as the empowering and highly entertaining My 2nd Act: Survivor Stories from the Stage will make its 1st national tour stop in Memphis. Auditions will be held at the Rock Church on Saturday, February 11th and March 5th.

My 2nd Act is a professionally produced stage show, presented live in theaters across the country and brought to you by the Women Survivors Alliance of Nashville.  The shows feature a cast of local women on stage revealing their own personal experiences of surviving cancer.  Their dramatic essays unravel the truth about perseverance in the face of uncertainty as they enter their 2nd Act of life–survivorship.  The result is a raw and honest exposé that not only empowers those on stage, but also inspires those witnessing.  It’s an amazing evening of emotions as it celebrates both the survivors and non-survivors in the audience. In turn, the members of the audience are motivated to create their own 2nd Acts, inspiring others, regardless of the challenges they face in life. And long after the stage lights have gone dark, this inspiration and joy has a lasting effect.

As a newly featured television series of New Focus Network, a new Smart TV platform launched in January 2017, My 2nd Act will now follow the path of the current mainstream productions, as we film the audition process in each city where survivors share their amazing stories, with the hopes of being chosen for the theatrical presentation.  Well-produced backstories of inspiring participants will be created as we follow these courageous women through the process and into the spotlight.  The stage show itself will have a more intimate connection to its cast and cameras back stage will capture the jitters and butterflies as the women step out onto the stage.  This new approach will reflect the energy and vitality of the brave women who bare their stories to a worldwide audience.
