The Pines Dinner Theatre, 448 N. 17th St., Allentown, will be presenting “Second Chances: The Thrift Shop Musical.” The show opens Friday and runs through May 12.

You don’t want to miss this touching and inspirational new musical comedy about the quirky characters who run The Second Chances Thrift Shop. You’ll meet the hilarious lead clerk Wally (played by Dan Cake) who always brings sunshine to the day with humor, Joe (played by Don Hart) and Janet (played by Amy Shea) who work in the collection area and discover that you can find love later in life; the young mother and new shop manager Allison (played by Marissa Parrott) trying to start over and more!

When the thrift shop is threatened to be sold by the greedy landlord, the team won’t stand for it. Spend a year with the lovable, yet quirky, group and see how they band together to save the shop and discover it’s not just old treasures that get a second chance.

The Pines is thrilled to be one of the first theaters to bring “Second Chances” to the stage. The play was conceived and written by Tom Ross Prather with music and lyrics by Christopher Russell and Megan Russell with additional material by Victor Legarreta.

This tune-filled score boasts both well known favorites; “You’re A Grand Old Flag,” “O Holy Night,” “Jingle Bells,” as well as original compositions such as “One Man’s Trash” and “Rise Back Up.”

Matinee performances (12:30 p.m. dinner, 2 p.m. show) are Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays; evening performances (6:30 p.m. dinner, 8 p.m. show) are Fridays and Saturdays.
