Theatre for senior adults
Senior adults are a rich resource for any community. Applied theatre programs are designed to enrich their lives in community, with each other and with the community at large. Theatre is a proven method for stimulating brain health among seniors. These programs encourage creative expression, spontaneity, collaboration and a healthy dose of fun!
