This is designed to engage their experience and enthusiasm celebrate their talents and also challenge the stigmas of being older. A creative and enlightening chance to engage in one-off monthly drama sessions inspired by productions on one of our three stages. The focus is on having fun while at the same tie exploring the skills and techniques of the performer, and spending time with likeminded people.
