Living Playfully: Theatre for Elders

About Drama Therapy

Drama Therapy is the systematic and intentional use of dramatic techniques by a trained professional to aid individuals in personal growth and increase emotional well being.

Radio Drama Class

Radio Drama frees the performers and the audience from the physical limitations of conventional theatre---no elaborate sets, no make up (unless you insist), no costumes, no props and no memorizing. Only a script is needed, from which we read aloud. Using our voices as our primary tool, we interpret the emotions, beliefs, and attitudes of the written material, making it come alive and letting the imagination soar.

Theatre Games

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

— Albert Einstein

Improvisation and Theatre Games

Theatre Games and Improvisation is designed to give seniors the opportunity to engage in creative group activity in the expressive environment that is safe, fun and dynamic. The goal is to have fun through the use of spontaneous group games. Improvisation combines the excitement of spontaneous activity within the structure and stability of dramatic frameworks.

Beginning Readers Theatre

What is Reader's Theatre?

Like storytelling, Reader's Theatre can create images by suggestion that can be just as persuasive and powerful as works portrayed on the stage. Reader's Theatre frees the performers and the audience from the physical limitations of conventional theatre---no sets, no make up (unless you insist), no costumes, no props and no memorizing. Only a script is needed, from which we read aloud. Using our voices as our primary tool, we interpret the emotions, beliefs, and attitudes of the written material, making it come alive and letting the imagination soar.

Play Production

Through stage productions for seniors we create a sense of purpose through a collaborative experience that builds upon group cohesion and trust. Dramatic and written activities allow the participants to gain access to positive aspects of their present lives.
