Senior Theater Workshops

“ACTing Your Age” Senior Acting Workshops is a systematic and intentional use of Drama/Theater techniques, activities and exercises for ages 55 and up. This workshop aims to promote senior health by stimulating the memory, enhancing public speaking skills, building, heightening or restoring self-confidence, and strengthening social interactive skills.

Acting classes have been proven beneficial to the health of older adults as many acting techniques double as natural stress-relieving methods. Acting helps people express their emotions, does not require previous training, and increases social interactions. It is the perfect way for seniors to be social and get involved in their community, while stimulating their brain in the process. The sense of engagement and interaction can contribute to an improved mood and a positive outlook overall.

  • Build better and/or restore communication skills

  • Development and mastery of acting techniques
