Senior Troupe of Lifelong
Who We Are

The Senior Troupe of Lifelong (www.tclifelong.org) has been performing for more than fifteen years. We perform stories from our lives, developed through improvisational theatre workshops held at Lifelong.

The theatre we perform is without sets, lights and props. The plays and vignettes are developed through improvisational exercises that explore themes important to seniors. From these exercises, we develop the vignettes and plays that although rehearsed, still have an element of improvisation. The players are the characters, the scenery and the props. The troupe has performed for large and small audiences at senior centers, nursing homes, and other nonprofit agencies.

The director and members of the troupe range in age from the 60’s to the 90’s. We have developed a new form of theatre that can accommodate the various ages and physical stamina of the actors. This theatre, which we are calling “choral theatre” uses themes that the actors pick and then develop into stories from their lives that reflect this theme. Past themes have been about clothing, travel, animals, winter, and women in our lives.
