Live Theater Keeps You Young!

Aberdeen Community Theatre celebrates older performers with its newest programming, Senior Theatre. Plans are currently being made to launch into this exciting avenue.

Senior Theatre is one of the fastest growing forms of the performing arts in the country.

The most popular form is readers’ theatre or script-in-hand performances. This “less threatening” technique helps participants leap over the memorization hurdle so more performers can be on stage with confidence.

Also popular is creating theater to educate audiences about issues such as aging awareness, fall prevention and a wide assortment of disease related concerns.

If you would like more information about this programming or would like to be added to ACT’s email and mailing list, please or call ACT’s office at (605) 225-2228.
