Intergenerational Theatre Program

The Problem

This program started in October 2006. When it first started it was a group of college students going over to an independent living facility to play theatre games. In the second semester we worked together and wrote a play comparing life in an independent living facility to life on a college campus. At that performance we had a cast of 17, and an audience of over 100. This year we will be continuing to do the same, but we will be trying to make it bigger and better. We will be putting on two plays this year, one that we will be writing, and most probobly "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder. The idea is that everyone is able to participate in theatre if they would like to. In both productions, all memebers of the cast and crew are part of the workshop and will be intergenerational.
