GeriActors response to COVID-19

In light of COVID-19, the GeriActors Board of Directors has made the decision to postpone all programs including rehearsals and workshops until further notice.

Since our performance company, GeriActors & Friends, is unable to rehearse in person at this time, we have made the decision to reschedule our performance tour, which usually takes place in May and June, until the fall. We will be reaching out to organizations that have booked a performance this spring to discuss alternate dates.

Though we can’t meet in-person, the GeriActors & Friends cast are continuing to meet over video conference to read through scripts and continue developing our plays.

Staff is currently working from home, but still has access to our voicemail and email. Inquiries can be directed to Associate Director, Becca Barrington at: 780-248-1556 or geriactors.friends@gmail.com.

We will continue to monitor the guidelines provided by Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Deena Hinshaw and resume programs when it is safe to do so.

For more info on operations and closures, services for seniors, and activities to do from home, the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council has created a resource page on their website. They will continue to update it as new information is made available.
