ACT NOW | REGISTER FOR CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

Our theatre classes and workshops are a great way to get creative, meet new people, share stories, and laugh! GeriActors combines playfulness with technique to create unique and fun theatre programs for ages 55+. All our programs are facilitated by local theatre artists ready to share their “theatre know-how”. Whether you have a history in the theatre, have always dreamt of performing, or just want to try something new, this is the perfect place to start.

We believe in playful theatre and creative aging where theatre games, laughter and fun result in a great deal of learning and wonderful theatre.
