Meet our performance company, the GeriActors & Friends!

Using a playful approach to theatre we produce original plays based on true stories and issues of aging. We write plays by playing games, telling stories, improvising, and taking elegant coffee breaks with free flowing discussion. As we rehearse and perform, we continually rewrite our scripts. Humour and music are central to our work; laughter makes accessible even the most difficult subject.

We range in age from early twenties to nineties. The ‘Friends’ are students and alumni from the University of Alberta. Working intergenerationally we generate new energy, brilliant ideas and lasting friendships. Our plays are focused on aging rather than age, and celebrate our commonalities.

We give 10-12 performances a year to audiences of seniors and their families, students, health professionals and the general public.

GeriActors & Friends is currently not accepting new members. Read more.
