Performances for this fall are scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 6, at Lifelong at 2 PM and Saturday, December 9, 11:00 AM at the Tompkins County Public Library.
Take a river ride in Nicaragua, hitchhike on a fast four-lane highway, bike to Montauk Point from New York City, discover a snake in your canoe. These are some of the stories that The Senior Troupe of Lifelong will present this fall. Their Living History Theatre centers on the theme of “adventure” featuring stories from the troupe’s lives that are both humorous and serious. The Senior Theatre Troupe of Lifelong has been performing Living History Theatre for more then 18 years. The troupe has performed for audiences that number from 15 to 350 people in many venues in Tompkins County. Directed and coordinated by Sue Perlgut, the troupe features Emily Johnson, Paula Twomley, Carol Santucci, Michael Schaff, Deirdre Silverman, Mark Silverman, Jean Senegas, Sandy Stein and Fran Welch.
The choral theatre is developed from themes that the actors pick and the stories they tell are from their lives. For more information about the Senior Citizen Troupe of Lifelong you can contact Lifelong at 607-273-1511 or go to closetohomeproductions.com/seniortheatretroupe.html.
