TheaterWorks is pleased to announce the launch of our newest program – Broadway Senior. The Broadway Senior program is specifically designed for adults over the age of 50 as a recreational activity where participants learn the skills of musical theater, including acting, voice, choreography, movement and stage presence, while creating a mainstage production. Participants will rehearse twice a week for nine weeks culminating in two performances on the Gyder Stage of the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts.
Broadway Senor will be learning and performing SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN, SR. The “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Betty Comden and Adolph Green, from their original award-winning. Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards this show a guaranteed good time for performers and audience members alike.
The goal of this program is to use the performing arts as a way to build and sustain social connections as well as motivating participants cognitively and physically. There will be an emphasis on fun and learning the skills of theater. Actors will not be expected to memorize lines, choreography will be individualized and all actors who attend and pay tuition have roles in the production.
Rehearsals will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30am – 1pm beginning February 12, 2019 at the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts (10580 N. 83rd Drive, Peoria, AZ 85345). Tuition is $180.
