OnStage Seniors: Community Stage Event- Free and Open to the Public!
OnStage Seniors, a community project of McCarter Theatre, creates documentary theater performances that explore the stories and issues of our community. Ensemble members – all over 55 – perform locally, generating delight, insight, and affirmation about senior memories and experiences. In 2014, Onstage officially became a part of McCarter Theatre Center, joining a host of programs designed to educate and engage the community.
This year’s performance is around the theme In or Out: Exclusion, Inclusion, and Being Out of Your Comfort Zone.
“OnStage shatters all the myths that people have about aging. Through skits and vignettes—some humorous, some touching—the performers totally engage audiences who sit there enrapt. I do a lot of research and reading about over 55 group endeavors and I’ve never heard of a theatrical group like OnStage. It is unique.”
This performance is part of the Arts Council of Princeton’s Community Stage Series. Community Stage productions are free (and nearly free) held in collaboration with local artistic groups and organizations. Community Stage programming enable the Arts Council’s Solley Theater to act as an accessible space for community partnerships and high-quality artistic experiences.
