SAY IT: On Stage (Seniors and Youth Intergeneration Theatre): Thursday Group Sessions

SAY IT: On Stage (Seniors and Youth Intergeneration Theatre): Thursday Group Sessions

Repeats every week every Thursday 3 times.
Thursday, October 3, 2019 -
15:30 to 17:00

The Town of Pelham is creating a designated space for seniors in the Meridian Community Centre.  This will be home to an 8-month project: SAY IT! On Stage. “SAY IT” stands for “Seniors and Youth Intergenerational Theatre”. It is a program designed to strengthen connections and encourage collaboration between teens and their elders. A Niagara Community Foundation grant, together with in-kind donations from the Town of Pelham, E.L. Crossley High School, and community volunteers will fund this exciting creative process that will finish in the performance of an original dramatic production in December, 2019. Through 8 weeks of intergenerational conversation circles, senior participants will have the opportunity to share anecdotes and experiences from their lives; these stories will provide the foundation for a stage play that will be produced and performed by both youth and senior participants. This initiative also seeks to showcase the broad range of talents and passions individuals bring to the project – music, dance, visual arts, crafts, trades. Our aim is to involve the community of Pelham in all of its diversity, including Indigenous presence and storytelling approaches. We hope you will join us in this artistic endeavor.

Group sessions will be held Thursdays (Starting Sept. 12) from 3:30pm - 5pm Meridian Community Centre in the  Accursi Room 

Free to attend. Come join us for some light snacks and refreshments and help with the development of the stage play.
