Senior Class Reader's Theatre Musical Revue

Our Senior Class Reader's Theatre program was established eleven years ago as a way of providing more performance opportunities for our veteran actors. Needless to say, this reader's theatre program has proven to be very popular with volunteers and patrons alike. It is designed to meet the needs of actors 50 and older. All productions are "reader's theatre" in nature, lines and lyrics are learned but not memorized.

It was an age of conflict. It was an age of love. Join us for a trip back in time as our seniors celebrate the 1960's in a new original music revue. This decade was a tumultuous time for our country. Women, African Americans, Native Americans and other marginalized communities continued their fight for equality, and many Americans joined the protest against the ongoing war in Vietnam. During this decade of extremes, Americans were wearing GoGo Boots and hot pants, discovering Andy Warhol and Pop Art, traveling to Woodstock, and gathering around the TV on Saturday night to watch 'Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In' and 'I Spy.' And the music! "I Heard it Through the Grapevine," "Mr. Tambourine Man," and "Walk on By" played from stereo systems around the world. This tune filled musical revue is sure to take you back to that time in your life and maybe even introduce a new generation to the Age of Aquarius!
