    Cuious about joing a drama group but unsure about learning all those lines? The  Library is introducing a new drama /theater program ~ "Acting for a Change" Improvisational Theater for Seniors.   The program will be directed by Linda Richmond.  No prior acting experience is necessary and because it is improv theater there are no scripts and no lines to learn.

    If you are a senior and curious about acting and would like to tap into your spontaneous, creative self join Ron Wiener, a community theatre director and sociodramatist from Leeds, England, for  his wildly popular “Play in a Day” workshop.  Described as “fantastic and fun,” “entertaining and challenging,” and “a brilliant day,” the workshop leads participants through developing characters and scenarios from their imaginations and experiences to improvising a play around common themes and roughly sketched out scenes.  (No prior acting experience is necessary and there won’t be a script, so you don’t have to learn lines!)  The workshop kicks off a new program of Community Improvised Theater, promoted by the Library and directed by Linda Richmond.


    The "Play in a Day" will be performed at 3:30pm at the Library for members of the community!
