About our “Young at Heartland” Acting Program for Seniors

Spring and Fall Class Sessions 

Young at Heartland’s spring and fall senior acting workshop normally begins the first Monday in April and the first Monday in August.. Class sessions meet every Monday from 4-6 pm for eight sessions and then go out into the community to perform.  Sessions are dedicated to the study of the craft of acting, culminating in performances at senior activity centers in the area. Ensemble members collaborate with the instructor in choosing appropriate material to be memorized or performed as a reading.

Young at Heartland strives to build an ensemble of seniors who share the values of continuing education, creative self-expression, and community outreach.  It is designed to accommodate and support performers’ comfort levels with memorization. We aim to find appropriate pathways to showcase performers’ gifts in a fun, stress-free atmosphere.
