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. The program aims to find appropriate pathways to showcase performers’ gifts in a fun, stress-free atmosphere.
Heartland’s Acting Workshop, called “Young at Heart-land” is a program of HEARTLAND THEATRE COMPANY and is funded in part by the McLean County Arts Center Regranting program, grant provider for the ILLINOIS ARTS COUNCIL and the Mirza Arts and Culture grant from the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation.
