Donations Accepted (No reservations taken) 

Heartland’s senior acting program struts its stuff on stage at Heartland with four showcases, two in the summer and two in the fall. Enjoy talented seniors performing scenes and original short plays for just a donation at the door.

These seniors have participated in a two-month acting workshop and have prepared brief scenes depicting some of the opportunities that life can bring. This troupe is usually seen “on the road” at area nursing and retirement homes, and for other church and civic groups – but the Covid-19 Pandemic did not allow for this in 2020 through June 2021. These Showcase performances are the only ones held at the theatre. See Young at Heartland’s touring schedule.

The performances, open to the public, are set on Heartland’s stage. 

Sandra Zielinski, assisted by Rich Tinaglia, are the instructors for the Summer Showcase, with Ann B. White as the program director. 

About Young at Heartland:

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. This workshop is supported in part by a grant from the McLean County Arts Regranting Program. See more about Young at Heartland.
