It’s a Wonderful, Wacky World

The theme for our fall showcase is “It’s a Wonderful, Wacky World.” Whether you have seen a beautiful rainbow or a funny blooper on TV, you know you’ve just enjoyed a view of our world that will lighten your heart.  Heartland Theatre’s senior acting troupe will roll out a new set of plays in October that take in stride both the wonderful and wacky world in which we live.

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.

The performances, open to the public, are set on Heartland’s stage.  Doors will open at 20 minutes before performance. There will be no reservations taken for the Showcase, first come – first served. Admittance is a donation to the Young at Heartland program.

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. These Showcase performances are the only ones held at the theatre. See Young at Heartland’s fall touring schedule.

Sandra Zielinski is the workshop instructor, assisted by Terri Whisenhunt, with Ann B. White the program director.

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.
