Age on Stage

They have spent 12 months discovering the joy of playing together and now they are preparing to perform for you. Two of our Third Act classes are bringing their stories to the stage at the NZ Fringe Festival in March 2020. https://www.fringe.co.nz/show/43591

Third Act

Improv with the over 70’s in partnership with Ryman Heathcare. An initiative approach to the wellbeing of our older people. This programme is running in a number of villages across Wellington.

We don’t stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing!

Suffrage in Stitches
