Program Title
Enriching the lives of Senior Adults through Theatre
Program Summary

We offer innovative programming, from full production plays with our professional cast to short plays that can be done as Readers' Theatre. Readers' Theatre allows volunteer actors at retirement communities or senior centers to perform on stage with script in hand. We also produce LifeWise videos which feature portraits of successful aging.

Program Background and History

Atlanta Theatre-To-Go was founded as a touring theatrical company 8 years ago by Sondra Ilgenfritz as an outreach program to serve Senior Adults. From the original core of taking professional performances to the Senior community, the core mission expanded to include Readers' Theatre in response to audience requests for an activity in which they could participate.
