Kelowna: Acting Gives Seniors a Platform to Have Fun and Learn

ST-AGE-ING MATTERS is a group of retired older adults in British Columbia who have only recently begun learning about acting and improvisational theatre. They refer to themselves as the “gerry actors,” and work under the direction of acting teacher and arts professional Ruth Bieber. The group of seniors has received praise for their performance “Acting Out Our Issues,” in which the actors discuss real life experiences associated with getting older. This performance has sparked discussion about aging, which has helped many of the participants and viewers endure the changes together.
