A New Senior Theatre Survey

ArtAge publications has recently concluded their survey of 142 Senior Theatre companies and have found some interesting statistics. For instance, almost 75% of theatres have been in existence for 1-12 years, reinforcing the belief that they come and go frequently. Also, with the grant writing atmosphere so competitive, many theatres are now for-profit. Still, 43% of Senior Theatres do not charge for their shows.  Perhaps the most important finding was that most directors are creating “very rewarding” experiences. Many factors contribute to that finding, but as ArtAge Publications President Bonnie L. Vorenberg said, “It’s because the magic of theatre works at any age!”
