The Third Age Acting Company is an ensemble of older adults from Merseyside who work together to create and tour theatre. The group have new experiences, develop their acting skills, devise shows and mount local and national tours.
With the current social distancing guidelines, the ensemble are taking part in weekly creative sessions from their own homes. Members can take part over the internet, over the phone, and through the post, so an internet connection is not required.
The Third Age Acting Company is currently working on Women in Action, taking part as researchers, creators and performers.
If you or someone you know would like to join The Third Age group, please get in touch with tessa[@]collective-encounters.org uk
