Bonnie's column: So honored to be named a "Trail Blazer"...twice!

Bonnie L. Vorenberg

Bonnie L. Vorenberg

The theme for this year's Older American's Month is to "Blaze a Trail." So, it was an honor to have the Administration on Aging name me as a "Trail Blazer" for the innovative work I've done in my 30+ years in Senior Theatre.

Then, a few days later, the National Center of Creative Aging also named me as a "Trail Blazer." Here's what they said:

Since discovering Creative Aging in 1978, Bonnie Vorenberg has worked tirelessly to create opportunities for older artists to act, write, and produce their work through Senior Theatre programs. She has led the Senior Theatre field in writing one of the first theses on the field, creating the first talent agency for seniors, and publishing a catalog of over 400 plays. Known by her colleagues as "The Guru of Senior Theatre," Bonnie says that "Senior Theatre has fulfilled my creativity, fueled my passion, and enabled me to help generations of older actors."

I am so grateful to be recognized for my life's passion. But, even more important is how grateful I am for you, my friends, colleagues, and customers who support our valuable work. Thank you.

Yours in theatre,

Bonnie Vorenberg, ArtAge President

Their popular Mr. Es Radio Spiritz Show

The Last Best Geri-Actors of Bozeman, MT, is a busy bunch! One of the few Senior Theatres in Montana, the LBGA is based in the Bozeman Senior Center as a readers theatre group.

In the last two years, they have done three dinner theatres and three community shows, with one being at the invitation of The Museum of the Rockies. They also performed over thirty outreach shows, sometimes traveling as much as thirty miles between two performances in one day.

Ranging in ages from 60 to 93, members of the LBGA delight in bringing smiles to the over 1,000 audience members who they have entertained. The group is so popular, it already has bookings for next year. Watch for them at state conferences of The Daughters of the American Revolution and at The Montana Ghost Town Preservation Society.
