    • Senior theatre has kept me alive. For over 18 years, it has gotten me out of the house, helped me find a second family, and do it all without pills! I went from being a grocery checker to leading actress because I love being in front of an audience. I encourage others to read “Senior Theatre Connections” and see how it can change your life! Nona, Performer, age 84.
    • This resource is a dandy.  Along with a complete directory of theatre groups for seniors, which are listed in alphabetical order but indexed by both state and name, seasoned Vorenberg includes resources on every aspect of senior theatre…Older actors as well as those working in…communities will find a wealth of information here on finding, initiating, and expanding senior programs…Vorenberg’s enthusiasm for her subject adds bounce to the text–and her bibliography of books, plays, anthologies, and articles on senior arts and theatre is downright motivational.  Librarians serving older populations would do well to add this one to their shelves.
