The Wise Owl Players

The Wise Owl Players in production

The Wise Owl Players offers adults 50+ the opportunity to act in classes and in dramatic staged readings. As part of the Avenidas Senior Center and organization, its mission is to encourage social connections, personal growth, and self-esteem. The plays and classes are a cultural benefit to the greater community and demonstrate the richness that older adults bring to the society.

Under director and founder, Enid Davis, the group did not miss a beat during the pandemic. They produced four plays on Zoom: The Senior Storybook (folktales), Ten-Minute Plays and One-Hundred Laughs, and The Oldest Profession by Paula Vogel. They also held classes on Zoom to study the acting techniques needed for such plays as Incident at Vichy by Arthur Miller; Good People by David Lindsay-Abaire; Intimate Attire by Lynn Nottage; and The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.

The next project of The Wise Owl Players will be a Zoom fantasy of The Madwoman of Chaillot.
