The Wise Owl Players
The Wise Owl Players offers adults 50+ the opportunity to act before live audiences by producing dramatic staged readings, and offering classes needed to create these performances. As part of the Avenidas Senior Center and organization, their 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.
The company has produced Animal Farm, Orwell’s novel adapted by Ian Wooldridge, and Deleted by Enid Davis, a comedy about a support group for fictional characters deleted from their authors’ manuscripts. Classes include Having Fun with Monologues, Boot Camp, and Plays Throughout the Ages, plus rehearsals for upcoming shows.
The next production of Deleted is on September 14 and 15, 2019 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts in Mountain View, California.
