Bonnie's column: Have a positive outlook about life
Bonnie L. Vorenberg
Bonnie L. Vorenberg

If you watch too much of the news and fall under the spell of the naysayers, you might start to believe that the world is falling down around us. Before you begin to think that way, stop and take a breath.

You know, thinking negatively doesn't help you or anyone else. But only you can stop it before it starts to take over your mind, and then your heart.

That's when you turn to the theatre for a break from daily life. Take a dose of fantasy, wash it down with imagination, and add a sprinkling of humor. You'll be amazed how much better the world looks!

In Senior Theatre we bring a better outlook to our performers and to our audiences, all with a combination of great characters, strong plots, and a lot of humor.

Stay focused, remain positive, and keep performing!

Yours in theatre,

Bonnie Vorenberg
ArtAge President

New! The Robbin' Hoods--now available and on the Playreading Conference Call

Just Published: The Robbin' Hoods by Michael Licwinko

1 man, 6 women
35 minute comedy

Like many seniors, Al and Mabel Hood planned well for their retirement. Then Gus, Al's sister...also known as El Diablo...made a bad investment that wiped out their savings. Broke and desperate, what else could they do but rob the rich? After a year, however, Al wants to quit and move to Florida. On the other hand, Mabel wants to open a scam artist training school for other needy seniors. When Gus brings two willing students to the program, Al knows the police and retirement to a prison cell cannot be far behind. Amid mixups and mayhem, he has one last scam...uh...scheme...that saves the day.

Meet Margo Prentice, comedienne
Margo Prentice
Margo Prentice

When Margo Prentice walks on stage, she looks straight into the audience and tells them, “I’ve stopped lying about my age, now I BRAG about it. I am 75.” The audience cheers. Margo Prentice is seriously funny a little naughty, and sees laughter as a healing part of life.

Margo is part of a growing number of performers who are taking to the stage to do stand-up comedy. They bridge the generation gap and use humor to help younger people understand insights about older people--and life.

Take a moment to click on the link below and watch her videos on youtube.

Congratulations, Margo!
