About the Senior Troupe:
The Senior Troupe of Lifelong has been performing for more than twenty years. We perform stories from our lives, with themes picked by the troupe. The troupe is directed and coordinated by Sue Perlgut who has more than 35 years of teaching theatre to all ages.
Our Living History theatre, which we are calling “choral theatre” can accommodate the various ages and physical stamina of the actors. Past themes have been about clothing, travel, animals, winter, women in our lives and prejudice. The director and members of the troupe range in age from the 60’s to the 90’s.
