A talented troupe of senior actors will be bringing musical comedy to Menlo Park on December 6 in a free production presented by the Menlo Park Library.
Stagebridge Senior Theatre’s musical revue Never Too Late promises a hilarious trip down memory lane, with catchy songs, outrageous skits, and unpredictable fun that challenges and mocks society’s perceptions of old age.
Stagebridge, based in Oakland, is the nation’s oldest and most renowned theatre company of older adults. Founded in 1978, the company’s mission is to transform the lives of older adults and their communities through the performing arts. Stagebridge accomplishes this with award-winning Creative Aging programs that offer older adults opportunities for lifelong learning and participation in the performing arts. Stagebridge’s unique position as a theatre company “for and of” seniors demonstrates in action the many ways in which elders enrich our culture and our communities.
The free performance is sponsored by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library, and will take place Saturday, December 6 at 11:oo am at the Menlo Park City Council Chambers, located at 701 Laurel Street. Free wheelchair accessible van service is available for Menlo Park area seniors and people with disabilities. Call 330-2512 for van reservations.
