Aged to Perfection

AGED TO PERFECTION Meets Every Second and Fourth Saturday at 10am


Anyone 55 or over is invited to join us! 
It is a program to let anyone dip their toes in the water...Come on in. The water is just fine!



Aged to Perfection is an Old Town Playhouse program specifically geared for seniors 55 and older, both those already active with the OTP and those from broader community.  Whether one is an experienced actor or has no experience but an interest and curiosity to explore theater, Aged to Perfection welcomes you.  Each person can move at their own pace as they are comfortable. Opportunities for participation are varied and always optional and can take into consideration work and time commitments.

Aged to Perfection Readers’ Theatre offers seniors the opportunity to participate in theater while minimizing memorization and time commitment for rehearsals. The Readers’ Theatre format allows productions to be technically manageable and gives opportunity to present performances to schools, libraries, community groups, and senior facilities.  It also allows for a wide choice in repertoire, from classics to contemporary and from radio plays to new work.

"its the perfect opportunity to expand one's horizons," says Margaret Anne Slawson coordinator for the group.

For more information about membership, meetings, or performances, location, or to be put on the Aged to Perfection mailing list, please contact the OTP Business Office at 231-947-2210 or by email.  Aged to Perfection meets the second and fourth Saturday of each month at 10 am downstairs at the Old Town Playhouse.
