Elders Company


Our theatre group for the over 55s

Our Elders Company is our brand new participatory company for anyone aged 55+. No previous experience of theatre work or amateur dramatics is required - we just ask for bags of enthusiasm and commitment!
Blocks of weekly sessions at Theatre by the Lake will bring participants to the heart of the theatre, giving them access to our productions, on stage and behind the scenes at selected times during the course of the year.
The company will watch, be inspired and challenged by, the high quality theatre that we present in the main house and studio, and they'll have the opportunity to meet cast members and creative teams, giving them an invaluable insight into the world of theatre, whether they are aspiring actors, directors, stage managers, technicians or audience members.
