The Philly Senior Stage is a group dedicated to bringing the performing arts to senior adult communities, with the mission of using “the art form called theatre to unlock and unleash the creative energy residing in us all.”
The group has been performing since 2006, when founder Robb Hutter proposed acting and creative drama classes in the retirement community Shannondell at Valley Forge. The initiative quickly expanded to neighboring retirement communities, and now the Philly Senior Stage performs musicals, comedies, and dramas throughout the Greater Philadelphia area.
The group works on conducting theater workshops in senior communities, creating original theater shows from the life experiences of participants, and staging classical and contemporary plays with older adults as actors, with the aim of fostering dramatic self-expression and building community.
