Take The Stage!

Your residents in the spotlight.



So your residents would like to put on their own show! Philly Senior Stage can help them do just that.

Whether your residents are active or frail, Philly Senior Stage can accommodate their needs.

We conduct a step by step process for mounting a show from recruiting the “actors” to preparing them for opening night!

With a large selection of performance formats to offer – such as old-time radio shows, script-in-hand readings, one-act comedies, musical productions and talent
shows – we guarantee their show will be THE highlight of your
entertainment calendar!

We provide theatre direction and supervise all that’s involved in putting on a show.

Our programs can create and develop an ongoing residential acting
company at your community.

This is the first time in six months this community has gotten together and laughed out loud. Seeing our friends on the stage strutting their stuff and daring to make fools of themselves was just the medicine we needed here at Stonebridge.”- Reeves Hicks, 87, audience member, Stonebridge at Montgomery
When the show begins with me singing the opening number, I feel the adrenaline rush. The theatre has always been my love and this drama group helps me to fulfill my early dreams.”- Janis Kind, 84, Attleboro Village
The Martins Run Drama Club rehearses in a room right across the hall from my office. I often hear the sounds of singing, laughter, and high drama coming from the rehearsal space, which inevitably draws me out of my office to listen. I love to stand in the back of the room and watch the joy on the faces of the actors and actresses as they go through their paces. For them, this is Hollywood, Broadway, and Vaudeville – all wrapped up in one! Clearly, the dramatic impulse knows no age limits.”- Linda M. Sterthous, Chief Executive Officer, Martin's Run
Robb, the director, told me we would need extra chairs for this show, but we haven’t been getting big crowds lately to the entertainers I bring in for the residents. And sure enough, five minutes before the show started I had to call maintenance to bring an additional thirty chairs for the “latecomer rush”! I was thrilled!”- Patty Gallagher, Director of Activities, Independent Living, Simpson House
When Robb called me about four years ago I thought his idea of a drama group would never work, but he met the Simpson House residents and they loved him! So here we are four years later with about four shows done here at Simpson House and we have taken our Shows on the road to Simpson Meadows, AARP meetings, Church groups and even an interview with channel 12.”- Patty Gallagher, Director of Life Enrichment, Simpson House
