Stories from the Senior Troupe of Lifelong: Ancestors!

April's grandmother is the belle of Mott Street, Mike's Aunt Sarah tells us about her life in Zembine Poland, Emily recounts the stories from her great-great grandfather who fought in the civil war. These are some of the stories that The Senior Troupe of Lifelong will present this Spring. Their Living History Theatre centers on the theme of "ancestors" featuring stories from the troupe's lives that are both humorous and serious. The Senior Theatre Troupe of Lifelong has been performing Living History Theatre for more than 19 years. The troupe has performed for audiences that number from 15 to 350 people in many venues in Tompkins County. Directed and coordinated by Sue Perlgut, the troupe features, , Emily Johnson, April Peress, Paula Twomey, Carol Santucci, Michael Schaff, Deirdre Silverman, Mark Silverman, Jean Senegas, and Sandy Stein.

The players are the characters, the scenery and props. The choral theatre is developed from themes that the actors pick and the stories they tell are from their lives.
