A year-long creative programme to develop theatre skills for people aged 60+

As part of The Elders Company you will develop your performance skills, learn more about theatre and work inter-generationally with our Young Company. A new Company is recruited each year and they will work together regularly from September 2023 to July 2024.

As well as weekly sessions, Company members gain exclusive insights into the theatre by having opportunities to:

  • Attend special events
  • Take part in intergenerational working with our Young Company, apply to take part in creative outcomes, including theatre productions (both elders, intergenerational and main stage productions if community ensembles are required).
  • Attend public performances for free (subject to availability).
  • Receive a fortnightly bulletin with news and opportunities.
  • At the end of the year, Elders Company members become Graduates of the Company.

“My life has changed so much since joining the Elders Company. I feel so happy, so confident, so creative, and I feel so safe and respected. You have helped me shine.”  Ann, Elders Company

The 2023/2024 Company has now been recruited.
