THE ELDERS COMPANY IS FOR PEOPLE AGED 60+ WHO TAKE PART IN REGULAR WORKSHOPS AND ONE-OFF PROJECTS TO DEVELOP PERFORMANCE SKILLS AND LEARN MORE ABOUT THEATRE, CREATE PERFORMANCE OUTCOMES, AND WORK INTER-GENERATIONALLY WITH OUR YOUNG COMPANY.

"Joining the Elders is one of the best things I have ever done, and at just the right time in my life. The theatre is fantastic and this term I feel much closer to, and involved with, the other members."

The Royal Exchange Theatre is currently recruiting for an Elders Company of 25 people to take part between September and July 2021 – 2022

Meet new people, make friends, increase self-confidence and work alongside our Young Company. Make theatre that challenges stereotypes of ageing and tells a different story about getting older.

You can find out more about how to apply here.

At the end of the year, Elders Company members become graduates of the Company and can take part as Elders Leaders supporting our Elders Monthly events, Elders Champions leading creative sessions in our local communities and Elders Makers creating new work for our Elders Exchange Day.
