Elder Ensemble

In 2019, WAM Theatre proudly launched our much anticipated Elder Ensemble – a performance group for a cohort of women over 65 years. Led by WAM Teaching Artists, and in collaboration with WAM’s Teen Ensemble, the ensemble created and performed FRACTURED DREAMS. This performance toured four venues throughout Berkshire county, premiering at WAM’s 10th Anniversary Gala.

A wonderful adventure that far exceeded my expectations of fun and self-satisfaction.  I’m grateful to have been part of it.” Flo Brett, 2019 Elder Ensemble member

Devised theatre is a collaborative process where an ensemble uses a variety of techniques– writing, improvisation, games, movement, brainstorming, and more– to create original performance material.  The criteria for participation is enthusiasm and the creative impulse to voice your feelings and ideas through multiple forms of artistic expression. Prior performance experience is welcomed but not necessary.
