About the production
The Cline couple will experience all the pitfalls and frustrations which confront older adults in their retirement years. Will they negotiate the shoals and reefs successfully? Will their marriage survive? Will they survive? The play begins with a retirement party. For some the party heralds a glorious new era of freedom and adventure. For others it sounds a peal of doom. The drama is punctuated with songs resonating with the determination of seniors who want neither to be dismissed nor forgotten. The production stars older actors with an array of backgrounds and experiences. If you’ve never experienced a piece of forum theatre, this is your chance to see how it works. This interactive play invites the audience to come on stage, take on the role of one of the characters and explore possible options to the issues presented.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about our senior programming, please call (416) 515-8080 or email info@mixedcompanytheatre.com. You can also check out our website MixedCompanyTheatre.com.

New MCT Blog!

posted in: Announcements | 0

Well boys and girls, it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for – yep, that’s right, the new MCT blog has final arrived! We’ve spent months pouring over social media strategies and creating a brand new show that’s jam packed with technology (Showdown 2.0 – you’ll hear all about that later) so it seemed like an opportune time to launch our new blog.

You’ll be hearing from interns-extrodinaire, Carina & Janie; super enthusiastic co-op student, Eslam; and of course yours truly, MCT Communications & Outreach Coordinator, Deidre.

MCT’s 2011-2012 Educational Tour Season is all about bullying awareness, so there’ll be lots of content about that, as well as a sneak-peak into rehearsals and reports from the road.

Stay tuned!
