Voices Final Performance

Senior Production – Kristin’s 2 Cents

Voices Final Performance

What a roller coaster ride; we shared our stories; talked about who we are, where we’ve come from, what are some of our greatest achievements and some of our greatest challenges. “If you could write a letter to your older self what would it say? What kind of advice would you give yourself?” Together as an ensemble, we weaved those pieces of ourselves into the production Voices of Toronto Seniors.

Personally, I have learned that it is never too late to try new things. We can create a minefield of reasons not to, but sometimes it’s as simple as saying “Why not? What do I have to lose?”

What I appreciate the most is my new-found friendships! I am excited to hang out with Pat and whip up one of her Expert Martinis, to sit with Tom and hear more about sailing the 7 seas, to jam with Aidan, to listen to some tunes with Fred, and of course to see Maureen on the stage playing a role in a Noel Coward play!

I love you all and I am forever grateful for your hard work and dedication!

Kristin over and out… for now!

Kristin Bartlett is the Bilingual Projects & Communications Coordinator at Mixed Company Theatre. She spearheaded “Voices of Toronto Seniors”  and starred in multiple roles. Kristin was essential in creating and producing MCT’s first senior production.

MCT’s The Golden (C)age

In 2011, MCT collaborated with the Hamilton Council on Aging to create a forum production about Elder Abuse. This video shows clips from the presentation as well as testimonials from participants and partners.

Thanks to the New Horizons for Senior’s granting program this experience has led MCT to collaborate with the Toronto Council on Aging and the Ontario Network for Prevention of Elder Abuse in efforts to create a new Forum production designed to spark dialogue in the Greater Toronto community.

If you are interested in being involved we will be looking for volunteers and potential participants in the coming months. Stay wired 🙂
