Acting

Acting

This is a call for participants in a new Senior Center activity. We’ll put on plays for the fun of it, our fun. The audience, if there is one, is secondary. Be a producer and pick a play, arrange for a loca- tion, get some basic props, and recruit a cast. Be a director and conduct a read through, a dress rehearsal and direct the performance. Be an actor and read your part a few times, stumble through the walk-through, and perform! This is the creative part, e.g. what do you do when a fellow actor accidentally reads your line, or you drop your book and lose your place, or you make your grand entrance at the wrong time, or you feel as wooden as a barn timber? Be in the audience and know that if you laugh too loud at your friends, you’ll be cast as the lead in the next play. Sure, this isn’t all that close to real acting, but it is fun. Interested? Just drop Dan a line (no commitment, no fees) at danschweitzer@netscape.net. Do it now, or it will take forever to get this off the ground. Thanks.

The Page Turners Book Group

The Page Turners Book Group

Third Tuesday on the month, 7:00 PM

The Page Turners is a co-ed book group.  We meet at 7:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month, generally in the home of one of the participants.  If you are a member of the Summit Senior Center, then you are eligible to participate, whether you are a full- or part-time resident of Summit County. The reading list for each year is selected by the participants.  Book suggestions, both fiction and nonfiction, including biography, are solicited in the early Fall.  The suggestions are compiled and submitted to the group for voting.  After the winning books are determined, then group members are asked to volunteer to host a meeting or lead the discussion of a book.  Nearly all of the voting process is conducted online, so that even if you are not in the County, you can participate in the book selection. This is a lively, thoughtful discussion group.  We begin with wine and a brief social time, but we really do dig into the books, sharing insights and learning from one another. In order to join this group, please contact Karen Kugler at:  kareninbreck@gmail.com or 970-547-0522.
