Perennial Players offer opportunities for vaccinated community members aged 50+ (over) to meet new people, enjoy like interests, while learning improvisational skills, memorizing lines, and creating monologues. A social adventure like no other, acting keeps us shar - physically, mentally, and socially through active participation in theater.
Perennial Players serve as the entry point into theatrical performance for people who have never participated in theater before, a re-entry point for those who may have been away from theater for a few years ( or decades), and it's also a great place for veteran performers to continue their enjoyment of performing.
Perennial Players use classes, workshops, short and long plays and reader’s theater.
We will bring performances to the Playhouse stage as well as to area senior centers, assisted living, and other care facilities around Merced county. Reaching our audiences through live, social media, and video streaming performances.
