SAY IT! On Stage. “SAY IT” stands for “Seniors and Youth Intergenerational Theatre”. It is a program designed to strengthen connections and encourage collaboration between teens and their elders.
The Town of Pelham, E.L. Crossley High School, and community volunteers will be apart of this exciting creative process that will finish in the performance of an original dramatic production in Fall 2020. Performance Date is to be determined.
Through intergenerational conversation circles, senior participants will have the opportunity to share anecdotes and experiences from their lives; these stories will provide the foundation for a stage play that will be produced and performed by both youth and senior participants. This initiative also seeks to showcase the broad range of talents and passions individuals bring to the project – music, dance, visual arts, crafts, trades.
Our aim is to involve the community of Pelham in all of its diversity, including Indigenous presence and storytelling approaches. We hope you will join us in this artistic endeavour.
