Everyone has a story to tell. Diversionary invites LGBT Senior Citizens to join its first-ever performance ensemble. The Stonewall Salon is Diversionary’s performance ensemble for older adults culminating in a showcase presentation on our historic Mainstage. The focus of the ensemble is investigating personal stories from the participants’ lives. Using theatre, storytelling and performance techniques, the program will bring what you have to say to life on the stage.
The Stonewall Salon meets twice a week at Diversionary over a seven-week period to work on storytelling, acting, improv, and writing, and create their own ensemble-based show to share with the community.Rehearsals: January 15th, 2019 – February 28, 2019
