OnStage Seniors


Originally founded in 2007, Onstage Seniors officially became a part of McCarter Theatre Center in 2014, joining a host of programs designed to educate and engage the community. This impactful program creates documentary theater performances that explore the stories of our local community. Our ensemble members — all over 55 — perform in theaters, libraries, schools, and senior centers generating delight, insight, and affirmation about senior memories and experiences.

Our current piece, In or Out: Stories of Belonging and Exclusion, available until January 2020, features stories performed by actors, based on real-life interviews. In or Out includes both humorous and moving accounts of the search for belonging, and the moments along the way when one feels rejected, excluded, accepted, or embraced.
