Green Acres Center
Instructor: Kathie West

This is a continuing acting and producing workshop for serious theater-minded participants, conducted by the OLLI Players, an amateur theater group affiliated with George Mason University. In our repertoire we incorporate lyrics, short scenes, monologues, and original plays, while putting together variety shows, vaudeville shows, and a radio show. We perform at various local venues such as senior centers and libraries. You must be willing to travel during the day, mostly on Fridays. Carpooling is an option available. Winter and spring 2019 we will be rehearsing a murder mystery to be performed in May. Come, join, and be willing to tout OLLI Players and your talents!
