THE OVER-55 FOLKS RECONVENE by Barbara Biddison
Suppose you're 65 or 85 (or older or younger or in-between) and you wake up one morning and wonder when Acting Up is going to start meeting again. Or suppose you're that age and remember that you have heard about HG's Acting Up and wondered if that would be something you'd like to do. Or suppose a friend wants to go and is reluctant to go alone. Well, it's time to give it a try, or to return to it for the umpteenth year!
It's time for ACTING UP to gather together for Hamilton-Gibson's opportunity designed for folks over 55 (no age limit on the top—we've welcomed in recent years at least 2 who have reached 90). We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 2PM on the second floor of the Deane Center. All are invited to "just show up" for an hour of reading aloud to each other, a casual ReadersTheatre experience.
People come and go as their lives require. You can still go to your grandson's birthday party, or to a doll club meeting, or south for the winter. No gold stars for perfect attendance! We do like to know
about how many will be there on a given Tuesday so we can plan an appropriate group reading, but we like to keep it loose. That's probably how we have been able to keep Acting Up going regularly since
Who is this "we" newcomers may ask. It's Larry and Barbara Biddison. We both have some background in literature and in theatre, and we love helping people develop skills in the oral presentation of all kinds of literature. Yes, we read plays, and also prose and poetry. Y'all come! We welcome newcomers as well as longtime regulars.
