We are thrilled to announce that our new catalog is on its way to YOU! It has been mailed to US and Canadian customers. While it’s enroute, you can check it out online.

The catalog has 45 new plays from 21 new authors, selected from over 200 submissions. You’ll have fun discovering Readers Theatre Karaoke (TM) and the plays which are available in Spanish and French. Of course, we’ve added plenty of short, funny plays that you enjoy performing so much.

Now the collection has 350 plays, books, and materials just for older performers. There’s a lot to choose from, so if you need help making selections don’t hesitate to contact us.

Have a great summer!

Wanted: music, dance and theatre lovers

End your summer by singing, dancing and acting! Join other older performers, from novice to professional, at the famous and historic Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, New York from August 29-September 2, 2011.

The goal of Encore Creativity for Older Adults’ summer arts program at Chautauqua Institution is to become the premiere location in the U.S. where older actors, singers, and dancers can explore the performing arts. The institutes attract adult students from around the country who want to learn a new art or perfect lifelong skills. Performers, from beginner to advanced, are welcome.

The Theatre Institute will be led by Dr. Stuart Kandell, founder of Stagebridge, the nation’s oldest senior theatre company. Students will experience the excitement of acting, the art of storytelling, and the thrill of performance as they work on ten-minute plays and short scenes from famous plays. The group will explore character development, expression through movement and voice, and tricks for learning lines.

Dancers will have a chance to work with the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange. Students begin the day with warm-up and technique classes, and then focus on ensemble work and solos before blending in the spoken word and personal story.

For the fourth year, Jeanne Kelly, founder of Encore Creativity, will lead the Choral Institute. Singers will begin their day with a movement class followed by rehearsals and voice classes. The repertoire includes Americana, Gilbert and Sullivan, spirituals, oratorio, and more.

In addition to the student’s core ‘track,’ they will be able to choose an afternoon class of theatre, dance or voice.

Participants will enjoy their stay at the historic Athenaeum Hotel overlooking beautiful Chautauqua Lake. At night, Institute students will attend professional concerts.

For more information or to register, visit www.encorecreativity.org, call 301-261-5747, or send Jeanne Kelly an email.
