We specialize in "Senior Theatre" productions and define it as:
productions where the majority of roles are performers over the age of fifty years addressing senior issues and interests.
For the first time in history, the over fifty years of age group is the largest segment of our society.
We are the healthiest, wealthiest, wisest, most educated, most traveled, and most philanthropic, and nothing is written for
us in theatre for either entertainment or participation. Our policy is to change that.
Being involved with a community or senior theatre is
a great way to use your talents, find new talents, make new friends...or just have fun.

ENTERTAINING PEOPLE OF ALL AGES
A Bag Full Of Miracles
is entertaining for all ages. The four leading roles call for actors over 65 years of age. The remaining characters are of optional
ages...there is even a child's role.
Our primary goal is to help theatres produce successful, money-making plays using today's technology.
A Bag Full Of Miracles and the PIPKIT achieves that goal by combining extensive artistic
capabilities with sound management principles.
About The PIPKIT Music
The music is recorded using a 16-piece orchestra and is provided on three CDs: Demonstration, Rehearsal
(some songs have two different tempos) and an integrated sound track for Performance. Both pitch and tempo changes
can be made for additional costs.
