Senior Theater Troupe of Lifelong

Who We Are

The Senior Troupe of Lifelong has been performing for more than nineteen years. We perform stories from our lives, with themes picked by the troupe. The troupe has performed for audiences that number from 15 to 350 people in many venues in Tompkins County. It is directed and coordinated by Sue Perlgut.

The theatre we perform is without sets, lights and props. The players are the characters, the scenery and props. The choral theatre is developed from themes that the actors pick and the stories they tell are from their lives. Our Living History theatre, which we are calling “choral theatre” can accommodate the various ages and physical stamina of the actors. Past themes have been about clothing, travel, animals, winter, women in our lives and prejudice. The director and members of the troupe range in age from the 60’s to the 90’s. This program is made possible, in part, with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County
