The nationally acclaimed theatre company based in Oakland, California celebrates its 29th season as the nation's oldest senior theatre company. Stagebridge has been dedicated to narrowing the gap between the generations and to presenting positive images of older adults. The company has 150 storytellers, actors, dancers, singers, and improvisation students ranging in age between 50 and 90. The company has performed over 30 original plays for more than 300,000 people in clubs, senior centers, hospitals, schools and theatres. A pioneer in the field of healthy aging, Stagebridge created the award winning Healthy Aging Program called “See Me!” to train medical professionals to see older adults as people. Stagebridge also works in inner city elementary schools throughout the Bay Area, with a "Storybridge" literacy program that brings together 10,000 at-risk youth and "grandparent" mentors to share, write up and perform stories about their cultural heritages and personal experiences.
