Over 50s Shine On at Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre
MEMBERS of Coventry’s 50-plus communities have created a new production which will be performed at the Belgrade Theatre tonight (Saturday).
Shine On will run in the B2 auditorium, following the theatre’s work alongside Age UK, holding creative workshops for the over 50s.
The workshops brought together participants from a diverse range of backgrounds and communities and with direction from project leader Antonia Beck, they devised the production Shine On, which aims to challenge some of the stereotypes attached to older people.
Participant Joyce Jones said: “Shine On has been a great experience and the whole group has developed skills as individuals.
“I never dreamt I would be treading the boards, but I was surprised at the confidence I found in myself. I’m already looking forward to the next season and stretching myself further.”
Shine On is part of the Belgrade’s Creative Gymnasium project. Funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Awards for All.
Tickets for all of the Creative Gymnasium events are free, however the theatre will ask for a donation at the end of the performance.
