    in Fitness


    Mark Twain said..."Age is a matter of the mind, if you don't mind, it doesn't matter!"

    I love Vivaldi...The Four Seasons...Winter, the 2nd-3rd acts of our lives...hmmm, I see winter as the springtime of my life, climbing higher on the path of life which has no end only new beginnings, new opportunities, new portals and vistas to enter to explore and that's what a group of retired Professional Actors have embraced, their fire-in-the-belly desire to stay involved during their so-called "retirement."

    It's a group of Chicago members of the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists who've had illustrious careers.


    Acting in five live shows a year...etc.

    Players/Actors read from scripts...etc.

    The appeal---intergenerational...etc.

    Senior Theatres in the Spotlight...etc.
