Intergenerational Theatre Company
SilverKite's national award winning Intergenerational Theatre Company creates and performs original life-story based theatre productions which tour to senior living communities, schools, libraries, and community centers in the Puget Sound area of Washington state.
Our Intergenerational Theatre Company has performed and toured 9 productions since 2015. Over 10,000 people from babies - centenarians have seen our productions.
The development of our theatre productions starts with selecting a group of actors from the community. We hold open, public auditions for each production. Intergenerational Theatre Company actors are chosen for their ability to tell stories and authentically engage with the audience not only as actors, but as people. Each actor in our productions is in a different decade of life and is representative of different ethnic backgrounds.
After the actors are chosen, they share their personal stories inspired by a theme (which is also the title of the production) during the rehearsal process. The cast selects and stages some of these stories to include in the performance. The stories are then staged and pieced together.
We hope to see you at an upcoming performance! Interested in having our company of actors tour to your community? Contact us for more information.
Touring October & November 2023
SilverKite will cast 4 actors of diverse age, gender, and ethnic / cultural identities for its Intergenerational Theatre Company production of “Sidewalks.” All actors must be 16 years or older.
The show is a devised piece, so there is no script. During the rehearsal process we’ll build the show based on the life stories and experiences of the cast members.
Actors will be compensated $650 each, which includes 35 hours of rehearsal, 5 performances @ 45 mins each, and a small travel stipend. If we book more than 5 performances, actors will receive an additional $50 for each performance.
“Sidewalks” will tour in October / November 2023. These performances will be in-person, with necessary Covid protocols and precautions considered. All members of the cast / crew must be fully vaccinated by the time rehearsals begin.
This production is funded by a Group Arts Grant from 4Culture.
