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.
Our 2020 Intergenerational Theatre Company production tour of "Keys," was cancelled due to the spread of COVID-19. We have recorded the production and have it available for you to watch below.
Auditions for our 2021 production - "Phoenix" - will be coming soon! Please check back for more information or email us to let us know you're interested in auditioning and we'll contact you when we have more information available.
Thanks for your interest in Silver Kite!
