Intergenerational Theatre Company
About Silver Kite's Intergenerational Theatre Company
Silver Kite offers touring intergenerational theatre performances to schools, retirement communities, faith communities, and other community organizations throughout the Puget Sound region.
Silver Kite's Intergenerational Theatre Company performs original life-story based theatre productions. Our productions tour to retirement communities, schools, community centers, faith communities, and other community organizations.
Our theatre productions are created by the members of our Intergenerational Theatre Company (ITC), using the company's life experiences and life stories as a source for the scenes, songs, and movement pieces included in the performance.
Our next Intergenerational Theatre Company production, "Keys," will be on tour in the Puget Sound region from March 1 - April 30, 2019.
