STELLAR! New Theatre Works from ACT II STUDIO

This year, the 50+ Festival brings you a taste of theatre!

The Estelle Craig ACT II STUDIO is unveiling three Stella Award-winning plays* and their latest social action theatre creation. The program is also offering a special hands-on workshop in creating theatre. This weekend of theatre is not to be missed.

The Estelle Craig ACT II STUDIO is part of Programs for 50+ and Community Engagement at Ryerson University’s G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education. This theatre program and creative drama centre provides adults 50 and older with a positive, supportive community in which they can learn, create, and perform.
