About Our Program
For AWB Seniors, the ultimate triumphs are the self-esteem and lasting friendships that are created from working as a close-knit ensemble. Our program meets once a month from November-October, with a 4-day intensive workshop in July, all leading up to a public performance in the fall. Participants receive training in acting, singing, movement, and improvisational techniques.

AWB relies on volunteers.
The first Sunday of every month volunteers assist our actors at workshops as they learn their lines and rehearse their parts. Our most dedicated volunteers support our actors throughout the year and are a part of the yearly performance. There are opportunities for people who want a creative outlet through set design, props and costume development. Great for early teens, adults and seniors!
