Based in Oakland, California, Stagebridge is the nation’s oldest – and most innovative – senior theatre company. Founded in 1978 by Dr. Stuart Kandell, we’ve grown from an acting class for five women in their 70s to a nationally recognized performing arts and outreach program that is changing how people experience and view aging.
When Stagebridge first began, being over 60 was not nearly as much fun as it is today. Many seniors languished in retirement home settings that provided little stimulation beyond a TV screen or Tuesday night bingo. Today, we use improv, acting and storytelling to help people have the time of their life- at this stage of their life.
