The groups may be completely new or formed from within an existing organization or company. The new Acting Up groups will get all sorts of support from Kaleidoscope including access to specially commissioned plays for older actors and the opportunity to attend special training courses and workshops with professional actors, writers and directors. The Acting Up groups will also get the chance to perform in a professional theatre as part of the Acting Up Theatre Festival.
Best of all there are no costs for older people taking part in Acting Up thanks to the support of the Big Lottery Fund.
Right now Kaleidoscope are looking for groups and individuals in the North West region of England who are keen to participate in this incredible programme. If you are over the age of sixty and you are interested in getting involved in Acting Up or would like some more information check out the Kaleidoscope website for more details www.kaleidoscopeni.com.
