NextStage Productions

We’d love to have you get to know NextStage Productions better and help us promote our mission to engage, educate and enrich the lives of active adults 50+ through our Human Race campaign. We develop theatrical and performance arts skills for seniors and provide entertainment and outreach to our community. We contribute to the community by making the arts more accessible to artists and audiences over 50. Whether you have a background in the arts, or have the secret heart of a performer, NextStage has a range of programs based in the creative arts that empower seniors to find joy, dignity and provide an outlet for their love of theatre and music with creative expression. In addition to performance troupes performing musical programs in community venues, we offer classes that include voice technique, acting, musical theatre, comedy and other aspects of performing arts. All that is needed from our participants is the wonderful experience that comes with the creativity of the aging process. Creative aging is a field that promotes artistic expression in the lives of older adults leading to improved health and emotional well-being. Additionally, art has been shown to foster connections between those with Alzheimer’s and dementia and their caregivers, whether family or professional. Our TIMESLIPS program is an improvisational storytelling process, which ignites the imagination of individuals with mild cognitive impairment in a safe, co-creative practice and environment. If you would like to participate in our programs, contact us at www.nextstagesantacruz.org. In the meantime, we would really appreciate your support of our goal of changing attitudes toward aging through the arts through our Human Race campaign. Thank you!
