The Prime Time Players play again

One of the theatre companies I have performed with in the past is the Prime Time Players at the Norris Theatre in Palos Verdes. The company is open to people aged 50 and above and was designed as both a vehicle for senior actors to perform and to offer outreach performances to seniors who can’t get out to see live theatre.

This year’s production, 70, Girls,70 opens Friday, March 23and runs through April 1. This show is different from those done in the past in that it is “age appropriate” for Prime Time performers. I know and have performed with many in the cast. They are great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As an aside, Prime Time Players was started in the late 1980s when the Norris Theatre was a new facility on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. I was fortunate to be working with the fundraising committee at that time and had the pleasure to draft the letter that led to the first grant received to fund the then new program. That initial money from Target Stores led to a now 20+ year old institution here on “the hill.” I have performed with them twice in the past, in Once Upon a Mattress and Good News.
