Senior Moments was founded in 1999 by the late Joanne Dodge as an all-volunteer performance group for seniors by seniors. The group writes its own plays and short skits, which focus on issues affecting elders, and performs them throughout the state at senior centers and other senior gathering places. The program encourages creativity, celebration of the aging process and the active participation of seniors in the arts.
Past performances have included *Yes, There is a Tomorrow* (depression and suicide prevention), *Help Me, I’m Falling, and I Can’t Get Up* (safety issues), and *I Haven’t Got Time for the Pain* (myths and realistic approaches to dealing with chronic pain). Senior Moments also provides classes in theatre and members routinely meet with seniors to read plays at assisted living homes and day out programs.
Senior Moments has appeared at the New Hampshire Conference on Aging, Maine Senior Expo, Association of American Retired Persons, National Association of the Mentally Ill, WSCA Audio Theatre Players, New Hampshire Public Radio, New Hampshire Public Television, as well as a score of community groups and organizations throughout New England.

Seacoast Rep and Senior Moments presents a fun farce!
“Bud the Stud” is a member of the senior set who has sex drive of a teenager. Mrs. Stancliffe, the owner of the B&B next door uses him to drum up business. Bring in a persistent suitor who has developed a female version of Viagra, a friend who is willing to try the product, a frustrated menopausal romantic novelist and a southern belle with an overactive libido, and you have a recipe for a rollicking good time.
Join the cast of Senior Moments, a production company by seniors for seniors, for a night of laughs in this farce by Michael and Susan Parker.
Shows are June 26th and 28th at 7pm.
