Celebrating it's 4th year, "Abuelito, dime tú", a theater training program for Seniors came back to the Lower East Side.

Teatro Círculo is thrilled to announce that in January the company will continue its 4th annual program for seniors called “Abuelito, dime tú” (Grandpa, tell me a story). This initiative will provide theatre training to our abuelitos in two seniors centers in the Lower East Side. For three months, the seniors will develop and rehearse a theatrical production, which then will be presented free of charge to general audiences at our professional theater in May. This year the participant senior centers are Grand Street SettlementLillian Wald Senior Center, Henry Street Settlement, Project FIND Hamilton Senior Center, Cypress Hills Fulton St. Senior Center and around 75 seniors will engage in the new program. Councilwoman Rosie Méndez through the Department of Cultural Affairs and its Cultural Immigrant Initiative provided the funds for this series.

“We at Teatro Círculo believe this is a wonderful opportunity to tap into the talent of our community of seniors, who have a lot to contribute to our great city”-said Rubén Darío Cruz, Program Coordinator. Performances will be on April 11 at 3PM and is free to the public. For more information contact Rubén Darío Cruz at: rcruz@teatrocirculo.org or call 212-505-1808
