Golden Autumn Players

The Golden Autumn Players (GAP) are a group of Playmakers who have a desire to perform without the requirements of weeks-long rehearsals and line memorization. This group of senior citizens has performed in a variety of settings and focuses on community outreach, with hopes to continue bringing the arts to those who may not be able to go to the Theatre. While many performances are in private settings, they also offer many chances to see their public performances! 


The Golden Autumn Players welcomes your participation either as audience, or prospective members.  We are busy seniors with a history of acting  and the gusto to continue performing for others.  But the big bonus, we don’t agonize over memorization .  Join us for a romantic and comic interlude.

Bedtime Stories

John Jo Mulligan, a somewhat shy, young clerk, has a first date with Angela Nightingale.  The date went well until the following morning when he needs to sneak her out of his lodging house.  Angela realizes she has become John's secret, so she turns the tables.  She convinces him he has led her astray while also robbing him in the process.


The Golden Autumn Players bring this delightful play to the Black Box at the Playmakers in April.

Tickets are pay what you can! (minimum of $3 | suggested $8)

On a rainy night, a flower seller was overheard speaking to another vendor by  two gentlemen, who made a bet that one of them could raise the flower seller to a flower shop manager if only she would consent to learn to "enunciate and articulate" her language.  She, Eliza, overhears the bet and takes them up on it.  Over the next few weeks, she does just what he suggests, and finds herself mixing in upper class teas and picnics, and requests her own flower shop!  She's  moving out!  The gentlemen are caught.  But they've become "accustomed to her face!"

A full length comedy featuring three senior sisters, who live together in the family homestead. Their family doctor has managed their health for many years, and has just added a nurse to his practice who needs a place to live. Wonderful idea, since the sisters have a large house, he arranges for the nurse to board with them, and bond with them in ways unexpected. Family secrets exposed, a black sheep or two, and “shocking” holiday hilarity.

The Golden Autumn Players bring this delightful play to the Black Box at the Playmakers in February to spread swath of sunshine on senior family life.
