“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”

Doug has been active in Sage Age Theatre since 2012 as a performer and lately as program coordinator. Before joining Sage Age he had not done any theatre work since his university days many years ago. Being a travelling improv performer has been a delightful departure from the structured planning of his working career as a communications manager. “Acting up before audiences to create laughter and smiles has been an inspiring and liberating experience I have been thoroughly enjoying”.

Program Coordinator & Performer

I joined Sage Age in 2014 as part of my Senior Therapy Coping Program. Laughter is the best medicine and I have loved this medication since I was first on stage at age 7.  My humour skills were honed by 20 years volunteering with our TYPS youth centre and even more years with Big Brothers Big Sisters. I have also enjoyed working with the Valley Players in Almonte for about 4 years. Sage Age allows me to laugh with others and share some of the wisdom and adventure of advancing age.

Having joined Sage Age Theatre in 1995, Bob is our longest serving member. As a former teacher and union contract negotiator, Bob is accustomed to improvising. Apart from performing, the thing Bob enjoys the most is watching new members who have never before acted or even spoken before a large audience gain confidence in themselves. Bob says that he often got into trouble for saying the first thing that came to mind; now this negative trait has become a positive with Sage Age.

Betsy is our most senior Sage Ager. For several years now she has been delighting audiences and surprising her fellow performers with her spontaneous and mischievous one line zingers. Betsy finds performing a liberating experience. “I can be what I want, say what I want without censure! That’s why I like being a part of Sage Age”.

Marianne is new to Sage Age, but not new to acting. Her love of performing came early since she’s the youngest child in her family. Previously, she has acted with both the Mississippi Mudds of Carleton Place and the Valley Players of Almonte. She’s also directed and written plays. Sage Age presents a new and exciting challenge for her and one that keeps her on her toes since you never know what the others will say til they say it.
