Canada’s Seniors: Our Roots, Our Future has been co-created by the Our Voices group of 16 local seniors (including 10Carden member Tania Orton), with playwright Catherine Frid. The group has been meeting weekly since April, telling stories and improvising scenes, and is now in rehearsal for the show with director Alexandra Lent..

 The play’s scenes explore, among other things: the joys and pitfalls of the cell phone age; how families have changed; and even a Utopian vision of the future. This comedic, poignant and insightful show also includes a new song the group created with composer James Gordon.

 The Our Voices group is sponsored by Eramosa Eden Retreat Centre, and Canada’s Seniors: Our Roots, Our Future is funded by the Guelph Community Foundation’s Canada 150 initiative and the Ontario Arts Council, with support from Guelph/Eramosa Township, Long & McQuade, Guelph Little Theatre and Eden Mills Community Hall.

Tickets are $15, at the door. For more info and reservations, please go to:, or call 416.834.2148.
