Silver Squad: Past Education Programs

The programs listed here have been offered as FREE drop-in theatre performance classes to the Diversionary community of LGBTQ+Allied Older Adults. The Silver Squad allows attendees to gain confidence, make new friends, and learn about the art of theatre as we create a supportive environment to explore your creative voice, and connect with others.


April 9th, 2021 from 2pm-3pm: Creative Workout

Feeling tired, feeling like you have lost some strength and mobility through Covid? Then sign up for this physical class and dust of those covid cobwebs and give your body a dose of life! Through a series of mental and physical exercises, this class will challenge you, and will then apply these skills to physical theatre, and explore some new physical expression. Choose your own engagement level: In a chair, or on your feet, and dress to move.

April 30th, 2021 from 2pm-3pm: Short Form Creative Writing

In this creative writing workshop we will do some quick writes and some fun exercises to get your writing juices flowing. Drawn on personal experience, or try writing some fiction. All writers are welcome, and no experience is required. Join us and unleash your inner storyteller.

May 21st, 2021 from 2pm-3pm: Improv!

A fun filled workshop of theatre exercises and improv games. We will expand our sense of play, and try what it feels like to be an actor with no script. If you need to laugh, this fun filled afternoon, don’t miss it.

June 4th, 2021 from 2pm-3:30pm Artist Share

In this edition of Silver Squad, we open up the workshop to our artists of our community. Bring a snippet of anything you are working on, in any condition, and share it with the group. If you would like feedback, we are happy to oblige. At the start of the session we will determine how many people would like to share and explain how many minutes you will have. Calling all writers, musicians, visual artists, poets, actors, and beyond…

    About Our Education and Community Engagement Programs

    Arts Education is thriving at Diversionary Theatre, and our programs spread the seeds of understanding and tolerance around our unique mission as the third oldest LGBTQIA+ theater in the country. Watch this video to learn more about each of our education programs. 

    By sharing LGBTQIA+ stories with our community we bring stories that need to be told, directly into people’s lives. We provide a safe place for all students, and we are excited to extend a lifeline to our LGBTQIA+ youth who may not have the support at home or at their school. We are giving people permission to be who they are, and for many this might be a life saving experience.

    Make a Difference

    All of these programs are only made possible by the generous support of our donors and our community.
