THE STORY

This musical play tells the story of a widow and widower who discover that life in later years can be exciting and fulfilling. They meet on an online dating site and their adventure begins! After dealing with the ups and downs of dating again, they ultimately set their sights on a cruise. Along the way, there are laughs, a bit of drama and lots of music.

We are casting for two leads, six supporting roles, and an ensemble of eight to ten. We are looking for actors, singers, and dancers.

 Committee of Eight - An Aging Ingénue Production

Sun City Grand is rightfully proud of the many dramatic and musical productions we offer as part of the 'Entertainment Package' that prospective new homebuyers consider when comparing us to other senior communities. Tickets are currently on sale for a brand new play featuring a stellar cast of some of our community's most talented entertainers. It was written, co-directed and produced by singer-actress-lyricist Joyce Stern Greenberg and co-directed by actress/singer Eileen Brooks, both of whom are SCG residents. Under the musical direction of renowned Chicago Pianist and band leader Allan Kaye, the play is about a Committee that has been formed to plan their 50th college reunion. With clever dialogue and humorous lyrics to familiar Broadway songs, it's a nostalgic and funny look back at those college years. In classic Chicago-style theater, Committee of Eight sets just the right tone for a New Year full of exciting entertainment that all can enjoy right here in the Grand.
