The Augusta Players is thrilled to announce our brand new “a.r.t.s” Program!

The Augusta Players is thrilled to announce our brand new “a.r.t.s” Program! Augusta Readers Theatre for Senior Citizens is bringing the experience of theatre to those who may not want to memorize a script and those with limited mobility. Without the need to memorize, and with little to no movement required we open the stage for those aged 55 & up.

This free program meets three times a month for rehearsal and concludes with a public performance. Each short story is about 10 minutes long and each session contains 4 different short stories for rehearsal and performance.
