The Perennials - Ageless Improv

The Perennials improv troupe challenges assumptions and stereotypes about aging. We're a group of women in our 70s who create light-hearted entertainment by weaving songs, scenes, and rhymes into our performances—all made up on the spot! We invite our audiences to suggest topics for us to  use in scenes and to join us onstage in games and stories. Each show is a World Premiere that has never been seen before and will never be seen again!

Our members have performed at residences for elders, senior centers, conferences, fundraisers, and improv festivals in the Bay Area. Some feedback we’ve received about our performances:

You made our day! Many folks at the gathering said they
werein a funk with 
the gray weather, but the Perennials
brightened our day with lively song, 
creative poems and just plain silliness. 
It was the most fun I've had in a long, long time.

Thank you all for bringing your energy, light,
and laughter to our community.

You are welcome to return at any time!
