Arthur Newman Theatre
The Joslyn Center has a steadfast and ongoing commitment to bringing the performing arts to seniors and the community at large.
In 1999, The Joslyn Players were formed as a company of actors, singers and dancers. During its history, The Joslyn Players created a dramatic and musical theatre organization whose primary goal was to provide a forum for the development and performance of plays, musical revues and book musicals which were performed predominantly by seniors 55 and older who were both professional and non-professional actors.
On March 23 of 2008, The Joslyn Center Theatre was rededicated and renamed The Arthur Newman Theatre in tribute to long-time Board Member and Joslyn Players supporter Arthur Newman. Today this vibrant theater plays host to a variety of community theater groups, performers and a diverse array of artists as well as educational programs.
The Joslyn Center is dedicated to bringing relevant learning experiences for seniors in a fun and engaging manner by offering educational and interactive workshops and classes in the preforming arts. From classic play reading to “Seniors on Stage”- senior theatre thrives. It's challenging, rewarding and fun. With all this vibrancy, it's a great time to be in senior theatre!
