Second Chance

Rita and Evelyn are neighbors who share a 25-year friendship. Rita has asked Evelyn to come over and anxiously awaits her arrival. Rita asks a favor of Evelyn, after her “big reveal!” A thought provoking conversation ensues, as they explore the underlying theme that one is never too old to grow and one should not feel guilty when pursuing their dreams in spite of disapproval—thus allowing their second chance.

Cemetery Club

Threewidows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husband's graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life, Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun, and Doris is priggish and judgmental; particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. He meets the widows while visiting his wife's grave. Doris and Lucille squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida. They are guilt stricken when this nearly breaks Ida's heart.

Working

The hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this unique, extraordinary musical. That the everyday lives of common men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock.

Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman and the housewife, just to name a few. It's a highly original look at the American landscape that is simply impossible to forget.

A little about our Partners:

The Speeding Theatre—Over 55 was formed in Fall 2011 by a group of former participants in the UNLV Senior Adult Theatre Program who wanted to provide senior adults with opportunities to continue their pursuit of art, culture, socialization and giving to the community. It is the first and only senior theatre company to have been granted a corporate charter in Nevada and was granted nonprofit 501 (c) (3) status by the Internal Revenue Service in 2012.

The Speeding Theatre—Over 55 (TST) celebrates and empowers older adults to contribute to the benefit and enjoyment of the greater Las Vegas community through participation in quality theatrical productions. There are weekly TST workshops that provide opportunities for participants to hone their performance and other theatre-related skills; scheduled outreach variety shows in senior facilities; and, when and where possible, dramatic productions are mounted.

TST always welcomes new participants who are interested in performing and/or in some of the many behind-the- scenes activities required to mount quality theatrical productions.

TST’s exciting new collaboration with SUPER SUMMER THEATRE is enabling TST, for the first time, to project a season of theatrical events at their Valley View location that will be open to the public. It will also enable TST to become involved in more intergenerational theatre.

Speeding Theatre—Over 55 invites you to “Get a Ticket”!!
