Building community through play and laughter
Golden Firefly participants connect weekly to work with professional actors and artist instructors. Together in-person and online they open their imaginations and develop their sense of play through theatre games, acting exercises, improvisations, and stories.
Each participant writes their own original story with the help of an artist instructor. Together the group explores different ways bring each story to life – by acting them out together, storytelling or through puppetry and props.
Originally delivered indoors at Senior Centres and in our theatre, we all boldly moved Golden Firefly online with the start of COVID restrictions. Now we’re delighted to reconnect in-person again AND online. The fun will ALWAYS go on!
What they say about the Golden Firefly Project
- “Everyone has a story. They just need someone to hear it.” (Participant)
- “Although Firefly is an inclusive, non-judgemental class, it took me a L-O-N-G- time to develop even an ounce of confidence, now I realise, how valuable the Firefly program is, on a number of levels, not least of which is neighbours meeting neighbours for the first time and the camaraderie that comes from that.” (Participant)
- “I started, with a feeling of scared frozen, was definitely more an observer than a doer, later to realise the Firefly Program was thought provoking, entertaining and fun! (Participant)
- “(I learned) that I can overcome memory, reading, breathing difficulties – improved self-confidence.” (Participant)
- “The program was very much in demand and highly successful in decreasing the social isolation of seniors in the community and improving their quality of life.” (Senior Centre Representative)
