There are so many wonderful trips and Watermark University classes for residents to enjoy here at The Watermark, but one of the favorites by far is our Senior Stage Workshop. This workshop gives our residents many opportunities to stretch their creative muscles and learn more about theatrical production, while also giving them some valuable time in the spotlight. After months of preparation, our residents presented a beautiful tribute to “The Greatest Generation” with a review of the music and humor of World War II. This production was particularly meaningful because the concept came from our beloved late resident, Spencer Anderson. He was passionate about honoring the Watermark residents who are also WWII Veterans, and he put many hours of research into preparing for the production. The Watermark Players honored his memory and contribution by wearing silver Parkinson’s Awareness ribbons and recognizing his hard work during the performance.
“The Greatest Generation” included some favorite songs from the WWII era, including “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree”, “I’ll Be Seeing You”, “Roll Me Over in the Clover”, and “The White Cliffs of Dover” as well as the official songs of each military branch. One of the highlights of every Senior Stage production is the cameo made by our very own Executive Director, Jennifer Tapner. See the video of her making her debut as Rosie the Riveter!
We look forward to every Senior Stage Workshop production. If you or your loved one want to participate in the next production, please be sure to attend the Senior Stage Workshop Watermark University classes on Wednesdays at 10:30am in the Auditorium.
