    Dude, It’s Boulder! Show Returns To Local Stage KGNU News

Viva Theater is a Boulder community theater group dedicated to encouraging healthy, vibrant aging through creative expression including providing older adults opportunities to participate in the arts as performers, learners and audience.

“I think what Viva Theater does is really very, very valuable. We started out as a senior theater, a theater for older people. We had some people on the stage with us who had never been on the stage before, and never performed before, but who are alone…  and by the end of the production their lives have changed because they’re involved in something that’s creative, that’s fun, that creates community.” – Steve Grad, Viva Theater Board Member
