The Bell Tower Theater is always looking for talented individuals for our productions. If you act, sing or play an instrument, let us know, and maybe next time we’ll see you on the stage. These are not volunteer positions; all performers at the Bell Tower Theater are paid. It’s not a lot of money, but we believe that artists should be compensated for their time and talent.

A comedic salute to those struggling with the effects of gravity on their bodies, of grandchildren on their self-images and of the dating scene on their egos. This laugh-out-loud musical follows the day-to-day concerns of the over-fifty “empty-nesters” crowd, where the ultimate goal is aging gracefully.
