This is for the Arts Awards campaign. . Imagination Theater is absolutely wonderful! The performers create an environment that allows their audience to express freely w/o hesitation or reservation. The actors are able to create a comfortable setting for the seniors to share their own memories, tap into their imaginations, sing out proud and stron,g and experience an afternoon of joy and laughter, all while feeling as if they really are an integral part of the performance themselves. Our audience members are generally struggling w/serious and complex health issues, however when our patients receive a visit from Imagination Theater, it's evident that the benefits are seen a mile away, not only during the program, but also the rest of the day as well as the rest of their stay in the hosptial. Being a part of the experience provides so many advantages - seen and unseen. If permists the healthy part of the patients personality to emerge and continue to function, giving hope and determination to be well again. It helps to improve morale, self-exteem and deviop a feeling of belonging. Even patients w/dementia benefit as it allows them to reminisce and tap into the memories they have, offering stimulatation, personal ejoyment and life satisfaction. IT knows what they are doing. . they truly offer a therapeutic experience! Pam Murphy, RMT, AD
