Review for Stagebridge, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After spending my whole adult life in San Francisco, I moved to Berkeley with no community to speak of. My new next door neighbor introduced me to Stagebridge and my life has been miraculously Transformed. All the classes and instructors are wonderful, but to me it's the other students, my "peeps", that make it all worthwhile. There are plenty of places in the East Bay especially Berkeley for seniors to find enlightening activities. But for me Stagebridge has just the right mix of people who match my enthusiasm for music, theater, playing , clowning, and storytelling.

My first summer at camp was totally exhausting and life-changing. I came home each evening feeling like I have been gone for a week. The intensity of the experience was incredible.

Now, I attend weekly classes in jazz harmony chorus, musical theater, beginning acting, and scene study. The only puzzle in my mind is why haven't more people heard of Stagebridge? I am here now shouting from the rooftops that this is the best way to age ever! I can't wait to go to the rest home with my new Stagebridge friends.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wish fund-raising weren't such an ongoing downer. Nonprofits everywhere are suffering so I understand that we lost a grant to an organization that feeds senior citizens tummies rather than rather than their minds and souls. It's just a darn shame...
