Senior citizens who are confined by physical limitations and/or institutional life need to connect with other people and can be refreshed through the energy that comes with interacting in a playful, creative manner with others. This fall, in Principles of Drama Therapy, Professor Sally Bailey has linked Kansas State University students with seniors at a local retirement community to start a seniors theatre group. The team is creating an autobiographical original play/video production to enhance the social relatedness, sensory awareness, verbal skills, and creativity of the seniors. The students get to apply their skills learned in class and gain a first-hand taste of the joys and frustrations of leading a drama therapy group.
