Creativity has no expiry date! ™

Western Gold Theatre is the premier company in the country focused on sharing and celebrating the talents of senior professional theatre artists (age 55+). Western Gold also mentors emerging younger professional artists as they ‘share the boards’ with us. We are a vibrant creative gathering place for artists and audiences, young and old.

Theatre is not a “job” where you punch a clock daily and then collect a gold watch on your 65th birthday— theatre people do not retire! Like good wine or a robust stew, we get better with age. As we simmer, our flavour deepens, we are more nuanced, more capable of being brave, better able to face challenging work. And one thing is for sure, older people are the best storytellers ever! We celebrate this.
