FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (May 30, 2017) – The Peaks, a leading senior living community in Flagstaff and Northern Arizona, is partnering for the third annual year with Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) to host a one-week multi-generational summer theatre camp. This year’s play, “Gulliver’s Travels,” will have performances on Fri, June 9 at 6:30 p.m. and Sat., June 10, at 3:00 p.m. Casting for “Gulliver’s Travels” include students from the community and seniors residents from The Peaks to create a truly multi-generational performance group of ages six and older.

The intergenerational summer theatre camp is made possible by Ages EnwtinedTM, which helps bring generations together to create meaningful interactions, and an opportunity for sharing wisdom, mentoring and socializing.

“We are excited to join forces with Missoula Children’s Theatre for this special event,” said Janet Mars, executive director of The Peaks. “We see that both generations benefit from the interaction, and the children develop confidence, skills and self-esteem, as well as meaningful relationships with our residents.”
