Show description: Everything your Granny told you about assisted living? Forget it! From early retirement right up to the pulling of the plug, 21st Century seniors are partying like it’s 1969. Imagine: no work, no pregnancy, and a full array of Medicare-subsidized pharmaceuticals. They are partying at Pelican Roost, the full-service retirement community that is home to 18 hysterical characters. Assisted Living: The Musical is not just for old people any more than Oklahoma! is just for cowboys, Gypsy is for Romanians, or Rent is for people who don’t own their own homes. It’s a show for everyone who is aging or hopes to do so someday. You’ll see your parents, your friends, and maybe some of yourself.

Show dates: September 5–8, 12–15, 2019
