Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare
QUILL THEATRE, AGECROFT HALL

June 2–26, 2016 (Opening Night: June 4)
Directed by Steve Perigard. In this captivating comedy, love is an overwhelming force of nature that sweeps us away in a flood of longing. Shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria, Viola grieves for her lost twin brother, and disguises herself as a boy to serve the Count Orsino, with whom she falls hopelessly in love. The passionate Countess Olivia also falls in love—with what she thinks is Orsino’s handsome young page. With some of Shakespeare’s most beloved comic characters, including the imperious Malvolio, idiotic Andrew Aguecheek and drunken Sir Toby Belch, life in Illyria is a sublime whirligig of hopes and blunders, disguises and ruses, songs and silliness. Agecroft Hall – 4305 Sulgrave Road, Richmond, VA 23221.

Gerontology in the Primary Grades: Teaching About Aging Through Children’s Books
MAST AUDITORIUM, LUCY CORR VILLAGE

Contrary to popular wisdom, aging is a complex process of remarkable variability. Children deserve to be exposed to this multi-dimensional mix so that their expectations of others and for their own aging are not narrow or constrained. The presenter has developed six stand alone modules that use children’s literature as a medium to introduce basic concepts of gerontology, including individuation, the life course and transitions. The children’s books referenced are typically classified as JP (Juvenile Picture) or ER (Easy Reader) and are currently in active circulation in city and county library systems. The program will be presented by Edward F. Ansello, PhD with the Virginia Center on Aging. 6800 Lucy Corr Blvd., Chesterfield, 23832. 9:00-10:00am. Business meeting: 10:00-10:300am.
