Celebrating our 20th Anniversary Season 2022-2023

Theatrical Opportunities for Seniors

Golden Guild, made up of passionate volunteer performers and technicians, takes entertainment straight to senior activity centers and residences and creates opportunities for connection through performing songs, skits, old-time radio programs, and comedy routines.

Golden Guild’s vision is to be a space where the arts community contributes to building a culture in which people are encouraged and enabled to live productively and with dignity through creating an inclusive space for volunteers and audience members.

Golden Guild’s premier season began in 2002 with an ambitious schedule that included two one-act plays; “The Diary of Adam and Eve” directed by Jan Huff (Program Coordinator Amy Behrens, and Assistant Director Kay Driver). “The Golden Guild Revue,” was an original concept created by JoAnn Pobocik, Tracey Kempsell and John McPeak. Many initial Golden Guild organizers, actors, and technicians return year after year to bring live theatre to senior citizens, assisted living facilities, and nursing home facilities.

How It All Began

Golden Guild’s premier season began in 2001 with an ambitious schedule that included two one-act plays - “The Diary of Adam and Eve” directed by Jan Huff (program coordinator Amy Behrens, assistant director Kay Driver), and “I’m Herbert” with Buster Harper and Ruth Stormer - and the Golden Guild Revue, an original concept created by JoAnn Pobocik and Tracey Kempsell.

Community volunteers return year after year as actors and technicians to bring live theatre to area senior citizen activity centers and assisted living and care facilities.

The joyful success of Golden Guild continues as multi-talented volunteers create annual programs filled with music and stellar performances. Creating fond memories of the days when radio ruled the airways, Golden Guild leaves its home at the Midland Center for the Arts to bring the excitement and fun of live theatre to community audiences.
