"Umbrella" Silver Kite's Intergenerational Theatre Company Performance
Silver Kite Community Arts is proud to present its original intergenerational theatre production of "Umbrella" on January 20 & 21 at 7:30 pm at the Seattle Armory Black Box Theatre.

Based on the life stories of the Intergenerational Theatre Company (ITC) members (ages 17 - 80), the performance explores the commonalities and differences among generations by the telling of the cast's life experiences through music, dance, dramatic and comedic scenes, and monologues.

By using the common object of an umbrella, the cast used a unique process of dramatic play, reminiscence, and storytelling to create the performance.  Some of the themes explored in the piece include:  opening / closing, family, shelter, hiding, protection, and home.  

The 5 men and women in Silver Kite's ITC each represent a different decade of life, bringing unique experiences and insights onto the stage.

Cast members in "Umbrella" include:

Patty Zeitlin, age 80
Homer Henderson, age 66
Xanne Sarka, age 49
Ben Symons, age 24
Elizabeth Ombrellaro, age 17

The performance has been on tour to retirement communities, community centers, and other organizations since November 2016.  Over 250 people have already seen the production on tour.

"Umbrella" is produced with generous support from 4Culture.


Silver Kite's Intergenerational Theatre Company creates life changing performances which bridge generations and create deep connections with audiences.

Our theatre productions are original performances created by the members of our Intergenerational Theatre Company (ITC), using the company's life experiences and life stories as a source for the development of scenes, songs, and movement sequences.
