Stray Katz Theater Troupe Founder To Discuss Her Second Act
WATERBURY — When Kate Katcher found herself forced out of her job at age 57, she took a step right into a new career. The Newtown resident founded Stray Kats Theatre, and began — among other projects — a series of productions devoted to pieces about life after “a certain age,” created and performed by people of a certain age.
The public is invited to hear how Ms Katcher cleverly reinvented herself as the founder and artistic director of theater troupe. The Palace Theater will host Ms Katcher on Saturday, February 1, for the next presentation of the theater’s 2nd Act series. Her program is titled “Things To Do When (They Say) You Can’t.”
2nd Act is a monthly storytelling series featuring ordinary people sharing the extraordinary things they are doing in the second half, or act, of their lives. Inspirational, experiential, and comical, these after-50 life stories have ignited the imagination of previous attendees who are also joining (or will eventually) the growing community of “Second Acters.”
The event begins at noon and includes brunch. Presentations are 45-60 minutes, followed by Q&A with the audience.
2nd Act is presented in the intimate space of the Poli Club, on the second floor of the theater, 100 East Main Street.
Tickets are $25 ($20 for OLLI or AARP members); a cash bar will be available. Reservations are available through palacetheaterct.org, by calling 203-346-2000, or in person at the box office.
The theater is at 100 East Main Street in Waterbury.
