Senior Adult Theatre, which speaks to the aging experience in our country, is a rapidly growing area in American theatre. This thesis examines the organizational structure of Senior Theatre USA, the first national festival focusing on the Senior Adult Theatre movement. The organization, planning chronology, execution, and results of the festival are analyzed. An overview of Senior Adult Theatre and the biographies of the main organizers and workshop leaders are also included. The aim is to provide a handbook and historical record for future organizers' referral, observations of the first vital steps in expanding communication and knowledge of the area, and examinations of the differences in the aims of groups represented at the Festival.
