About this Event

Join our effort to raise awareness and fight the stigma of memory loss. This virtual Remember Project event is hosted by our prestigious partner, Theatre in the Circle, as part of our Fall 2020 tour. Watch the short play "Steering into the Skid," and participate in the Dementia-Friendly Communities movement, learn about resources in the Cleveland area, and meet with others who are interested in learning more while supporting those who live with dementia.

Danette plays Amanda and Jim as Tim in this one act play that follows the story of a loving couple's journey with memory loss over the course of a year. Twelve short scenes, one for each month, help audiences connect with the subtle changes that impact Tim and Amanda starting and ending on New Year's Eve.

Event date: Tuesday November 24th, 2020

The Remember Project in Cleveland is hosted by the ONLY professional theatre company in the United States located within a retirement community. Theatre in the Circle produces and presents live performances as the resident theater company of Cleveland’s Judson Manor. Open to the Greater Cleveland community at large, Theatre in the Circle offers fully realized productions each season, a mixture of new work and beloved musicals that resonate with the lives and histories of Clevelanders. Plays are performed by local theater artists as well as Equity actors in Judson Manor’s ballroom, a barrier-free venue that seats 130.

Judson Manor provides retirement living in a beautifully restored hotel, which opened as a luxury residential hotel in 1923. It catered to Severance Hall musicians, business and political leaders and celebrities visiting Cleveland. Guests included Dwight D. Eisenhower, Walt Disney and Jack Benny. Its grand ballroom now serves as a performance space thanks to the creativity and experience of Theatre in the Circle founders Mark and Bill Corcoran who wanted to do something about theatre offerings

Theatre in the Circle upholds the philosophy of empowering seniors to take control of their lives by providing them with smart choices for successful aging.

The Remember Project is a program of the Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging.
