Thank you, Molly. There will be 15-20 minutes at the end where music of old favorites is played on the piano, and I will be walking around, encouraging our audience and hopefully engaging them. There will be interaction during the opening 10 minutes, and then a 15 minute play that we hope will bring smiles and laughter for them. We are Master Actors who trained and worked with the late Burt Reynolds, so we do feel we can be entertaining. Of course, none of these times is written in stone. They could be a little longer--or a little shorter--depending on how our audience is receiving or engaging with us. A good entertainer is always aware of audience reaction.

Thank you, Elisa. Since we want to bring smiles and happiness to residents, all information is very helpful. We would be engaging residents during the welcome at the beginning and also at the end. In the middle there will be a little something for them to watch, and hopefully enjoy.

An RN mentioned to me that when it comes to gatherings to watch live entertainment (music, readers theatre, singing, etc) the residents get tired or bored after about 30-45 minutes. Is that time frame about correct?

Thank you, Solange. Those all sound like good ideas and I will give them some serious thought!

I am an actor, trained by Burt Reynolds at the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre. He was my coach and mentor for 6 years prior to his passing. He mentioned a few times that he would like to see us (a scene partner and me) do something for nursing homes in our area. We are trying to get together a program that would start with a few minutes of engaging our Assisted Living audience, a short play, followed by a few minutes of music if a piano is available, along with singing, clapping, even dancing if they would like. What I am looking for is a short 5-10 minute activity that would engage and involve our audience upon arriving. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
