Time of Your Life Players presents “Bud’s Café Redux,” a new, original one act musical comedy. Bud and his scheming girlfriend Clarice were happily hosting the regulars at Bud’s Café when out of the blue a telephone call from Bud’s lawyer threw their lives into turmoil!

Due to the highly dramatic content of this presentation, no one 60 years of age and over will be admitted without the written consent of their cardiologist.

There will be special Friday night shows at 7:30p.m. November 14th and 21st.

In 2004 a group of seniors aged 55 and over formed the Time of Your Life Players. Our group of writers, directors, actors, singers and musicians is dedicated to educate and entertain from a senior perspective, and to demonstrate one can lead a creative life at any age. The cast will be available for a post-show discussion at the end of each performance. The topic of the post-show discussions will be of interest to people of all ages.
