On March 21, 2010, Indian River Charter High School’s Performing Arts Department is taking their production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on the road. The performance officially opens April 1st and runs through April 3rd at The Theater Guild in Vero Beach but the cast of Joseph is taking two of the more popular numbers, Any Dream Will Do and Song of the King, to the residents and guests of By The River. The public is invited to attend the performance at 2:00 p.m. at By the River, located at 11070 Ganga Way off Roseland Road in Sebastian. Guests may also take a tour of this new affordable, independent residential community for 41 low-income, frail seniors ages 62 and over.

Kyle Kelly, Actor“When I was acting full time, I would often perform at senior living homes because, as a performer, you cannot find a more receptive audience,” said Michael Naffziger, Director of Theatre for IRCH. This ‘preview performance’ will allow the students to test out their ‘stage legs,’ start a buzz about the show, and most importantly, provide fun and engaging entertainment for the residents of By The River.”

By the River offers a full spectrum of programs designed to keep seniors active and engaged in life, including intergenerational activities, volunteer opportunities, art and music classes, health lectures, fitness plans, yoga and day trips. Area seniors are welcomed to attend many of the programs offered.
