Santa Monica College’s Emeritus Acting Troupe is pleased to announce its performance, “Conversations: Scenes from Film and Theater.”

The performance is free and will be held online as a live virtual event at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 17. A Zoom link at the July 17 event listing at takes guests directly to the online event.

The performance, which features students in SMC’s Emeritus acting classes, will showcase silly, serious, and quirky scenes that inspire, entertain, and offer something to think about.

“The Emeritus players have put a lot of time and energy into this performance,” said Dean of Noncredit and External Programs Dr. Scott Silverman. “And after a tumultuous year that kept us all socially distant, ‘Conversations: Scenes from Film and Theater’ is the kind of re-engagement we need. I’m sure it will entertain and delight everybody who attends.”

SMC’s widely praised Emeritus program, founded by Santa Monica College in 1975 to serve the lifelong learning interests of older adults, offers more than 120 noncredit adult education classes and special programs that serve more than 3,000 students each year.
