Jarice Hanson Performs Scenes from Shirley Valentine

Thursday November 9

2:00pm-4:00pm

GCC Downtown

Part of our Senior Symposia program for people over 50. All workshops are $10. Online registration available!

Willy Russell’s romantic comedy Shirley Valentine, starring Pauline Collins, debuted on the London stage in 1986. It was an immediate popular and critical success. When the show traveled to Broadway, Collins won a Tony for “Best Actress,” and Shirley Valentine was named “Best Play.” In 1989 Collins won an Oscar for her movie performance of the lonely, middle-aged housewife from Liverpool who dreams of her youth and of finding love again. Over the years, many actresses “of a certain age” in the U.K. and the U.S. have found success—and joy—in sharing Shirley’s story of transformation and the acceptance of aging while holding on to one’s dreams. Jarice Hanson started her acting career in Chicago and for the last 30 years has been performing regionally from New York to Maine. Locally, she has appeared at the Academy of Music, the New Century Theater, and the Majestic Theater. She is a member of Actor’s Equity, the professional union of stage actors, and SAG-AFTRA, the union for film and television.
