The Grand Junction Senior Theatre is gearing up for the 2020 season. If you're over the age of 50, you should give serious consideration to joining. Here are my top five reasons why.

The Grand Junction Senior Theatre program is absolutely fantastic. To date, I've seen several of their plays, and they are always top-notch. Several of my friends share their talents with the organization.
