Local Writers Share Prose and Verse with New Route Theatre

Irene Taylor, a member of the New Route Theatre Board of Directors, will lead Word Weavers, a group of local creative writers who happen to be 55 and older, as they share their experiences and life lessons through the the written word. This evening of prose and verse performances -- called Tapestries II -- will take place at 7 pm on Tuesday, December 11, at the New Route Theatre space in the YWCA at 1201 North Hershey Road in Bloomington.

Word Weavers members will share stories that range from "memories of Saturday nights making the circuit between Steak ‘n Shakes in the family car to personal reflections on where we were and how far we’ve come." Featured writers include Joe and Judy Boudreaux, Sheri Brownfield, Joan Crooks, Ruthie Cobb, and Jim and Judy Thorpe.

There is no set admission fee to the performance, but your donations at the door will certainly be accepted. The entrance to New Route's space inside the YWCA is on the lower level on the east side of the building.

To make reservations or ask for more information about Word Weavers, you may contact Irene Taylor at
