Redlands - This is your Life

Diane and I recently joined the camera club of the Redlands' U3A (University of the 3rd Age) and we attend the monthly meetings of like-minded amateur photographers. Well, word got out that I am also a videographer, so the 'Footlight' theatre company also part of U3A, asked me if I could video their annual musical, this year called 'Redlands, this is your Life'. I enlisted the help of Diane and another videographer also called Bill, and armed with 3 cameras, we decended upon their stage in Cleveland and filmed the production.

The two Bills are setting up the cameras

Filming the musical

The final song of the musical

The production was fabulous. The entire compamy is made up of senior citizens some over 80 years old, but boy, can they still belt out a tune.


  1. It was a good show and I so admire their courage and stamina as well as their talent. Go the oldies!

  2. BB

    You and DB never fail to amaze. Will the lot of us at Des Alpes do a musical number for your Blog? Let's see "The Gypsy Rose Number" - "Let Me Entertain You, Let me Make you Cry" - Good heavens, I will be able to display my "expensive yellow dacks" for all to see!
    God help the viewers!
    Then again, a song from something a bit more becoming of our age (?) - "The Desert Song" or dress up as nuns and do the "Nuns Chorus".
    Just a thought - I always wanted to be a "star"????????????
    Great work

  3. Looks like they are having fun. What did they sound like?

  4. I need a class like that. So much about photography I don't know.

  5. How did your movie turn out in the end Dad? I love the sound of the university for the 3rd age. Great idea. I'll bet you have a great time! We're looking forward to seeing the results.
