A new partnership was formed as Morning Pointe of Tuscaloosa (AL) received a visit from the University of Alabama Department of Theatre and Dance. Under the direction of associate professor Stacy Alley, four UA students performed for the residents of the assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community, singing songs from musicals like Singin’ in the Rain and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, old-fashioned hymns, and much more.
“These young people put on a fantastic show!” exclaims life enrichment director Karla Barksdale. “Our residents had so much fun, and the students have already promised to visit again soon. We are very grateful to be able to partner with UA!”
Morning Pointe of Tuscaloosa prides itself on its strong network of community partnerships. If you are interested in partnering with Morning Pointe, contact community relations director Sarah Pederson at (205) 345-1112 or by email at tuscaloosa-crd@morningpointe.com.
