Theatrical Play Brings Awareness to Fall Prevention

For older adults, falls are the leading cause of death due to injury. In 2018, Pinellas County Fire/EMS responded to over 27,000 calls for falls with Largo units responding to over 4,000 of them. 

To help spread awareness in our community, Largo Fire Rescue has partnered with SAGES (Senior Actors Guild & Education Services) to present a free performance of Denying Gravity on April 27 from 2-3:30pm at the Largo Community Center.

This unique educational play features "Claire," a woman choosing to live life her way and let the "chips and hips" fall where they may. Filled with comedy, drama and education, this play will help to provide knowledge to our at-risk population about preventing falls.

Though this is a free event, seating is limited and ticket reservations are required. Reserve your tickets online. For more information, contact SAGES at 727-536-7076.

The Largo Community Center is located at 400 Alt Keene Road in Largo.
