Since 1988, New Wrinkles has been entertaining thousands in the Central Valley with their unique blend of music, dance, comedy, and more – all performed by a talented volunteer cast aged 55 and older.
Proud to be a Fresno tradition for over 30 years
New Wrinkles started in November 1988 with a newspaper advertisement seeking seniors (age 55 plus) interested in performing in a senior variety show. Since that time, the show has grown to become a tradition in Fresno area entertainment, being cited as “one of the year’s top 20 arts and cultural offerings” in 2007 by Fresno Bee critic Donald Munro.
From its earliest beginnings, the New Wrinkles Company has always been a multifaceted family of seniors experiencing the energetic camaraderie involved in creating entertainment excellence. Over the years, many talented seniors have assembled for the yearly shows. Life-long friendships have formed and endured.
