    Hi,
     I am rehearsing our fall production of a Midsummer night's dream. Today was another rehearsal with two or more students in the theatre and two or more students on line. Yesterday we tried something new , after one student's internet crashed for the third time and I wanted to be able to have one pair working on one scene and the other two working on their scene. In desperation I said can you face time with her and you FaceTime with him?  They said it was possible! Oiw and behold we had actors talking to each other....they could see each other....they could move around and not worry about being to far from the mic of the computer!!! It was the best rehearsal of it's kind so far!!!! We did it today too.  Has anyone else tried this? It really works!!!

    Cathy,

    Way to solve the problem. Their are other "chat room" video formats that use the phone.
