    Greetings, all!

    I know that this request has been hashed over many times, but, as a retired theater teacher, I haven't needed theater games tat can be played over Zoom-until now!
    What suggestions do you have?

    With gratitude,

    Hello Nancy and all of you wonderful Community Contributors, 
    I am leading a workshop this week for EdTA Theatre Ed Pro, which is participatory on Zoom. It involves an hour's worth of ensemble experiences for engagement at a distance. Participants receive the script of the experiences so that they can be tweaked for their use with middle, high school, actors of many ages-including senior actors. 

    Hope that you can attend.

    Stage Write looks interesting.  The company says to share your screen over Zoom.  Has anyone used the web based software over Google Meet or Microsoft Teams?  Thanks

    It also occurs to me that one could do very similar things using a JamBoard or dry erase board.  I think the stage management and planning features look interesting as well.  Thanks for sharing the idea.
