    Hello hive  mind,  looking  for some feedback on what plays you think would work well Performing over digital platforms....actors in separate locations with video camera or web cam...ala zoom or other platforms.
    I think SORRY WRONG NUMBER is perfect...any other suggestions?

    We are doing Radium Girls this weekend via Live stream. It's worked out wonderfully. I think my biggest piece of advice is to secure the rights early, because this streaming thing is new for the publishers too and they don't always have streaming rights available and they're working out the kinks in their own new contracts and may throw a wrench at you at the last minute.

    Thank you! Would love to watch what you do with that script as it is one I have always considered. Thank you for sharing, Melissa Wood!

    In my Acting classes, we did Action News from playscripts.com.  This is in a news broadcast format and is flexible in cast size with each actor playing several roles.  I also let each actor create one commercial and one special report.  This worked very well for us. I put it together using iMovie.  We did it as something that was just shared within the classroom rather than in a public platform.

    The directors at Assumption High School in Louisville, KY did a zoom version of A Midsummer Night's Dream.  The directors are now preparing a book on how to produce an effective zoom play. Their names are Doug Sumy and Andrew Stairs.
