2020-2021 THEATRE SEASON
Flexible options for an uncertain time.
The Covid 19 pandemic has caused great uncertainty.
As a result, we can only plan one show at a time. We are first preparing a show that will be performed completely through Zoom. After that, there are many options that will combine remote rehearsal, performance and viewing of shows with in person rehearsal, performance and viewing as district, city, county and state regulations allow.
All options include a safe and an even safer version. In other words, even after this first show, even if we decide upon safe procedures for in-person rehearsals and performances, students may still choose to participate remotely.
Please see the video at right for more information.
Drive In or Stream Double Feature
October 8, 10 and 12 - 7:30pm
Two one act plays written for remote performance. Presented in a streaming video format and...in our own drive in movie theater.
See below for descriptions of the plays.
Do You Read Me?
by Kathryn Funkhauser
Everyone at NASA thinks that Dr. Weaver's Mars colony is a joke, because it's full of average joes instead of astronauts. Their mission? To grow the first eggplant on Mars. As Dr. Weaver takes reports from the self-appointed experts, disappointed sci-fi fans, and customer service nightmares that inhabit the colony under the leadership of the arrogant Commander, the mission starts to seem impossible. But could there be more to the story than they're letting on? Written especially for actors to perform on video chat, Do You Read Me? is a space comedy about community.

What's it like to be awake when the rest of your world is asleep? Meet an early-morning jogger, a radio DJ whose show may have an audience of none, a modern Romeo and Juliet, the author of a most unusual letter, and many other teen characters as they search for connection in the magic hour. Through a series of connected scenes and monologues, join them on their journey as they discover whether the monster under the bed is real and collectively wonder...is there anybody out there?
