Zoomlets

Announcing Zoomlets, our new series of virtual table reads that invite you to be a “fly on the wall” at a virtual first rehearsal.

The series will offer a look inside the process of how a director and actors work together. You will see directors share their vision for the play and give the actors a few words of inspiration. Then, the actors will embark on the journey of reading the play together for the first time. Finally, the actors and director will discuss their reactions to the text and what their next goals might be.

These plays will be short 15-20 minute-long scripts or scenes from newly commissioned plays.

Upcoming Zoomlets:
