Ecstatic Theatrics Zoom Script Readings
are open to all. I have LOTS of scripts.
You may see them at www.theaterfunscripts.com -- Tell me any you want to read online.
To join a Zoom Script Reading:
Register by emailing me, Jeannette Jaquish, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Tell me your phone number and if there are times not to call.
- Select the Session(s) you want to join from the list below.
I will call you to ask how many actors, and to tell you your password.
I will email you the script and the link for your session.
After I talk to each family, I will tell you your role(s), which may change.
[Connecting a phone number with each personal password discourages misbehavior during the online event.]
Once you are registered, with your password and link:
-- Get your computer/or phone positioned, and lighting and microphone and chairs for all your readers prepared.
-- Print out your script read the whole thing and highlight your part.
-- If you want -- not required -- gather props, set pieces and wear a costume.
-- Link in 10 to 5 minutes before the session to download your Zoom app and be let into the online Zoom meeting.
-- This will be fun. We will do quick introductions, and I will describe the story and how the scene fits in. We will read it a few times and try to do it without scripts before our session ends. I may edit it for best stuff and play it on Youtube.
-- When isolation restrictions are reduced, you may want to perform at the Twistful Meadow.
-- When the pandemic is over, you may want to perform onstage with Ecstatic Theatrics at TekVenture, or put on your own show.
