Adapting Works for Socially Distanced and/or Virtual Performance
Friday, January 8, 2021 at 4:30pm ET
In the room this week are writers Betsy Kelso and David Nehls of The Great American Trailer Park Musical. The discussion will cover the unique challenge of adjusting "live" material for these times and the importance of staying open to whatever different theaters feel is right for their market.
From Bob Ost, executive director of TRU: "Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all TRU live events are being reformatted for virtual participation. We created the weekly Community Gatherings to both minimize isolation and share information within the community. Stay positive, test negative, be safe!" Videos of past Community Gatherings can also be viewed on TRU's YouTube channel: youtube.com/channel/UC43rsChi4fA23dNLeloaF_A/.
