Here's how it works:
• Click the name of the Play/Movie on http://www.apollinairetheatre.com/
to get a link to the script.
To read the script you can
- download and print it, or
- read it on a separate phone/ipad/computer, or
- if your screen permits, you can be in the video conference and read it on the same screen.
The Event Begins:
• Log-in to the meeting, by clicking the date of the meeting on http://www.apollinairetheatre.com/
• We will start to gather online in the video meeting room at 7:00pm. (2:30 Sunday)
-- We would normally provide refreshments, but since Zoom doesn't give us the option to hand you a glass of wine, we suggest having your own snacks and drinks at the ready.
• When you join, please click the chat button and let us know if you are interested in reading a major role, smaller role, or being part of the audience.
• At 7:30 (3:00 Sunday) sharp we'll draw names, you'll pick your role, and we'll read!
• Following the reading, we'll stay on line for a half hour for folks who'd like to discuss the play/film.
No worries if you are not among the technologically gifted. We're as new to this as you are, and there's sure to be some glitchiness at first, but with a bit of humor and perseverance we'll make this work!
Looking forward to reading with you!!
