Embracing the medium that is currently available to us for collaboration, Dr. Bethany Reeves led a virtual scene study workshop on the basics of acting for the camera last semester. A varied group of short plays were then selected for workshop actors, rehearsed, and recorded online. Several participants with campus access were cast in pieces which were staged and filmed at DeBaun Auditorium.  We are proud to present these nine plays in two parts:
