Little Theatre turns to video conferencing
Woy Woy Little Theatre has turned to video conferencing to produce a suite of Flash virtual play readings.
The first performance was held on Monday, April 27, with a reading Rinse the Blood Off My Toga, a 1954 radio comedy sketch written by Canadian comedy duo Wayne and Shuster.
The sketch reinvents Shakespeare's Julius Caesar as a parodic noir-detective story, where private eye Flavius Maximus is hired to find the murderer of the Roman ruler.
A total of 40 people, including actors, directors and audience members, joined the video conference.
The Little Theatre is now planning to run further performances every second Wednesday night at 7:30 pm, starting this Wednesday, May 6.
The theatre company is open to involving more actors and directors, as well as audience members.
It is also looking for more plays and sketches to perform.
