EAC’s Children’s Theater Workshop has responded to building closure with a graceful pivot and plan for an online continuation of the group’s Alice in Wonderland production, originally planned for a May performance. “Of course the show will look very different,” said Mark Macey, director of the play. “We’ll continue to use the story of Alice in Wonderland as a jumping off point, but the experience will be much more fluid and less prescribed.”
Macey wrote group members last week announcing plans, including video lessons to be posted each week. Cast and crew members have been challenged to submit assignments in response to each week’s lesson, whether in audio, video or word document format.
The final product to be shared will be a compilation of participants’ submissions, “A sort of tapestry that I’ll arrange and then stream on YouTube for the participants and the community,” said Macey.
