Businesses all over are adapting to life during COVID-19, and non-profits organizations are no exception.

Local children’s theatre company Arts Live has come up with a variety of ways to continue to engage with aspiring young actors, playwrights, costume designers, and theatre enthusiasts while theaters are closed for performances.

Among them, the company has launched a virtual theatre project called “Let’s Create” on their website encouraging young actors to submit 90 second videos of themselves dancing, singing, or doing a monologue. The company takes the raw videos, and edits them for their social media pages.

The theatre company also launched a series called (My)Soloation Video Project: Our Stories to capture 60 second videos to help document life during quarantine.

Other virtual projects include Picture This – Practically Perfect Picture Parodies encouraging recreations of classic photos, Living Room Theatre featuring actors doing readings of classic plays via Zoom, Curtain Up!, a home-produce variety show, and more.

The new content is being posted on the company’s YouTube channel, and other social media.
