Webinar Banner 1024x1024Watch Zoom Theatre's free webinars on the lessons we’ve learned mounting ten live plays on Zoom in thirteen months. 

We want to share. After over a year online, with 11,000 hours on Zoom rehearsing and performing for 4,000 audience members, Zoom Theatre would like to share what we’ve learned about producing, staging and presenting eleven live shows and events during the pandemic. Learn from our success and mistakes! Watch these two free webinars and we'll share what we learned while creating one of the most successful live digital theatres in the world.

Childhood best friends, Glory Zico and P.K. Whylde, meet in a wild night of dreams to unravel their complex friendship, battle their sadness, and, ultimately, face a looming, dark truth. Throughout the wild ride, Z and P.K. visit their worst fears and challenge one another and themselves as they transform into figures from their lives and imaginations.

In July of 2020, New York Times critic Laura Collins-Hughes wrote an article entitled "Digital Theater Isn’t Theater. It’s a Way to Mourn Its Absence.” I must respectfully disagree.

Photos from the Zoom Theatre October 2020 production of COLLECTIVE RAGE by Jen Silverman! Directed by Jane Reagan, the cast of Meredith Ham, Oliva Dumaine, Tatiana Gil, Cortunay Minor, and Krystal Glover this “full-tilt lesbian / bi-curious / genderqueer / Shakespearean comedy for everyone,” followed five different people named Betty as they collide at the intersection of anger, sex, and the “Thea-Tah.” Performed entirely live and entirely on Zoom, none of the cast or crew were ever in the same location during rehearsal or performance.

"I pray you, remember the porter".  Zoom Theatre (a part of Marin Summer Theater) has started a GoFundMe campaign inspired by the famous line from Macbeth and a bit of stage business performed by actor David Farmer.  Zoom Theatre has already produced 4 fully staged productions for over 2,000 audience members.  The funds raised through the GoFundMe will help us continue to produce live theatre for the duration of the pandemic.

Remember the porter, and donate to our GoFundMe here.

Zoom Logo LRGDear Zoom Communications - Thanks for making such great apps! Being able to see and talk in real time with multiple people from all over the world is freakin' magic. At Zoom Theatre (no relation) we think your software is so fantastic that we started a live theatre company based on Zoom Webinar. We know that you wrote your software for business and not entertainment, but when you get a moment, would it be possible (pretty please), for you to add a few more features desperately needed by the live performing arts community?

How about some live theatre! You've got to see the amazing work that these two artists are doing. You won't believe they are separated by 1,800 miles.
