This mystery will give you goosebumps! Trenchcoat-clad private eye Jo August, is hired for the case of a missing, uh, mother which turns into a wild goose chase. Turns out Mother Goose is the alleged victim, and the suspects include Old MacDonald, Georgie Porgie, Jack and Jill, Humpty Dumpty, and Peter and his wife. The detective discovers that every character has a motive. Will the perpetrator be found? Will his goose be cooked? Will she have egg on her face? The virtual audiences will be delighted by the funny plot twist and an un-eggs-pected ending.
The class will cast, practice, and perform the cyber play in an interactive, virtual setting for an online audience, yet students will communicate as if they're all in the same place together. The selected script was specifically written for virtual theater. New and returning acting students will have fun and be challenged to think on their feet with costumes, props, and backdrops when the show is literally happening in their own home.
This class is best suited for students who are active listeners, are flexible and easily adapt, have a sense of humor, and can work in a collaborative group. Students need to be able to stay in sync with the flow of the class. This is not an "anything goes" or free-for-all class. The students will perform for family and friends at the end of the quarter online.
Topics in this Series: Alice in Cyberland (Quarter 1); Sherlock Holmes, a Radio Mystery (Quarter 2); If They Could Talk (Quarter 3); Goose Napped (Quarter 4)
