Seattle Academy Fall 8th Grade Show 2020
  • Arts

This fall, Seattle Academy 8th graders collaborated remotely to produce Help Desk: A-Stay-At-Home Play, by Don Zolidis. Presented on November 12, this was the first 8th grade show rehearsed and performed entirely on Zoom – quite a different venue from our Black Box Theatre on the SAAS campus. 

Twenty student actors prepared ten scenes from this new comedy written specifically for remote production. Directed by Michael Cruz (Performing Arts Chair), and coached by new faculty member, Ty Greenwood (Rhetoric), students worked together online in break-out rooms to learn and perform two and three-person scenes depicting funny and even absurd Help Desk calls.
