“lopez pulls us into a world that seems poignant, magical, forever alluring.” — miami herald

Apollinaire Theatre invites you to
Apollinaire at Home
a free online play & film script
reading gathering
(by video meeting)!
(no need for stage fright, it’s not a performance!-
we’re gathering together to read for fun!)

Readings will be Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7:30, and Sunday “matinee” at 3:00.

Here’s how it works:

Getting Ready:
• Click the name of the Play/Movie on our homepage to get a link to the script. (or above)
To read the script you can
– download and print it, or
– read it on a separate phone/ipad/computer, or
– if your screen permits, you can be in the video conference and read it on the same screen.

The Event Begins:
• Log-in to the meeting, by clicking the date of the reading on our homepage. (or above)
• We will start to gather online in the video meeting room at 7:00pm. (2:30 Sunday)
— We would normally provide refreshments, but since Zoom doesn’t give us the option to hand you a glass of wine, we suggest having your own snacks and drinks at the ready.

• When you join, please click the chat button and let us know if you are interested in reading a major role, smaller role, or being part of the audience.

• At 7:30 (3:00 Sunday) sharp we’ll draw names, you’ll pick your role, and we’ll read!

• Following the reading, we’ll stay on line for a half hour for folks who’d like to discuss the play/film.

No worries if you are not among the technologically gifted. We’re as new to this as you are, and there’s sure to be some glitchiness at first, but with a bit of humor and perseverance we’ll make this work!

Looking forward to reading with you!!
