Instructor in English and Theatre Parker Reed and theatre students produced several short productions for the H.D.A. Instagram page this spring, uploaded to the account weekly in April and May.
Reed says of the effort, "In the theatre, ensembles care about each other; they lift and inspire. I wanted participants to feel connected to a process, then share their product to help keep the Hotchkiss community connected (and amused). We invited students, staff, and faculty to make some digital magic, posting a short play each Thursday since early April to the H.D.A. Instagram account. Everyone involved has chuckled at some point in the process, and we trust our weekly gifts have provided some levity during heavy times."
Librarians, coaches, English and math instructors, students, alumni, and more have contributed, with over forty people participating in a celebration of Shakespeare's birthday on April 23rd.
