We are all playing the greatest role of our lives right now.

There has never been a bigger “drama” than what we’re all seeing right now.

And it’s so ripped from the headlines, it’s absolutely real.

The difference with this one . . . is that, well, you know how shows usually have stars?  And then there are those occasional, beautiful, evened out ensemble pieces . . . where no one role gets the spotlight . . . but the spotlight is shared by the entire cast.

That’s this.  Right now.

We’re all a part of this show, whether we like it or not, and it’s time for all of us to shine.

And we do that by doing exactly what our Director (The CDC!) is telling us to do.

Our brand new “lines” and stage directions are below.  Don’t improvise.  Don’t think, “Shoot, I’ve been on stage before . . . I know how to do this.”

You don’t.  I don’t.  No one does.

So be the best chorus boy or girl you can and perform the stage directions as written.

The script, “15 Days To Slow The Spread,” is below.

And, well, the curtain is already up.  And it’s time to show ’em what you’ve got.

(And tune in tomorrow, or subscribe here . . . as we’ve got fun, productive, practical tips for all you TheaterMakers out there to make use of this time.)
