Theater Arts Youth Academy Goes High Tech with “Do You Read Me?”

The Theater Arts Youth Academy (TAYA) of the Oswego Players, Inc. is going high tech with its first streaming performance full of virtual fun!  It’s a mad cap comedy for the whole family to enjoy.

“Everyone at NASA thinks that Dr. Weaver’s Mars colony is a joke, because it’s full of average joes instead of astronauts. Their mission? To grow the first eggplant on Mars. As Dr. Weaver takes reports from the self-appointed experts, disappointed sci-fi fans, and customer service nightmares that inhabit the colony under the leadership of the arrogant Commander, the mission starts to seem impossible. But could there be more to the story than they’re letting on? Written especially for actors to perform on video chat, Do You Read Me? is a space comedy about community.

Director Norman Berlin III is over the moon excited to announce his stellar cast for a story that’s out of this world.
