John’s still on vacation, so it’s me doing everything again.

This week’s SETC 2010 coverage features Scott Hayes of Regent University and Donna Weber of the Georgia Shakespeare Festival.  Both of these folks have done some amazing things using Twitter with their productions and theatre companies.  Make sure to follow Georgia Shakespeare on Twitter!

Donna also has an interesting close call with some of the dance auditionees.  See the video!

IDS 183 SETC 2010 Part 1: Garrison & Savidge

Posted in SETC10 on March 8th, 2010

While John is off on his family vacation, he left me here to write the shownotes and edit the audio for the first couple of our SETC 2010 shows.

We’re going to start things off with a bang:  Our good friend Gary Garrison, Executive Director Creative Activity for the Dramatists Guild of America.

Also, we have a new friend, Dr. Dale Savidge of North Greenville University.  He is researching (and ran an SETC workshop on) something near and dear to my heart, “How Theatre Might be Used in the Development of People with Asperger’s Syndrome“.

Some talking points:
