It can be difficult to keep people engaged on a virtual platform AND set yourself up for success, but we are committed to having your back! These workshops are designed to help you and your organization thrive by teaching you the same tools, tricks, and tips utilized every day in our virtual programming and performances for kids and adults.

We will also provide examples of how other mainstages program partners have been adapting to the ever-changing virtual landscape with case studies and fresh games to keep your audience engaged.
