CBC News gives more details about it:
Elora Community Theatre normally performs its shows at the Fergus Grand Theatre but has started a "virtual playhouse" this summer. It's a completely different way of experiencing a play — imagine characters interacting with one another through the grid of a video conference instead of the width of a stage.
Their first production in June — A Midsummer Nights Dream — was streamed live on Zoom with actors in costume using virtual backgrounds for sets. It's been up on YouTube since. This Sunday's show will be Jane Eyre, co-directed by Deb Stanson and David Tanner.
But just because you're not seeing a fullscale production doesn't mean it's any less work for the actors involved. Just ask J.M. Frey, who plays the adult Jane Eyre, who narrates the play.
"Everyone has Zoom backgrounds to swap around or change depending on what scene they're in, and everyone has to look at the camera, and everyone is responsible for their own green screens and lighting, and everyone is responsible for remembering to turn their mic and their cameras on and off the top and bottom of each scene that they're in,"  she said.  (Jackie Sharkey)
