Shipwrecked Viola is in love with Orsino... who is in love with Olivia… who is in love with Cesario… who is secretly Viola, who is disguised as a man. In a world turned upside down, what could possibly go wrong?

We’ll get to watch the show as it’s performed live in front of a socially distanced audience, plus an ASC education staff member will text chat messages with us throughout the performance, answering questions and providing insights. Stay after for a talk-back with the artists—yes, you can ask questions from the comfort of your own home.

The Alden Presents “Drive-Thru Drama,” a new model of theatre (as far as we know!) in a COVID-19 world. Drive-Thru Drama is a social-distance theatre format that brings people together for live theatre from the comfort of their own car. Actors will perform one, cohesive story through short scenes across the MCC parking lot. Audience members will simply roll down their windows and drive the route from actor to actor. The Alden has also produced “Small Change” and “From the Ash Baxter Files: The Search for the Stolen Spyglass,” both written by Andrew Scott Zimmer for the Drive-Thru Drama format.

 

Every 100 years, the planets align in such a way that allows Spooky Scientists access to an alternate dimension. A century ago, physicist Boris Gool entered and has not been heard from again. Brave the portal this October and help a modern-day Spooky Scientist as you encounter werewolves, witches, zombies and more in the search for what really happened to Boris. A once-in-a-lifetime family-friendly drive-thru adventure created by Recent Cutbacks (“Hold On To Your Butts,” “KEVIN!!!!!”).

 

“In the age of Zoom readings and live-streamed stagings, leadership at the McLean Community Center’s Alden Theatre pondered a question: What if that stop sign for in-person performance could be reconfigured as a detour?” - The Washington Post (July 2, 2020)

 

Safety precautions that adhere to the CDC and Health Department guidelines include:
• The driving route will be set up so that actors are a minimum of six feet away from cars and each other at all times.
• All actors will be wearing a face shield. All audience members are asked to wear a mask.
• Other precautions may be taken if recommended by the CDC or the Health Department.
• Those who are considered to be in a high-risk category for contracting COVID-19 should consult a doctor before purchasing tickets.
