ZOOMED

Those who fail Global History are Zoomed to repeat it

With theaters shuttered across the country because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the director and cast of the North Eugene Theater and Film Company have embraced the challenges and opportunities of creating theater with a new medium in a remote learning environment.

In an original episodic production written and produced by the North Eugene Theater and Film Company, 10 high school students come together to take a virtual credit recovery class during the COVID-19 pandemic after having failed Global History. As they learn together, they unravel secrets in their own histories and explore how to navigate complex relationships in a virtual environment.
