  1. There are a couple of moments where everyone can be seen (but only if you choose to have your video on) but generally audience members cannot be seen or heard by the performers, the Stage Manager, or each other.
  2. The performers will remind the audience of this as the performance begins, explain that they can see a list of names only, and direct you to the ‘Raise Hand’ icon and message functions.
  3. There will be moments of interaction where you may type or speak to everyone – but you choose if you would like to do this, and how much involvement you would like overall.
  4. There are moments where flashing images or footage will briefly be projected on the screen, and some loud noises.
  5. Cast members will talk you through all of this as part of the experience. Don’t worry, they’re experts, you’ll be in good hands!
