Durango Arts Center used the Zoom platform for actors to be socially distant while still able to put on the staged readings of the 10th annual 10-Minute Plays Staged Readings finalists. Voting was opened to viewers of the DAC’s YouTube channel where the readings were presented and can still be viewed at www.youtube.com/user/durangoarts.
Five judges determined the grand prize winner, and voting with YouTube’s “like” feature determined the People’s Choice award.
