Showtime with Encore Players is presenting "Pandemic of 1918: Readings from Novels, Poems, Children's Stories, Letters, and Written Memories" via Zoom from 7-8 p.m. next Tuesday (Aug. 18).
The Encore Players were formed in 2014 to provide an outlet in Livermore for amateur actors and directors to share their love of theater with the community.
"While we accept actors of all ages, we particularly look for works that give 'seasoned' actors an opportunity to perform," its website states.
Many of the founders were members of Cask and Mask, which performed for about 20 years in an old one-room schoolhouse renovated into the 99-seat May School Theatre.
Encore Players was to present a free show at the Livermore library titled "Remember the Ladies" on March 31 in honor of Women's History Month and the centennial of the 19th Amendment, but it was canceled due to COVID-19.
"Pandemic of 1918" is sponsored by the Livermore Public Library and Friends of the Livermore Library. The access link is zoom.us/j/99428922882.
