As the theater world adapted to Covid, many plays went to Zoom recording, creating projects which are a hybrid stage/video production. Jane had the pleasure of utilizing her editing skills in working director Nanci Van Fleet and fellow actress Rachel Ricca to adapt this beautiful 40-minute drama to the small screen, using all the tools of editing to create as cinematic an experience as possible.
In the fall of 2019, Shepard wrote and directed a new production of her puckish history of Boulder, which played a sold-out run at the Dairy Arts Center.
Produced by VIVA Theater, DUDE featured 100 years of Boulder's history with a multi-ethnic, inter-generational and multi-lingual cast of 27, playing almost 100 characters.
