Like other organizations at TJ, the TJ Theatre Arts (TJTAs) department has been profoundly affected by the ongoing pandemic. Despite these difficulties, the department has come up with a new medium to share their whimsical stories: podcasts. Through writing, directing, and voice acting, members of TJTAs have developed creative methods to showcase plays in an audio-only format. Key members of the ongoing podcast projects shared their experiences bringing the immersive on-stage drama experience to students from the comfort of their homes.
