The programs at every university faced unprecedented challenges in the 2020/2021 academic year. However, the performing arts faced a particular set of challenges. How do we stay creatively engaged when our art relies on liveness? To provide a creative outlet for students, Professor Blake Harris (SU Music, Theatre, & Dance) created a class that provided students with complete autonomy to develop a creative process that resulted in producing a radio play. The students adapted two radio dramas from the classic radio series "Lights Out." Students created sound effects and recorded their characterizations while observing COVID-19 safety measures utilizing what was available to them. These projects are examples of tenacity, creating something from nothing when the odds are stacked against you.
