30 Brave Minutes

Performing Arts in 2020

October 29, 2020


The Performing Arts have been dramatically impacted by COVID-19 in the year 2020. Many theaters have "gone dark" and any performances that do occur are allowed minimal attendance. As a result, our artistic and creative leaders have been forced to adapt and improvise to create meaningful performances and productions in completely new ways. We welcome Sarah Busman, Adjunct flute instructor and principal flute in the Fayetteville Symphony, James Bass, Executive Director of Givens Performing Arts Center (GPAC), and Jonathan Drahos, Professor and Director of the UNCP Theatre program to discuss their initiatives in reimagining the performing arts in 2020.


Check out the GPAC website for the Ghost Light and forthcoming Macbeth productions discussed in the episode.
