In response to requests from partners, InterAct has worked to create virtual and online versions of its arts education programs. It is also planning the rollout of in-person programming for spring 2021, following the protocols and reopening schedules of the State of Maryland and Montgomery County. It is in the development and production phase of its applied theatre work and programming for its free performing arts series. It has deepened its capacity to provide entertainment and share valuable resources with the families, educators, and parents in its audiences who have been hardest hit by the pandemic.
