Behind the Screen: Talking about the impact of COVID-19 with Jennifer Salter, Costume Shop Manager

Here at Auburn, we have had the privilege to continue to participate in the art of theatre socially distanced, and virtually present our work to the community of Auburn. This semester, the university also began its distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine which has dawned a new sense of hope for the campus community. To see how these changes have affected members within our own community, we talked with Costume Shop Manager, Jennifer Salter.
