"Last year I didn't think we could do it successfully, but TRU has embraced the reality of where we are now and reinvented ourselves for a virtual new world," said Bob Ost, executive director of TRU. "One by one our programs are being rethought and offered in virtual format. The weekly Community Gathering was the program that launched us into a new way of doing things so we can continue to serve our community, offering ongoing information and a little less isolation. And we now have even planned our massive annual Audition Event Weekend for Zoom, coming up May 22ndand 23rd. We love being accessible to people outside the New York area - what a gift!"
