Like most activities, theater shows were affected by the pandemic.

They also developed a partnership with the non-profit NGO Hello Future, developing arts curricula for displaced Syrian refugee teens in Iraq.

In 2022, the company is back to the physical theater by launching the latest improv comedy show: Adventure Story: Improvised!
