The Taipei American School’s middle school performance of The Little Mermaid went on, despite coronavirus restrictions, with some modifications. Dressed in full costume, students wore masks and performed to an empty room, as the play was streamed so parents could watch from home. Another section of the school’s arts programs, the choir, has continued to practice as well, wearing masks and spaced out over three levels to adhere to this new world.
