Calling all Actors! Let’s create Radio Theatre!! We will learn & perform, 3-4 Radio Plays
This style of show allows us to tap into some vintage charm while showcasing engaging stories and talented performers. The basic premise is that the actors you would normally see on stage are “radio actors” who portray the characters in each story using their voice and facial expressions. It is similar to a staged reading where the actors have the scripts in front of them, for reference, but still deliver fully nuanced performances. When an actor is playing more than one character, they will make slight changes to their voice to indicate the new persona.
The students will also become “foley artists” for the performance…they will create live sound effects by turning household objects like bubble wrap, cellophane, breakfast cereal, and shoes into roaring fires, footsteps in the snow, and dancing feet.
We will broadcast our show live via Zoom, taking the audience members listening to the show to a time when the whole family would gather around the radio to catch their favorite program and go on the next grand adventure.
