Radio Theatre Workshop

October 31, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until October 31, 2020


This Fall, Next Star is going “Black and White”. Let’s imagine we are back in the 1920’s where there is no television, internet, and social media. The main form of entertainment is radio. Radio Theatre came into existence in this era. It is a source of entertainment in which music, sound effects, and dialogue brought people together with no visual component.
We are bringing back radio theatre with a twist! This is 2020, radio theatre will now be performed on social media in an attempt to once again bring people together!
Join us from September 19 – October 31, 2020 for our Radio Theatre Workshop.
This is open to kids anywhere in the world ages 8 and up.
Classes will be held live online each Saturday, 10am-12noon (United States EST). We will cover the following:
– Characterization
– Sound effects
– Basic Acting Technique

The final two meetings will be dedicated to recording two episodes of radio theatre which will be aired online.
