Participants re-create an old, classic radio play—along the lines of The Great Gildersleeve, Philip Marlowe, Detective, The Shadow, and The Jack Benny Comedy Hour—and then compose and perform a totally original one from scratch, learning the history of radio, designing and building sound effects from everyday objects, and writing an original script. Students also create original commercials for brand-new products. Kids will re-acquaint themselves with the beauty of imagination unencumbered by technology, culminating in a live performance at VPR on Friday afternoon at 1pm.
