Have you ever wanted to beat out the frantic footsteps of a detective as he chases a suspect across the rooftops of a big city? Have you ever secretly desired to write your own commercial jingle for a product you have just invented? Have you ever wished you could play the creaky voice of Sparky, the cockerspaniel or Alona, the mysterious woman tap dancer? Then this workshop is for you and the entire family.
Join the fun for five consecutive Saturdays, starting Nov. 7, as the American Logres Theatre of Middletown Springs assemble a cast of would-be radio performers to recreate a 1930s-era radio show-live and on stage.
Each Saturday, participants will explore the art of Foley, creating sound effects using homemade instruments, write their own jingles for commercials, and create voices for a variety of funny and mysterious characters in an original radio play.
This unusual hands-on workshop is designed with participation for the entire family in mind (youngest participant s must be at least age 7).
Vermont Radio Days will be held, 1-6 p.m., on several Saturdays: Nov. 7, 14, 21, 28 and Dec. 5, at the Middletown Springs Community Church in Middletown Springs. The Saturday sessions will culminate in a "broadcast" performance and party for an invited audience of family and friends. One snack will be provided.
To join the cast, the cost is $125 per child and $175 per family. A $25 nonrefundable deposit is required to hold your place. Partial scholarships are available.
