Radio Drama Class with Lori & RJ

Modern Technology Meets the Golden Age of Radio

This class is about creativity and fun in an exciting online “Zoom” atmosphere of learning and growing through the Art of Vintage Radio Drama.  There are no tryouts. Everyone participates. Talent is appreciated and nurtured but not required. We want committed participants who will show up online, take it seriously and be enthusiastic.

Our Philosophy

Our goal is to stretch our students minds with new experiences, insight and an appreciation of the Theater Arts. and Old Time Radio.  Coaching that is rich in performance is what your young actor will experience.  We help youth gain confidence and stretch themselves as they interact with one another. Whether on stage or online, they will build essential life skills while learning the tools to perform with their voice and their personality.  All these skills transfer to real life situations in interacting with people.  Most importantly we’ll have fun enjoying the process!

Our Live Radio Drama Class focuses on:

  • Imaginative theater games; comedy and timing
  • Pantomime; improvisation; ensemble skills
  • Study vintage radio shows and commercials
  • Explore the Art of Foley
  • How to interpret scripts and appreciate language arts
  • How to speak clearly and confidently
  • Voice Acting basics
  • Speech technique; vocal warm ups; acting with your voice
  • Improve Listening
  • And much more while having big fun cultivating new creative skills in a very caring and supportive environment
