Class Description

From the 1920's to the mid 1950's, radio was the predominant form of home entertainment. Families would gather in front of the radio in the evenings to enjoy their favorite comedies, mysteries, westerns and variety shows.  We will learn how this was done and actually cast and record some classic radio shows, like Our Miss Brooks and Sam Spade, that will be produced and posted online for everyone to enjoy. This class will be fun for everyone as you recreate some of the most famous characters in entertainment history and also learn how to create sound effects in radio production.

*We are hoping that the students will be able to perform their show at a local radio station as well if the social distancing standards are acceptable for being in a station at the time of the final class.

Howdy! I love all things music from performing to the production side. I've been in musical productions from elementary to Atascocita High School along with being in tech production since I was 12. I've also been on church worship staffs as a worship leader and production director and have been involved in large scale church productions. I love being apart of this amazing CYT family. There's no other theater company like it!
