AN INTRODUCTION TO ACTING FOR RADIO

Saturday 4th August 2018 - 10:00 am

This is a practical introduction to how radio drama is made with plenty of chances to have a go and practice the techniques used in the production of professional radio drama.
The morning session introduces the participants to the weird and wonderful world of radio - featuring playful exercises to include all participants.
In the afternoon we will make a short radio play and all participants will receive their own copy of the finished version following the course.
For all fans of radio drama, Archers Addicts, students of performance, amateur performers and professional actors with little experience of radio work.
