Every year in the Acting Seminar, students spend a week exploring a variety of theatrical styles before selecting one to study for the trimester. This year, one section of students opted to study radio drama. For our first recording, we selected two scripts from The Five Mysteries Program, an anthology radio show that ran from 1947 to 1950 in the United States.
This is a rudimentary first attempt at radio drama, focused primarily on creating a clean recording with actors, music, and foley artists who create sound effects live in the studio.
More podcasts are forthcoming as we reflect on our work and refine our output.
