Radio Theatre for the Classroom

By: Meredith Ludwig

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School
Cast: Entire classroom
Time: Up to 5 minutes each

This packet of scripts is designed to teach members of our TV generation how the exciting sounds of old-time radio drama were done. In producing these five short audio playlets some students create the sound effects of lightning, thunder, footsteps, rain, wind, etc. as the others watch. Each actor learns to cue his/her lines to the effects and to work with the sound effects person to heighten the illusion of reality. Each script offers a different challenge. Included are: 1. Rain, 2. The Pretzel Woman, 3. Reading with Alex, 4. Moving the Circle and 5. The Best Show of All. Detailed instructions included. The big fun is for everyone to listen to their radio show when it’s completed.
