A troupe of young actors from the Flynnarts summer camp program spent the day at VPR recently creating two radio plays. Under the direction of the Flynn's Joan Robinson, the young campers created sound effects and acted out their parts in the VPR Performance Studio. It looked and sounded just like the radio theatre of the '30s and '40s. The rain came down, thunder boomed and mice skittered across the floor as a mini drama the children wrote themselves unfolded.
They also performed an episode of the radio theatre classic, "Jack Armstrong, the All American Boy".
VPR's Senior Audio Engineer Sam Sanders recorded and mixed the finished product.
