Crash, Splat, Bang, Whoosh!

Standard

How would you like to be in a


RaDiOpLaY

with a narrator that has a funny ol’ voice, Velcro and goo?

This radio play is called “Dad’s Shed” and is about:

Three kids that go into their dad’s shed and go to many different and silly lands in a teleportation machine.

A    RaDiOpLaY is an audio story with clever sound effects to tell the story better.

 

For you to get a clearer picture of what I am saying, here is my day as part of a RADIOPLAY.

Eh-hem… Introducing:


HANNAH’S

NOTEBOOK!!!


In summary I did these sound effects in the play:

Teleportation machine going and landing by shaking maracas

Bongo drums- the drums that played while the king was coming

The opening of Jake’s nappy by ripping velcro apart

Vocal animal sounds, Applause and Screaming.

SO, now that you’ve got a brief idea what being in a radio play is like, do you feel like you should have a go?

Because let me just say, this workshop is absolutely worth doing!

Here is a photo of the speakers, props and stations.
