The young actors this Tuesday were introduced to how to record a radio play. The start of the session involved a couple of ice -breakers and warm ups that involved “The sun shines on me”. Which gave our young actors inspiration and energy for the rest of the workshop.
Beforehand, Max, our facilitator who led the workshop got the young actors to compose and sign a group contract, which laid down a few ground rules for the sessions, such as supporting each other and working together as a team.
Afterwards Max got the group to record animal sounds (which was seriously funny!). Max showed how the sounds were recorded and how the recording equipment worked.
After a brief break, a read-through of the script followed. Every young performer read really well and displayed great talent for the roles they may be cast in.
Max and Olivia, who was also a Workshop Assistant, led a great session and were very supportive to the young people.
