Return to the Era of Yesteryear and tune into a fun-filled recreation of a 1940’s radio show! Students will take part in every aspect of recreating these fun-filled episodes, including sound effects, dramatic voiceovers, jingles and commercials. The Fabulous Forties will be introduced to your child through scripts and music transcribed from the original broadcast recordings. These virtual classes will be held over three days, in two-hour sessions — with a final performance the whole family can enjoy!

No memorization required!

Educational and Unique! (click here to expand for details)

Your child will learn about the music, fashion, radio and pop culture of the Fabulous Forties and how it still influences our lives today.

The students will learn how to collaborate with each other to produce a ‘radio show’. Learning how to use your voice is a fundamental building block of performing. This program focuses on strengthening their diction, acting and singing skills! Students will learn how to shine as a performer even when a physical stage isn’t present.
