Over the years, Anacortes Community Theatre has produced many “live” radio productions, including the most recent production of A Christmas Carol.  In these productions actors take on the style and costume of 1940’s actors in a radio studio, performing classic radio shows for a live studio audience, as well as an audience at home.  Big characters, vocal acting choices and Foley sound effects are the focus of this fun- filled production.  Students will perform episodes of classic radio like, “Flash Gordon”, “Zorro”, “The Shadow”, “Superman”, “The Lone Ranger” and more.  

9th – 12th grade students will meet from 9:30 am – 12 pm. 

6th- 8th grade students will meet from 1 pm – 3:30 pm.

All 6th – 12th grade radio episodes will perform together on ACT’s main stage on Friday August 6th and Saturday August 7th at 7:00 pm.  However, we are prepared to film it and stream it for audiences at home if COVID restrictions require us to do so.

All classes will take place in the ACT Main Building.
