In this camp, a partnership between Hugo House and the Jack Straw Cultural Center, students will learn the art of radio drama, through the act of script writing, vocal performance and recording, foley and sound effect production, and audio editing and mixing. This camp will be facilitated by lead writer, Corinne Manning, who is a published writer and educator; audio engineer Dan Guenther, who has worked with Jack Straw as an engineer and teaching artist since 2014; and a guest vocal coach to produce an original production.

This camp will culminate with a presentation of student projects. This camp is for students entering 7th & 8th grade in Fall 2022 and will take place IN-PERSON at the Jack Straw Cultural Center in the University District. Be sure to read our COVID-19 Policies before registering for this camp.

Scholarships are available by application. Questions? Please email youth@hugohouse.org.
