Today, campers had to solve a sound effects puzzle: match the prop with the desired sound effect to discover crackling fire, horses galloping, and even a sword fight! Next we wrote small radio plays using the sound effects.

Today, campers were introduced to radio plays and how sound effects are used to enhance a story. We listened to Ray Bradbury's "Zero Hour", a sci-fi tale about an alien invasion.

Tomorrow, we'll make our own sound effects and receive a demonstration from Bricolage Theater's Tami Dixon.
