During this week's Youth Drama Camp, two dozen young thespians-in-training are getting to experience all the excitement of Broadway—learning about acting, music, movement, and technical theatre under the direction of instructors Emily Keiner and Robin Canales. The students wrap their week with a performance Friday evening at the PAC showcasing everything they learned.
Summer School students in Mr. Neils's Radio News/Podcasting class work on interviewing, audio editing, and narration to create an audio news/feature piece. They've created great stories from their interviews of authors, filmmakers, coaches, police officers, and veterans, as well as representatives from the EAA and Milwaukee County Zoo. The class recently took a tour of 88nine Radio Milwaukee, where students learned about the inner workings of a radio station, including equipment, jobs, production, marketing, programming, and even a little economics. They are always such great hosts!
GSD students are really stretching their learning during Summer School classes—and picking up some new skills along the way. Hard to believe the 2022 session ends next week!
