Producing the Radio Play.
Walt, James
Maryland English Journal, v8 n1 p18-24, 26 F 1969
Radio plays can provide opportunities for high school or college students to act without having to memorize scripts. Elements necessary for a well-produced radio play consist of: (1) a suitable play, which may be a simple play or an adaptation of a short story or novel; (2) a radio script which is plausible and feasible within the limitations of radio production; (3) a director who will revise the script readily to provide proper rhythm and dramatic tension as well as promote the acting techniques especially required for radio performance; (4) sound effects which have both verisimilitude and the characteristics needed to establish moods or introduce characters; and (5) student actors capable of assuming various roles, some of which may involve characters whose outlook is alien to their own.
