    Working with a Nationally Recognized Sound Designer - Students will use DnD Role Playing Principles to perform in their very own original short-form Action Audio Drama.

    Adapting a popular NCT Summer camp to your living room!
    Roll the dice. Take a risk. Inspired by role-playing games with a 20-sided die, this class challenges students to take the principles of levels, power, and characteristics and apply it to choices in voice acting. Roll Playing focuses on improvisation and imagination to create reactive and exciting scenes that will be presented in audio drama form at the end of the session.

    In this class students will create a character starting from basic archetypes and rounding out those characters through a series of acting exercises. Being placed into smaller groups, students will then build on and embody those characters, creating backstories, and character voices as they test their wits against obstacles thrown their way.

    At the end of the session, the student's improvised encounter will then be transformed into a fully produced Audio Drama by Colin Peterson, a nationally recognized sound designer, winning "Best Action Sound Design" by the Audioverse Awards (national awarding association for audio drama podcasts) in 2020.
