Holy moly, it's Foley

Double, double, toil and trouble. In this one-day workshop students will learn to think like a Foley artist (a creator of live sound effects). Students will make sound effects from everyday objects and integrate them into scenes from Shakespeare's Macbeth. Through scene analysis and brainstorming, students will explore different ways to create sounds with objects like soda cans, shoes and even pumpkins. The workshop will culminate in students performing a radio play version of scenes with live Foley. April 23, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Ages 10-18.
