Shawnee Showcase

SHAWNEE SHOWCASE was recorded at Shawnee Elementary School in Cincinnati, OH on March 31, 2006 as part of a project called Make Your Own Radio Show. Based on the nationally renowned From The Top, a radio show that airs weekly and features talented young performers from all over the country, Make Your Own Radio Show is a program designed to engage students in the dynamic process of communication and performance through the creation of their own radio show.

Listen to Shawnee Showcase!

All of the performers are in the sixth grade. The program was produced by the fourth graders at the school. They were divided into three crews, which were as follows:

Script writers
Skit team

Song leaders

Stage managers
Technical directors
Set designers
Publicity Directors

Over the course of several weeks and following a carefully designed curriculum, these groups prepared for the big show by completing the many tasks necessary for a successful performance.

Thanks to Catherine Gorman, music teacher, and Ericka Simmons, principal, at Shawnee Elementary School and to representatives from WGUC, including Naomi Lewin, Jim Neumeister, Chris Phelps and Seth Applegate, for their help in making Shawnee Showcase a success.
