by Amy Radwanski, Public Relations Writer

Broadcasting and digital media students at Cedarville University will broadcast their original audio production of “Dracula” on Thursday, Oct. 30, at 10 p.m. on Cedarville’s student radio station, Resound Radio.

The 50-minute program, a retelling of Bram Stoker’s classic novel, will feature Cedarville faculty, staff and students as voice actors.  The character “Dracula” will be voiced by Matthew Moore, associate professor of theater. Madison Hart, junior theater major from Beavercreek, Ohio, will play the role of “Mina,” and “VanHelsing” will be voiced by John Eichelberger, a 2014 graduate. 

“We have high-quality sound design students who have a real vision for what they want to accomplish and are working together to coach the talent of this production,” said James Leightenheimer, associate professor of communications.

Leightenheimer served as an advisor for the drama’s recreation with his sound design class. Stephen Johnson, a senior from Beckley, West Virginia, directed the production, overseeing its completion with the class. 

“The class focused on maintaining quality and exploring how to use sound creatively throughout the production process,” said Leightenhiemer. “This experience is a great opportunity for both theater and broadcasting and digital media students.”
