DA High School Theater Presents "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

Denver Academy's faculty and students continue to be creative with teaching and learning during the pandemic! Ms. Marks's High School Theater classes have joined together (virtually) this fall to present the hilarious radio play by Douglas Adams, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."

The science-fiction comedy radio series was originally broadcast in the United Kingdom by BBC Radio 4 in 1978, and afterward by the BBC World Service, National Public Radio in the U.S., and CBC Radio in Canada.

Students and after-school volunteers brought the production to life by creating sound effects and voicing their parts. Laugh along on this adventure while we learn more about how to hitch a ride to places outside of this world!
