We are excited to announce the launch of Made-in-The-County our brand- new podcast series!
Produced by the Regent Theatre, this 50 minute monthly series is devised to share the cultural heritage of Prince Edward County. Each variety-show style episode features stories, live music and sound art created in or inspired by The County.
When it's safe to do so we will record episodes live at the Regent Theatre with an audience.
We encourage young people between the ages of 14 and 25 who want to get media, audio or producing experience to participate.
We will pair participating youth with mentors in their area of interest.
While we want to engage youth in the creation process, there’s no age limit for contributors! So, if you have a story, musical composition, poem, monologue or audio piece inspired by, made in or about your experience of the County we’d love to hear from you!
Got an idea? Want to participate? Please introduce yourself.
