Number The Stars
Nashville Childrens Theatre
Number the Stars was based on stories from survivors of the Holocaust. The Sound Design for this play was created based on sounds and settings described by survivors of the Holocaust. Brad's research centered mainly on recordings in the British Library of Jews who actually made the journey from Denmark to Sweden as described in the play. His sounds included ambient sounds which helped to set each scene. A recording from BBC Radio Denmark was used to open the play. He effectively helped create the characters Kaiser and Sozay who were dogs trained to search out Jews. Original music was also created by Brad and Gideon Boley which provided underscore for transitions and speeches. The play along with the Sound Design was a great success and received good reviews.
