School for Scandal: Episode One

The Frederick Scout has partnered with the Frederick Theatre Department to produce School for Scandal, the school’s spring play turned radio during quarantine. The podcast is produced almost entirely by students recording their lines remotely and editing the final podcast themselves.

In Part One Veronica Sneerwell, the leader of a gossip blog, and Joseph Surface scheme and plan to spread rumors about Brinsley College’s dean and Joseph’s adoptive uncle Peter Teazle and his wife. They hope to split up not only that couple but also Joseph’s older brother, Charles, and his girlfriend, Maria.
