Thrilling Radio Theater with Heirloom Audio Productions


I am part of the Homeschool Review Crew. All opinions are my own.


It seems like the things that make you use your imagination are fading away now. More and more people are addicted to technology and don't know how to just sit and imagine something without the help of an app. So when I was asked to review Heirloom Audio Productions' newest CD, Captain Bayley's Heir, I was curious on how it would work for our family.

Our entire family is pretty much technology based. My husband and I both work from home on the computer daily. Mary is a what I call a "techie" child because she owns so much technology and loves every minute of it. She programs video games and can sit for hours making a project on the computer. So for our family to actually sit and listen to something like an audio story, I wasn't sure how it would keep everyone's attention.

Captain Bayley's Heir

Captain Bayley's Heir starts off in England with the main character, Frank, who is a student at university. He is an upright young man and is eager to help anyone he meets. One day when he is unjustly accused of a crime he didn't commit, he flees for America in hopes to prove to his uncle, Captain Bayley, that is he innocent and can make his own way.

In America, he eventually ends up in Omaha and starts to head west towards California. And all along the way he learns about God's grace. The characters were all so wonderful and the actors were so believable! I listened to the story all night long because it was so addicting!

I'm going to be completely honest in saying that we listened to this straight through because it was so enthralling! As a lover of the wild west, this is a top ranking story! Captain Bayley's Heir made you really feel like you were right there during the during the old west days. The sound effects and acting were amazing! If you closed your eyes, you could imagine being in a gunfight. I even stopped my work to sit and listen which is huge for me. But for Mary, she actually listened to the whole thing and loved it. And I love that when I would stop to talk for a minute, she would hush me so she could continue listening! 

Heirloom Audio Productions has produced many different audio theater adventures and you can even join their Live the Adventure Club where you can access bonus content like the E-book, Official Soundtrack, Printable Cast Poster and even the Study Guide. 

Inside the Study Guide, you will have quizzes for each track of the CD which are great for homeschool, ways to learn deeper like finding certain places talked about on maps, and even recipes you can try out. The Study Guide is a great addition to the actual CD because it will help you learn and follow along even more. We plan to learn even more about the Old West with the books listed in the study guide as well. We love going to the library to find new books when we're doing  unit study so the Old West will be our next one. 

Overall we were completely impressed with Captain Bayley's Heir and we can't wait for the next audio theater from Heirloom Audio Productions to come out!
