Henty Audio Theater *Review #giftguide

 New Henty Audio Theater Awakens Your Child's Love of Learning, History And Adventure!

I love the idea of the 'old day's when the family was sitting around the radio.. yes radio to listen to a good story together. What a great bonding time, full of imagination! When we watch TV together there just isn't that bonding, nor imagination building that I picture in listening only to a great radio presentation. 

G.A. Henty is an outstanding author, with exciting books, many based on history. The books are great and I really encourage any readers in your family to pick them up. My kids prefer listening, and I am good with that if they are getting the great quality novels read to them!

This was action packed fun for the entire family!! Wonderful performance, great effects!

G.A. (George Alfred) Henty was a prolific English novelist and special correspondent (or what we now call a war correspondent).
He wrote more than 120 novels and is best known for his historical adventure stories that were written for children. Popular in the late 19th Century, these books have regained an enormous resurgence of popularity today among Christian and homeschooling families.

Under Drake's Flag: The Extraordinary Adventures of G. A. Henty.

Bill Heid took a group of employees--including his son Nick--to London and reproduced G.A. Henty's adventure book, Under Drake's Flag: A Tale Of The Spanish Main in audio theatre format. "I spared no expense in hiring some of the finest English actors... most of whom are in the Shakespearian theatre and movies over there. And, as a special treat, we were able to convince prominent British actor Brian Blessed to join our team as the narrator,” says Heid.  Adding, "In addition, the production crew we hired was top notch including award-winning composer John Campbell who did the original score for C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia.”

For a limited time you will be to be able to download and listen to the first chapter and hear for yourself the truly amazing quality and content of the production of Under Drake's Flag. Just go to and follow the simple directions.

Bill and his creative audio were recently featured on Glenn Beck's TV Show (please watch: and described by Glenn as "Old style storytelling- done really well.”

" Many children today have lost something very special – their imagination! While popular reality TV shows and video games bring a mainly visual world to children, nothing feeds their imagination like the joy of hearing or reading a great story. Bill Heid is determined to make a change by reigniting children's imagination through audio theater; a format that makes for a thrilling adventure in learning"
