The Vanished Note

3 (1)

When the Lamplighter Guild alumni found out about Mr. Hamby’s aspiration to record Titus: A Comrade of the Cross and Jessica’s Journey in March 2013, and the high cost at which the dramas were made, they were inspired to get together and brainstorm ways that they could help Lamplighter raise the funds to make the dramatic audios possible!  Together, they came up with the idea to put all of their skills from the Lamplighter Guild about creating dramas together to create a dramatized audio book based off of the first story featured in Lamplighter Publishing’s The Vanished Note.

Thus the project was born and in less than a month, The Vanished Note was created by a team of about ten Lamplighter Guild alumni.

Based off of Lamplighter Publishing’s The Vanished Note by Mary E.  Ropes, in Lamplighter Guild Apprentice Productions dramatized audio book The Vanished Note we are reminded that seemingly insignificant decisions can have a profound effect on others. Molly looks at the tempting bit of paper in her hand, realizing all she must forfeit in giving it up, but having no idea just how critical her decision will be in proving someone’s innocence.
