Family Life Ministries /Bath, NY voice actor Bethany Rech (at left) has been chosen as a Top 3 Finalist on “Get in the Show” – an audition-based search for voice talent conducted by Focus on the Family. She plays the character “Laura” on “Kid’s Corner” – a radio drama that runs every Saturday morning on the radio network. “Being a top finalist for Focus on the Family is really exciting,” says Rech. “I never thought I would make it this far! The journey has felt unreal in some ways, but also really encouraging because many people have been voting for me along the way.”
Rech and two other competitors will perform their last audition, Saturday, Aug. 12, on an episode of “Adventures in Odyssey” during Focus on the Family’s finale event at its headquarters in Colorado Springs.
The grand prize winner and three of their family members will win a Focus on the Family 40th Anniversary Cruise to the Bahamas this November.
