Overview

A variety of stories from the pens of classical and contemporary writers, journalists and playwrights have been adapted for Readers Theatre performance in this new collection of scripts by a nationally-known authority on the subject. The success of Readers Theatre proves you don't need scenery or costumes to create a stirring dramatic performance. Sometimes called "theatre of the imagination", Readers Theatre communicates in a style similar to the golden days of radio theatre. Its ease of performance makes these scripts ideal for the drama classroom. Sample titles include: The Tooth Fairy Who Didn't Have Any Teeth, The Taming of the Shrew, Sire de Maletroit's Door, The Wind in the Willows and Where Have All the Flowers Gone? Included is a section defining Readers Theatre as a performance art.
