A Readers Theatre in Your Classroom.
Connecticut English Journal, v2 n2 p17-22 Spr 1970
Drawing its materials from any genre, a Readers Theater differs from the usual theatrical presentation in that its action takes place in the reader's mind and is then projected to the audience. The one requirement for "production" is the reader or a group of readers--a stage is unnecessary. On a simple level, it emphasizes placement of readers, use of script, and variations of foci--on-stage, off-stage, or audience focus. A more advanced group can elaborate on the use of voice and body movement, but should still work for simplicity and clarity. (MF)
