A Theory of Adaptation for Readers Theatre.
Kneupper, Charles W.
In attempting the delicate task of adapting literature for Readers Theatre presentation, adapters must recognize two essential points: the importance of creating a script capable of effective presentation and the necessity of maintaining the integrity of the literature--those features contributing to the work's unique, unifying, and distinctive character. Keeping these points in mind, adapters can evaluate their options (omission of scenes, characters, dialogue, and so forth) when creating a script from any literary genre. (JM)
