Unusual Uses/Audiences for Readers Theatre.
White, Melvin R.
From the beginning, readers theatre performances generally have been held in academic or theatrical settings and have relied heavily on literary scripts. Now, readers theatre performers are finding a wider range of audiences and materials for their use. Among these special audiences are elementary and secondary schools, schools for the physically and mentally handicapped, prisons, retirement homes, churches, and recreational camps. These varied audiences have prompted performers and teachers to look for new sources of materials and to develop their own without relying on traditional literature. (FL)
