White, Melvin R.
This anthology of literature contains selections that can be performed in classrooms, workshops, and speech and theater conventions as reader's theater, defined as a dramatic approach to literature. Divided into six categories--comedy, mystery/suspense, Christmas specials, folklore, children's classics, and the human spirit--the anthology features adaptations of both classic and contemporary works by William Shakespeare, James Thurber, Rudyard Kipling, O. Henry, Robert Louis Stevenson, Charles Dickens, the Brothers Grimm, Al Martinez, and Kenneth Grahame. The anthology also contains an essay on Readers Theater as a performance art, describing how to use stage/performance space and how to approach costuming for Readers Theater. (NKA)
