Shakespeare and Reader's Theatre: Fellow Traveling Companions
Ratliff, Gerald Lee
Online Submission
Whether constructed on literary analysis models or inspired by conventional acting theories, Reader's Theatre performance techniques are an invaluable instructional tool available to teachers who want their students to see, hear and feel Shakespeare texts in classroom discussion and performance. These exercises are designed to promote both a critical and creative instructional perspective to explore the inherent theatrical impulse that gives heightened dramatic meaning to Shakespeare's texts and personalizes classroom performances for students. Classroom performances viewed from this perspective sets free the imagination of student performers as they visualize and then voice the actions, attitudes and emotions of Shakespearean texts in an imaginative journey of intellectual as well as aesthetic interpretation.
