Reader's Theatre

Reader’s Theater is a dramatic presentation of a written work in a script form. Readers read from a "script" and reading parts are divided among the readers. No memorization, costumes, blocking, or special lighting is needed. Presentations can easily be done in a classroom. Scripts are held by the readers, so lines are not memorized. The focus is on reading the text with expressive voices and gestures, making comprehending the text meaningful and fun for the student.
