About the series:


Reader's Theatre is not a fully-staged production with sets, costumes and dramatic action performed by actors who memorise lines from a script. Instead, a Readers' Theatre performance is a dramatic reading, just as its name suggests. Readers are usually seated, reading from a script that is held in their hands or placed on a music stand in front of them. There may be minimal use of costumes or props, such as hats, a sceptre or crown, or a simple backdrop to provide a suggestion of the setting and characters that the readers hope to bring to life for the audience during their dramatic reading.

Readers' Theatre offers all the enrichment of traditional theatre productions, but without the logistical challenges that come with designing and building sets and creating costumes. Students are spared the stress of having to memorise lines, and can instead focus on developing a strong dramatic reading of the script.
  • Builds oral fluency and reading and language skills
  • Provides easy-to-perform scripts across a broad range of topics
  • Makes drama performances possible within the classroom
  • Independent follow-up activities
