The Miners Foundry will present Tim O’Connor’s Reader’s Theater on January 5, 2020. Reader’s Theater has been called Story Time for Grown Ups, or Theatre of the Mind, and gained popularity during World War II when large stage plays were too expensive to produce. Using minimal props, the actor and your imagination illustrate the story. Directed by Gaylie Bell-Stewart, the show will offer the Best American Short Stories from the 1940s, featuring works by E.B White, John Cheever, William Maxwell, V.S. Pritchett and Brendan Gill read by: Donna Brown Raibley, David Lynn, Sandra Rockman, Bruce Kelly and Gaylie Bell-Stewart.
Doors open at 3:30 p.m. and the show begins at 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, and in person at Briar Patch C0-Op. Ticketing fees do not apply for purchases made through the Miners Foundry Box Office.
A no-host bar will be open before and during the performance selling non-alcoholic and adult beverages as well refreshments.
