Reader’s Theatre


The Miners Foundry will present Reader’s Theatre on Sunday, July 2, 2017.  Reader’s Theatre 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.

This installment of Reader’s Theatre will feature stories by Edwidge Danticat, Jill McCorkle, Carolyn Cooke, and Arthur Miller.  Local professionals generously volunteering their time for this production include Director Tim O’Connor, and Actors Gaylie Bell-Stewart, Dave Iorns, Carolyn Winters, and Bruce Kelly.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m. and the show begins at 4:00 p.m.  Tickets are $10.00 and are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, and in person at Briar Patch C0-Op.  Ticketing fees may apply.
