Using minimal props, the actor and your imagination illustrate the story.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m. and the show begins at 4:00 p.m.

Reader’s Theatre has been called many things including Theatre of the Mind and Interpreters Theatre.   For the audience, the Reader’s Theatre experience is one of involvement.  The audience participates with its imagination to provide the sets, costumes, and props.  Skilled voice actors cause the audience to experience literature as they do.
