Readers Theater

Directed by Gaylie Bell-Stewart in the tradition established by Tim O’Connor, this performance of Readers Theater will focus on the Best American Short Stories of the 1960s by Margaret Shipley, Jack Gilchrist, Jon Bart Gerald, and Norma Klein.

The afternoon will feature performances by Sandra Rockman, Jon Blinder, Kimberly Ewing, and Gaylie Bell-Stewart herself, generously donating their time for this special event.

Readers 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 imagine illustrate the story.
