Reader’s Theatre


The Miners Foundry will present Reader’s Theatre on Sunday, November 27, 2016.  Readers 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 Readers Theatre will feature stories by Steve De Jarnatt, John Updike, George Saunders, and Nicole Krauss.  Local professionals generously volunteering their time for this production include Director Tim O’Connor, and Actors Gaylie Bell-Stewart, Bruce Kelly, Dave Iorns, and Corinne Gelfan.

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.
