Readers Theatre is much like radio: The script is read (no memorizing) and the story comes alive through the words of the author and the tone, pitch and emotion of the actors’ voices. Minimal props and costumes may be used to enhance the story but are not required. Scripts include formal published plays and readings from noted authors. No previous acting experience is required. Plays may continued from page 31 —
