Internationally renowned Reader’s Theatre expert Iz Crain, former co-director of the Readers Theatre Institute based in San Diego, presents PROLOGUE TO READERS THEATRE, a story performed by six local homeschoolers (with a bit of help from a couple of younger siblings) on October 4, 2012 at 3 p.m. in the Wilson Museum, 120 Perkins Street, Castine.

Readers Theatre, the creative performance of literature from a script, is not just a fun way to perform stories without all the props and scenery required for a play. It’s also a great way to provide meaningful reading practice and a sharpening of the imagination. Come and watch the show, and see what this is all about.

A discussion with Ms. Crain will follow the performance for parents, teachers and children to ask questions or receive pointers in creating scripts of their own.
