Our Reader's Theater is a group of children and teens who read together as a group. As in this picture, you will be reading from a script, nothing is memorized. We read together, split into groups one and two, and have solo readers. It's like standing in a chorus or choir but instead of singing, we read. Actually this year since our theme is "Catch the Reading Bug", we will be singing several songs: "There Ain't No Bugs on Me", "The Ants Go Marching...", to name a few. It's a lot of fun!
If you are interested in signing up for Reader's Theater, go to the children's reference desk located in the children's room. However, if you do sign up, you MUST be present at the five rehearsals. If you are not present, you lose the parts that have been given to you. We only have five one hour rehearsals and each minute is vital! Also, you must be 8 years old or older to participate.
