We're glad you asked! In the theater, you often see actors reciting lines memorized during rehearsal. In Reader's Theater, we read lines from a script during the show. This allows us to dig deep into our characters and the story without worrying about forgetting lines.
If you are new to community theater or dread memorizing, audition for the next show and see why Reader's Theater is the best reason to read aloud!

Renowned as a novel and as a prize-winning motion picture, the story of the Joad family and their flight from the dust bowl of Oklahoma has touched audiences for decades. Desperately proud and now homeless, the Joads head west for California, hoping to find work and a better life. The Joads must face death and terrible deprivation before reaching their destination, only to have their dreams crushed by the Great Depression. Despite the anguish and suffering on stage, the play highlights the indomitability of the human spirit and of the essential goodness and strength of the “common man.”
