An afternoon show for families with Readers Theater performances of four children’s books. A cast of local professional actors will narrate and perform the stories, with illustrations projected behind them. Presented by Midcoast Literacy.
Midcoast Literacy’s Readers Theater series introduces audiences to wonderful stories through live performances of adult and children’s literature. Readers Theater blends the reading aloud of a book with theatrical elements before a live audience. While narrating, the cast of actors bring added life to the characters and plot through voice, expression, and movement. In productions for children, illustrations from the books are projected on stage to further enhance the experience.
The October event will feature performances of four children’s books sure to captivate families with children ages 4-10. Check our website again in September for the final list of titles. Copies of the books will be for sale and kids will have a chance to meet the actors following the show.
