Elementary Reader’s Theatre (ERT) for grades 3-8 for the rest of the school year will meet from 5-5:50 p.m. on Wednesdays, beginning February 11 through the end of May, in the Program Room. Mr Jon Baughan will be the new mentor.
Reader’s theater is a legitimate form of drama with actors using their voices and upper bodies to convey various roles in a script through reading to an audience. It differs from a play in that parts or roles are read rather than memorized. Actors usually stand behind lecterns or music stands and use techniques such as vocal and facial expressions as well as hand and arm movements. Small hand props may be used as well. And, It’s FUN!
Periodic public performances are presented, participation in these is optional.
