Introducing families to wonderful stories through fun, live performances of childrens' books by local actors.
Readers Theater is a style of theater that blends the reading aloud of a book and theatrical performance before a live audience. The actors simultaneously narrate the story and bring added life to the characters through voice, expression, and movement. Midcoast Literacy Readers Theater performances are our way of sharing a love of reading and great childrens' books in a unique format with local kids and families.
