A crowd favorite, Tim O’Connor’s Readers Theater will return to Miners Foundry the afternoon of Sunday, May 1.

The performance will feature several local performers acting out some of the best-written and critically acclaimed American stories, and was inspired by Theatre of the Mind, a way of telling tales during World War II when resources for full-scale productions were scarce.

This Readers Theater will focus on classic short stories by Margaret Shipley, Jack Gilchrist, Jon Bart Gerald, and Norma Klein.

The afternoon will feature performances by Sandra Rockman, Kimberly Ewing, Gaylie Bell-Stewart (who also directs), and Jon Blinder.  

“Even though Readers Theater is performed without costumes, sets or blocking, the actors use their voices and acting skills to transport audiences right into the stories they read,” said Bell-Stewart. “This performance will feature four of the best American short stories from the 1960s.”
