Abstract
Reader's Theatre is a relatively new theatre form, originating in the early 20th century. It is essentially the dramatic performance of non-dramatic material. It is performance of literature, which includes short stories, novels, essays, letters, and poems. It is taking something which is meant to be read, and "reading" it, through performance, to an audience. Reader's Theatre has been called Theatre of the Mind (Coger and White, pp. 19-31), meaning that, instead of representing the whole picture on stage, a partial picture is presented through the words and actions of the characters, and each member of the audience is left to fill in the rest of the picture with his or her own imagination. In using the term Reader's Theatre, my intention is to also include Chamber Theatre, which focuses mainly on performing short stories without any deletion of text.
