Little House on the Prairie: Reader’s Theater
Laura Ingalls Wilder has been charming the young-at-heart for generations with her books series, The Little House on the Prairie. Beloved world-wide and adapted for the stage and screen, these books feature fabulous characters filled with drama, love, and laughter. Reader’s Theater is similar to a staged reading – actors sit at music stands reading the script aloud to an audience, often playing multiple characters of different ages. Rehearsing and performing this script provides a great opportunity to focus on character development and an expressive voice without the pressures of memorization or the time-commitment of a full-length rehearsal process.
While rehearsing, participants will learn to create a more layered and complex performance for each character. It’s also a great way to practice reading with expression which is the key to a successful cold read audition. Performances at places such as elementary schools, senior centers, and local arts partners are still to be determined.
