UPCOMING THEATRE OPTIONS
Naked Stage Readers Theatre
2019 -2020 Season
Artistic Director: Colleen McGoff Dean, KPU Retiree
Readers Theatre is often described as "theatre of the mind". The stage is "naked" - no sets, props or costumes - but not the actors. The actors embody the characters and perform so that the action of the play is created in the viewer's imagination. An engaging performance medium.
