Readers Theatre is an ensemble reading event using scripts that may be original works or, more usually, adaptations of stories poems, plays, reportage or arguments. It is an interesting form of theatre in its own right and a powerful and creative of strategy to develop reading, thinking and writing. Readers Theatre is first and foremost an enjoyable activity brings texts to life.

It has many uses, and I have illustrated some in a set of short articles and videos on the website.

Here is one of the Thinking Scripts I have written to combine Philosophy with Children and Readers Theatre.

Readers Theatre Courses
My courses on Readers' Theatre have been very popular with teachers and other participants. Here are some comments:

Gill Holland, Consultant, Education Bradford.
Inspriational! The first time I have been on a course without my mind wandering! Bradford will be fed up of me going on about it. Thank you so much!

David Watson, Headteacher, Tweedmouth Middle School, Northumberland.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience - to be entertained and taught. I learned a very great deal. Thank you.

Melloney Arnett, Literacy Team Leader, Peckham Park Primary School
An excellent and fulfilling and most rewarding day. The seminar opened the doors to a wide range of lessons in cross-curricular subjects. Will certainly use ideas in school.
