The 39th annual Readers Theatre Workshop has been recently updated and will provide a hands-on, collaborative environment, with a curriculum that covers script-making from diverse texts, directing, staging,  acting techniques, competitive performance information, oral interpretation, application to the classroom, and teaching methodology. The intensive 5 day program will also include additional cultural activities.

The class will meet from July 10th to July 14th, from 9am- 5pm daily, with additional evening programs to include theater, museum attendance, and rehearsal.  Additional evenings will be utilized for application of the technique to a final works-in-progress presentation on the final afternoon.

The intensive will take place on the USM Gorham campus, just outside of Portland, Maine, the cultural capital of the state with numerous theatre companies, art galleries, music venues, eclectic restaurants, and easy access to the pristine Maine oceanfront.

Housing is available for a very reasonable fee on the Gorham Campus in Upper Class Hall, the newest and ‘green’ apartment style dorm on campus.
