The Glen Arbor Art Association presents its new dramatic venture, Readers’ Theater on Wednesday, November 30 at 7pm. It features two adapted Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle “The Adventure of the Tolling Bell” and “The Problem of Thor Bridge,” directed by Josephine Zara. This event at the GAAA (across the street from Cherry Republic in Glen Arbor) is free and open to the public – goodwill offerings will be accepted at the door.
Readers’ Theater involves members of the local community performing stories, adaptations from novels, or other literary materials onstage, using a script, lighting and sound effects. Actors use their voices and facial expressions to dramatically communicate the story to their audience, rather than costumes, sets or other visual aids. No memorization is required.
Director Josephine Zara of Glen Arbor is a former communications and theater professional who studied with Uta Hagen at the Herbert Berghof Studio in NYC, and is a GAAA member. She co-chairs Readers’ Theater with Harriett Mittelberger of Glen Arbor, a professional director and educator who has directed at Old Town Playhouse, and serves on the board of the GAAA.
