For over fifteen years, NLT’s Readers’ Theatre has presented free events where actors read from a variety of classic and contemporary works. In the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic, and to help preserve the health and safety of our patrons, the series will be presented virtually on Facebook and YouTube this year. (The theatre’s mainstage productions are currently on hold as per CDC and New Jersey state guidelines.)
Originally developed by one of our area’s directors, Penny Potenz Winship, each play is carefully chosen to offer actors a creative challenge and the audience a creative experience.
Readers’ Theatre has always been our way of giving back to the community for their support and patronage of the regular mainstage productions. We are pleased to keep this tradition going, thanks to technology.
This year we aim to increase our outreach to diverse communities and provide space for voices that have been underrepresented on stage for far too long. Our Reader’s Theatre presentations will focus on presenting original works that explore, navigate, and elevate the diversity that is all around us.
