About The Group
Do you love theatre but can't remember all those lines? Well, join the club! The newly-formed Starlighters II Reader's Theatre Group can help, because we use scripts during performances!
Available for anyone 13 up to 60
Join the six Walker sisters in "Belles:The Reunion" as they discuss, via the telephone, their loves, their lives, and "Mama's" behavior at the nursing home on Sunday, July 30th at 2 pm at Starlighters II Community Theatre.
The play by Mark Dunn is his second centering on the Walker sisters who all grew up in Memphis but have since scattered across the country. Dunn has even chosen Cedar Rapids as one of the sisters' residences.
He writes some serious moments and revelations, as well as heart-warming moments with much interwoven laughter.
The presentation will be done in a modified Readers Theatre style. Cast includes Kathleen Weiss, Dawn Marek, Betty Jean Moeller, Jan Beardsley, Carrie Rinehart, Jan Cratsenberg, and Jayson Stover.
Dessert will be served to patrons after the show at tables set up in the lobby.
Some things Reader's Theatre Does
Reads play proposals for next year's selection.
Puts on small productions that allow limited set, costumes and props and allows you to just read and BE your character.
Gets together with the rest of the team to create something NEW
We will be holding a "Snippets" Readers Theatre meeting.
Show dates and times for our "Snippet" productions is yet to be determined.
What is "Snippet" Readers Theatre???
This is an opportunity for our actors to act out their favorite story. We ask the participants to bring 1 or two of their favorite books and pick out 1-2 pages that can be used to act out.
If you are interested in being a part of this opportunity, our first meeting will be on April 30th from 2pm-4pm.
Please come prepared with your book of choice. Have more questions? Contact us here.
