Tips for a successful readers theater:
* choose your readers carefully!!!!, remember most Sunbeams can't read so don't get upset if you hand them the part and they're holding it upside down looking at you oddly
* Have plenty of scripts!! At least one for each part. Highlight the parts according to each script so it's easier for the children to follow and know when they're speaking.
* Give them a few minutes to look over their part, sing some songs while doing so.
* Bring in SIMPLE props or costumes. Ties for the modern day apostles. Shawl for Anna. Just go easy, you want their attention focused on the message and doctrine of the play!!!
