"The Free Readers Ensemble"
is an actor-based ensemble
whose mission is to present
diverse theatrical and literary material
in a readers theatre format
to Oak Park/River Forest
and the surrounding communities.
While stripping away production values
such as sets, props and
elaborate costuming, we strive
to celebrate the magic of the writers’ words;
from playwrights and poets to authors
and screen writers.
Through voice and dramatic interpretation,
we hope to bring alive a world of literature
to our audiences, while achieving
a high standard of consistently
entertaining and thought-provoking
And, with special regard
for our audiences and the community,
it is our intent to offer this for free.
Free of spirit
Free of restrictions
Free of charge
We are "The Free Readers Ensemble."
