Free Readers Theater Scripts!  

Come and get them!

 
In this Readers Theater All Year restaurant we like to serve it up "all you can eat!"

But, to keep this website free of lots of annoying ads and easy for a non-techie to administer we have to pay for several services that help you.  Most of our scripts are in our Script Buffet Club where you may have access 24/7 for pennies a day–with new scripts added regularly.
 
All of our trustworthy Readers Theater scripts are printable and come with annotated curriculum links for easy lesson plans!

Praise from Teachers

Wow! I have to tell you that your script, Twas not the night before Christmas (????) is soooo funny. The kids love it! Thank you. They laughed so hard....

Pat R. Elementary Teacher

...Keep doing what you are doing.  There are not enough quality scripts available for children and teens.  So many are inappropriate from a parent's perspective.  As a teacher I want to also build character and integrity while I teach a subject.  Why can't drama build up, inspire and be thought provoking?...Anyway, keep doing what you're doing...we need all the help we can get!

Jen H., Drama teacher

...I have been teaching for 35 years. RT has been part of my education journey for the majority of that time. Initially my experience with it was as a performance genre in the Drama Curriculum. Now I use it across the curriculum - a wonderful high motivation strategy in the language program - particularly reading - and so much more as you would know. I was drawn to your 'community' by the idea of leadership... I think what you're doing is wonderful..."

Graham B. Former primary teacher (now a Visual Art and Drama specialist)

Readers Theater All Year is the most comprehensive collection of Readers Theater scripts and resources I have found on the internet!...Thank you Carol for your leadership and vision and for making Readers Theater so accessible for teachers and parents.

Daniel Fiore, Elementary teacher/author What They Have Taught Me

I found the free readers theater online scripts, teaching tips, and curriculum teleseminars at Readers Theater All Year very inspirational to me. I used the Twelve Days of Christmas...Vacation script in my ESOL classes before Christmas break and my students all enjoyed it..

Lily T. Teacher (English for Speakers of Other Languages)

..We did Squanto's Squash for the family on Thanksgiving and [my sons] participated and loved it. I am so excited about making this a major part of homeschooling. What a great way to learn!
