Christian Readers Theater

Are you having trouble finding Christian Readers Theater scripts?  You're not alone!  There are some available in books and a few online, but for some reason it's been hard to connect the dots from what we want to what we can find. 

Maybe you're just looking for positive puppet or Readers Theater scripts that you can use in your homeschool, public school, your Christian school, your church, your camp, or your drama club?  Whatever the reason, Readers Theater All Year™ is here to help. For now you have two options at Readers Theater All Year™: 

•   Free Christian Readers Theater scripts with annotated curriculum links

•   Readers Theater Script Buffet for paying members (all scripts with annotated curriculum links for easy lesson plans)  

NOTE:  Script Buffet Club members may request topics for scripts.  I have a wait list, but I continue to add new scripts (including scripts based on Biblical literature).

Free Christian Readers Theater Scripts

First, check our index of Free Scripts Here (also listed on our home page).  Although there is a limited number of free Readers Theater scripts in the Biblical Literature section, you may find scripts in other sections to meet your needs.  I try to provide a variety of positive and character-building scripts, many of them with some humor.  I have read several Readers Theater scripts in books that are unacceptable due to teaching bad attitudes or including creepy characters.  We now have a character-building section in our growing All-You-Can-Eat Script Buffet Table of trustworthy scripts for grades K-8+.  

Christian Readers Theater Script Buffet 

, you may check out our article, "Why Do Teachers and Parents Join Readers Theater All Year's Script Buffet Club?"   Our paying members enjoy the 24/7 "all you can eat" menu of over 360 trustworthy Readers Theater scripts–including character-building Readers Theater and Readers Theater based on Biblical literature. 

I try to help our Script Buffet Club members as much as possible.  Many of our scripts are written to meet the needs of our members.  When I write a custom script for a Script Buffet Club member I share it with our entire caring community in the Script Buffet. 
Everyone pays a little and reaps a LOT. Membership costs pennies a day–and you'll have access to our trustworthy "all-you-can-eat" Script Buffet that includes annotated curriculum links with each script for easy lesson plans.  For instant access:  Join Now here.

You're on a Readers Theater treasure hunt, but are you willing to band together with our growing community of caring parents and teachers to build leaders and creators?  If so, please fill out the colorful balloon box in the right column of this page for your free gifts.  Thank you!

Together we'll change the world!
Cheering you on,

I just discovered a powerful video to give you some creative ideas for Readers Theater as worship:  

Readers Theater All Year™ LLC builds leaders and creators for positive influence through an inexpensive, easy, flexible system.  Readers Theater All Year™ LLC curriculum services provides a caring community for using and creating Readers Theater scripts for families, classrooms, homeschools, camps, and drama clubs.

Praise from Teachers

...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!
Bethany P. Homeschooling Mom

> our script "The Earth Day Hen and Friends" I've used this! The kids love it. Thank you for sharing...It's just right for all levels in the class...Your free scripts are wonderful!...They learn so much from drama and reader's theatre...I see the shy ones gain confidence as they read. Fluency and prosody increases with reader's theatre...
Angela D., 3rd grade teacher
