Come one, come all!

Do you love to read aloud with dramatic flourish?  Are you interested in American history?  If you are age 12 to 112, then come be a part of the Bull Run Readers’ Theater Workshop, offered by The Falmouth Public Library beginning tomorrow, April 14- 20, 2012. 

In the book Bull Run, “Northerners, Southerners, generals, couriers, dreaming boys and worried sisters describe the glory, the horror, the thrill, and the disillusionment of the first battle of the Civil War.” * As a reader’s theater, actors will read from the text, with emotion, but minimal props and costumes. No experience or memorization is necessary to take part in this workshop, just a desire to bring the past alive with your voice! 

Or, if you would rather watch then take part, be sure to come to the performance!  Cathy LeMay, the artistic director, has a wonderful production in mind and she plans to work creative ideas from the cast into the event as well. It is sure to be a fun learning experience for everyone, and ... there will be refreshments!
