The Readers Theatre

Attention Theatre enthusiasts! Conejo Players is thrilled to bring back staged readings with its present-day program, The Readers Theatre.

20 years in the making, this reimaged Readers Theatre program will be offering staged readings of a wide range of plays including unpublished works, beloved classics and contemporary plays that may not otherwise be produced on the main stage. Whether you’re a die-hard fan of the classics, or a seasoned theater-goer interested in new plays, this program has something for everyone. Best of all, Readers Theatre performances are free of charge – but CPT donations are always welcome.

Readers Theatre offers a unique theatrical experience – a staged reading in which actors present a play or musical in front of an audience without sets, costumes or other production elements. The actors are not off-book, which means they typically have the script in hand while they perform. It allows the audience to focus on the story and the characters. A staged reading is a great opportunity for audiences to experience new plays and works that would not otherwise be mounted as full productions. It’s also an excellent opportunity for actors to showcase their performance skills.
