Aaron Shepard
Reader’s Theater Editions



Reader’s Theater Editions are free scripts for reader’s theater (or readers theatre) adapted from stories written by Aaron Shepard and others—mostly humor, fantasy, and world tales from a variety of cultures. A full range of reading levels is included, with scripts aimed mostly at ages 8–15. The scripts may be freely copied, shared, and performed for any noncommercial purpose, except they may not be posted online without permission.

As noted in the listing, some scripts come also in a “Team Version,” scripted for four readers with at least two females. These scripts are offered primarily for smaller groups such as after-school programs and homeschoolers, as well as for college and professional readers.

Special features are available for many scripts. These can include printable color posters, photo features, audio recordings, extended author notes, fun writing exercises, and additional story formats. To find these features, follow links to Aaron’s Extras. For info on children’s books adapted for these scripts, follow “About the Book” links or click or tap on the book covers.
