Readers Theatre Like You’ve Never Seen… Or HEARD… Before!
First, the story is a winner. Roxie is a street-smart, no-nonsense private eye who comes to the aid of an English Baroness in distress. A sleazy con artist threatens to expose something that the Baroness was hoping would remain a secret. Will Roxie save the day?
How it works:
1. Play the movie, either a DVD or an MP4 file.
2. First you’ll see a short countdown, then music plays, followed by the actors’ lines which appear on the screen, whether it is a computer, TV, or a projection.
Then, the movie plays — except you supply the acting! The image on the screen is the script; the audio is the perfectly timed sound effects. To help actors keep the right pace, the lines change color as the movie plays.
A unique and fun theatre experience, useful for classes, performances, meetings, or parties! It’s the easiest way to create an old-time radio drama.

“Readers Theatre Karaoke” added a whole new dimension to our Senior Theatre program. The seniors loved seeing their lines on the screen and they picked up the format really quickly. The sound effects made the show extra fun! I love “Readers Theatre Karaoke!” — S. Barley, Life Enrichment Director
