A Reader's Theatre Summer Stock performance will take place at the Oak Park Arms retirement community.
From ensemble and script readings to poetry solos and adaptations of short stories, the Reader's Theatre offers a variety of performances.

The Oak Park Arms will feature a Reader’s Theatre Summer Stock performance at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, at the Oak Park Arms retirement community, 408 S. Oak Park Ave.

A special ending will feature baritone Howard McClain singing a summertime selection.

The group, led by Paul Bularzik, was formed just six months ago. While most of the members are residents at the Arms, the group is always willing to welcome members from the outside community. In fact, they hope to partner with other groups and may do so with kids from the Oak Park Public Library’s teen readers for some intergenerational projects.

The Reader’s Theatre group will offer a wide variety of performances ranging from ensemble and script readings to poetry solos and adaptations of short stories.

Current members include: Gloria Hannas, Marion Ulrich, Paul Doolin, Marian Menges, Henry Turkowski, Charles Costello, Nancy Elsmo and Marie Munoz.

Visitors are welcome to attend weekly rehearsals at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays.

The Oak Park Arms is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Furnished apartments are also available for a short-term stay - a weekend, a week, a month or longer.

The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, and reservations are required. For more information call Jill Wagner at 708-386-4040 or visit
